Here are six potential transfers involving Liverpool that could well go through this summer, starting with possible arrivals:
Christian Benteke – From Aston Villa
The Aston Villa man has been heavily linked with a move to Anfield this summer. However, the Liverpool Echo have revealed that the two clubs are far apart in their valuation of the forward, with the Villains wanting his £32.5m release clause to be triggered. However, Robbie Fowler has urged the club to not be put off by the fee as he is the kind of player that they should be going after.
The Belgian will offer a physicality that their forward line often lacked last season.
Alexandre Lacazette – From Lyon
The Frenchman is now considered as one of Europe’s most lethal strikers as he strolled away with the Golden Boot award for the most goals in Ligue 1 last year. The Daily Star suggest that the Reds are keen, however there are plenty of interested parties they will have to beat off.
He was exceptional in Lyon’s young side last year, so may find it not too difficult to transfer that form to Liverpool’s inexperienced side.
Javier Hernandez – From Manchester United
The Independent report that the Manchester United’s Javier Hernandez is the third striker on Liverpool’s radar this summer, and based where he would come from, he would certainly be the most controversial. However, any potential move has been scuppered for the time-being, after the Mexican sustained a broken collarbone, The Independent report.
Hernandez proved during his time at Old Trafford that he is a ruthless poacher, whose game is very much based on positioning. After the Reds failed to have much success in front of goal, he would be a very welcome addition if he is just as lethal.
