Liverpool fans in the Transfer Tavern were delighted to see the Reds back in action during their pre-season friendly against Chester.
Jurgen Klopp’s men ran out 7-0 winners in the first fixture of the new season and our regulars were buzzing to see their new signings in action. Fabinho played the first 45 minutes and almost scored his first goal but his shot cannoned off the post. Naby Keita replaced him at half-time and fluffed his lines when his first opportunity came.
Both men are expected to be key players for Klopp next campaign as Liverpool look to challenge for the title. If Liverpool are to catch Manchester City, they need to add to their wide areas. Only Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane are the recognised wingers in the squad.
To solve his problem, Klopp should look to raid Tottenham for star player – Son Heung-Min. Valued at £45m by Transfermarkt, the 26-year-old was a key player for South Korea despite their group stage exit – netting two goals in three appearances. He has remained a key player for Tottenham since signing from Bayer Leverkusen. Last season, he bagged 12 goals and notched six assists in the Premier League helping Tottenham secure a top-four finish.
He is the perfect addition to Klopp’s system at Liverpool. The winger is ideally suited to a high-pressure philosophy and has many similarities to their current wide men. Son loves to beat his man and is comfortable using either foot. He is also capable of playing as the number nine, providing much-needed cover for Roberto Firmino.
Rotating between Son, Firmino, Salah and Mane would give Liverpool one of the most feared attacks in world football.
