A Swap Deal Involving Liverpool Loanee And Adam Johnson? Why Is It A Bad Idea

published :

There have been rumors doing the round of a possible swap deal involving Adam Johnson and Fabio Borini, with the Italian striker making his move permanent in exchange for any deal for the England winger. Here are three reasons why the swap deal is a bad idea.

Liverpool lack backup in attack

Liverpool have been over reliant on Luis Suarez and Daniel Sturridge this season. The duo have scored 37 out of the 58 goals that Liverpool have scored so far this season. However, beyond that, Liverpool have no depth in the striking department. Summer arrival Iago Aspas has struggled to get minutes and has failed to impress in the limited opportunities that he has got so far.

Liverpool sent Borini out on loan for him to get more playing time and get accustomed to the pace and physicality of the Premier League, and that will undoubtedly stand him in good stead when he returns from his loan spell at the end of the season. Even though he has failed to find the net on a more consistent basis (3 goals in 19 appearances), his performances have been impressive, and his return would improve given the quality of service that would be available at Liverpool.
