3 replacements for Gerrard: Is this English midfielder ready to take the big step?

Liverpool fans will now need to get used to seeing a Liverpool team without Gerrard, the Liverpool captain announced that he would be moving away from the club in the summer transfer window and that means for the first time since the 1998-99 season, Liverpool will play a season without the English midfielder.

While Liverpool do have Jordan Henderson who has been named as a player who could take up the Gerrard role, there are a couple of better options available who could be brought into the club. Replacing ” target=”_blank”>Gerrard will be a tough task but nothing is impossible in football and here are 3 replacements for the Liverpool legend, who could do the job for Liverpool.

1. Radja Nainggolan

The 26 year old Belgian has become one of the best players at AS Roma, with Kevin Strootman injured and slowly making his comeback; Nainggolan has taken the lead and has become a stalwart for Roma.

It was a bit of a surprise he wasn’t selected into the final squad for the Belgian side but he hasn’t let that mess up his season. Nainggolan is a midfielder who likes to play in deep and then make runs often linking up with the forwards. He can even speak English fluently so language won’t be a barrier for the Belgian international.
