Liverpool Transfers: 3 Readymade Replacements For Lucas Leiva

The rise of Lucas and his importance in the Liverpool is akin to a phoenix that rises from the Ashes. Lucas has been instrumental in an impressive Liverpool run which has seen them rise to 8th in the Premier League just 5 points behind a top 4 spot.

Lucas has been part of a team that has picked up 21 points from a possible 30 with just 1 loss in 10 games, he has become that important to the club but at 28 years old, he could be looking at a new place. Liverpool were thinking of selling the midfielder and if they get the right price they might as well let go of the Brazilian, in case they do here are 3 readymade replacements for the Brazilian.

For some reason he just cannot get a game at Real Madrid and his move to Arsenal has stalled. Khedira’s career has stalled post him getting injured after the World Cup final and that seems to be the end of his time at Real.

He was in advanced talks with Arsenal but that seems to have fallen through. Khedira was one of the best midfielders in the World and surprisingly he will be available on a free at the end of this season. Liverpool could make one of the greatest coups of the transfer window.

Morgan Schneiderlin

Liverpool raided Southampton like they were expanding their empire; they got a lot of stars from Southampton but missed out on one big star. Schneiderlin has been one of the best players for the Saints under Koeman and has been linked with a move away before the January transfer window opened.

He has a great pass completion rate and also is great at interceptions, plus he can tackle as well and break the rhythm of the opposition. He would click really well with the rest of the Saints players at Liverpool and maybe help Dejan Lovren get his groove back.

Jordy Clasie

He might be diminutive but he surely packs a punch, the Feyernoord man is just 23 years old but plays a great game, although just playing in the Eredivisie, he has been called to the senior Holland squad and has made a number of appearances for the club.

He might not seem to be physical but he is strong enough to dictate games on his own and isn’t bullied easily in midfield. Clasie would add some class to the Liverpool team and would come for a bargain at the club.
