Liverpool’s Best Summer Signing

11 Sep

Liverpool’s season kicks off tomorrow against newly promoted Leeds United at Anfield.

But there’s been a lot of criticism by Liverpool supporters regarding the lack of transfer business this summer.

So far this summer Liverpool have only added Konstantinos Tsimikas to their squad as cover for Andy Robertson, and fans are a bit worried as rival clubs, especially Chelsea, have invested heavily in strengthening their squads.

The fact is other teams need to catch up on Liverpool, as the champions have proved they have the best team, and have a squad capable of winning the title that eluded them for so many years.

However, it is important that Liverpool don’t lose any of their important players like Salah, Mane or Firmino to name a few.

But there has been constant speculation that the Reds could lose Georginio Wijnaldum to Barcelona this summer.

The Dutch international is going into the final year of his contract at Anfield and new Barcelona manager Ronald Koeman is believed to be wanting to bring Wijnaldum to Spain as he tries to rebuild the fallen giants.

The transfer speculation surrounding Wijnaldum is fuelled by the rumours that Champions League winners Bayern Munich’s Thiago Alcântara could move to Liverpool.

In my opinion, signing Thiago would be a bonus, but keeping Wijnaldum is a must.

Gini has proved to be a very important player for Liverpool in recent seasons, and he is one of Jürgen Klopp’s first names on the team sheet for the most important games.

Wijnaldum’s work rate and discipline in Liverpool’s midfield allows others to push forward, Trent Alexander-Arnold and Andy Robertson thrive on the freedom to get forward that the midfielder’s role allows.

The Dutch midfielder is also very durable and very rarely injured, so I believe that Wijnaldum signing a new contract would be the best transfer business Liverpool could do this summer.
