The Liverpool fans in the Transfer Tavern have spent the last few days discussing who they want their side to sign in January. It’s sure to be a busy month for Jurgen Klopp, with a host of squad improvements needed if he is to keep pace with the likes of Man City, Man Utd and Chelsea at the top of the table.
It remains to be seen exactly who Klopp and company will target, but one player that Liverpool fans seemingly want to see at Anfield is Chelsea defender David Luiz. Given the Brazilian’s recent lack of game time prior to his latest injury blow, the defender has certainly lost his place under Antonio Conte to Andreas Christensen, with the Dane impressing in his absence.
Our landlord, then, recently posed a question to fans: should Liverpool sign David Luiz? Judging by the responses, they are clearly in favour of such a move, with a whopping 72% of Liverpool fans responding with a resounding yes.
It’s no real surprise, of course, given that Luiz has been in sensational form since moving back to London. He was assured, confident and consistent last season and was arguably one of Chelsea’s best players. Liverpool, meanwhile, have looked very poor at the back, and given Luiz’s lack of favourability under Conte at the minute, a deal could perhaps even be a realistic opportunity.
Chelsea fans likely wouldn’t be happy, particularly given that Luiz is such a fan favourite. Known as much for his charisma, leadership and personality off the field as he is for his skill on it, his name is often sung loud and proud in the Transfer Tavern – though the Liverpool fans in the pub would love to be able to scream his name too.
