Our Liverpool and Spurs fans here in the Transfer Tavern know just how important it is going to be that they keep their top four places this season.
The Champions League race has truly been ferocious this season and our landlord cannot believe just how competitive it has been with five sides going for it behind Chelsea – the runaway leaders.
Certainly, then, whoever makes those spots come the end of the year will surely have an advantage over those that don’t in the transfer market and that really could come into play in the race for Ben Gibson.
The Middlesbrough defender has been superb this season for the Teeside club but it really does look as though they are going to go down this season.
Defensively they are very sound, of course – thanks to the likes of Gibson – but going forward they really are as blunt as it gets.
Indeed, that is why it’s likely Gibson is going to move on at the end of the campaign and, according to ESPN, both Spurs and Liverpool have joined the race for his signature.
Thoughts, Reds and Lilywhites fans? Let us know below!
