2. Fabian Delph – Is he ready to take the big step?
Delph was always considered a talent since his early days at Leeds United and he made a switch to Aston Villa in 2009 but he didn’t really shine for the club and was sent back on loan in 2012. The move to the Premier League might have been a little early for the English midfielder but for the past 18 months he has become a much better player and an important player for Aston Villa.
The playmaker might not have the physicality that Gerrard possessed but Delph has slowly and surely become one of the best midfielders in the Premier League and if Liverpool do want to sign someone British then Delph could be the answer and he wouldn’t cost a huge fortune like the other players in the list.
