With the Euro 2016 underway currently in France, players have the perfect opportunity to showcase their talent on the world stage. One such player who will be looking for new suitors is the Slovakian Marek Hamsik, who is currently under contract with Napoli in the Italian Seria A. Hamsik has already shown what he is capable during his time in Italy and will be looking to continue in the same vein in front of the wider audience at the EUROS. He is a world class and his goal against Russia in his team’s 2-1 win only further underlined his exceptional ability.

Jurgen Klopp will be looking forward to his first full season in charge at Liverpool next season but he will also know that he needs to bring in some world class talent to the Merseyside if he wants to bring back success to the Reds fans.  In many ways, there are echoes of Gerrard about Hamsik’s excellent career to date. The Napoli star has spent years turning down offers from some of Europe’s biggest clubs, staying loyal to the Serie A side instead. But with Klopp now in charge, Hamsik might be motivated to make that much awaited move.


The Napoli winger is at the peak of his career at 28-years-old and scored a sensational goal for Slovakia in their second match against Russia. He has consistently been amongst the goals during his stay at the Italian Club, with Sturridge uncertainty given his injury record; it makes sense for the Liverpool boss to get Hamsik, who is a proven goal scorer with a new perfect injury record. Capable of pieces of sublime skill, Hamsik has ample of experience to help the youngsters at Liverpool and will be a natural leader upfront.

The Slovakian managed an impressive tally of 11 assists last season, which just goes to show effective he is in and around the box in creating chances for other teammates.

Taking on defenders

Hamsik had a success rate of 67% when beating defenders from the opposite team. Blessed with great dribbling ability and pace, he is perfectly suited for the high pressing game that Klopp has employed at Anfield since he took over. On counter attacks he can particularly dangerous given his propensity to glide past defenders and find that extra bit of space to unleash a thunderous shot.
