3 Former Liverpool Targets Klopp Should Look To Sign This Summer

Liverpool have signed 4 players so far this summer and are expected to make a few more signings before the transfer window closes. The club has been linked with many players, some highly improbable while some quite in the radar. Liverpool have also been linked with Pepe Reina, a former Red. Klopp also has a chance now to go after a few former targets who might join Liverpool if a proper bid is made. Here we will discuss about 3 former targets, whom Liverpool can sign.

1.) Sadio Mane

Sadio Mane was once a Liverpool target during Brendan Rodgers’ era and has been linked with a move to Liverpool during the today itself. Liverpool had rejected Sadio Mane and the Senegalese winger joined Southampton. The prolific winger has scored 27 goals in 61 appearances for the Saints since joining. Mane was excellent for Southampton last season and performed extremely well against Liverpool in both the fixtures. Reports suggest that Liverpool are scouting Mane, who is valued at 25 million euros. Sadio Mane will be perfect for Liverpool and Klopp should go after him. He is the best example of a former target whom Liverpool can sign this summer.

2.) Theo Walcott

Theo Walcott has been consistently linked with a move to Liverpool throughout his career. Walcott did not get proper game time at Arsenal last season and reports suggest that he is quite frustrated due to it. Walcott is extremely quick and makes very efficient runs down the wings. Walcott is a threat when it comes to counter attacks. His pace and ability to play short passes make him very potent at counter attacks. His dribbling skill is also beyond doubt. His style of play will help him adjust to Klopp’s tactics. Reports suggest that Walcott is unhappy at Arsenal and wants to leave the club. This is the perfect time for Klopp to make a bid for Walcott.

3.) Thomas Vermaelen

Former Arsenal player and captain, Thomas Vermaelen has been again linked with a move to Anfield. Thomas Vermaelen had an injury ravaged first season at Barcelona, managing just one appearance for the Spanish giants in the 2014-15 season. The fit-again defender did manage 20 appearances for Barcelona last season, but considering his experience, they were pretty less. Liverpool have Dejan Lovren and Joel Matip as their first choice defenders and with Kolo Toure’s and Skrtel’s future uncertain, Vermaelen could play Toure’s role as an experienced backup. Vermaelen will also get much more game time at Liverpool than he is getting at Barcelona. A move to Liverpool will be advantageous for both, the player and the club.
