Ian Rush, a legend amongst the Reds fans, has come out and stated that he would want former Tottenham man Gareth Bale to sign for Liverpool.

The Welsh Wizard might have won a number of trophies with La Liga giants Real Madrid but he has fallen out of favour due to a number of niggling injuries. The player also has never been a fan favourite despite saving the club in the Champions League finals on a couple of occasions.

That, along with the rising talents of Isco and Marco Asensio have seen Bale fall down the pecking order but Rush also stated that the best option for Bale would be to stick with Real Madrid.

Speaking to the Mirror, the Liverpool legend said:

“Gareth Bale is a world class player – every club in the world would want him. From a Welsh point of view, I’d like him to stay, to get more European experience. That will benefit Wales.”

While Wales will not be playing a part in the upcoming World Cup, Rush was quick to add that almost every Premier League club would want to have Bale in their side and he would love to see his fellow Welshman at Liverpool.

“Any English club would want Gareth Bale,” he added.

“Maybe Tottenham have first offer. Man United has been talked about, maybe because the goalkeeper [David De Gea] could go the other way?

“I’d love to see him at Liverpool though. A world class player. We don’t know what will happen but it would be great to see him back here and at Liverpool.”

United A More Likely Destination For Bale

Rush did hit the nail on the head when he suggested that United could be the team that could get Bale. United have been linked with the Welshman for a couple of years and with the former Tottenham man also possibly looking to return to England, (I hate saying this) Jose Mourinho might be the one to get the deal done.

From our point of view, we do have a couple of world class wingers in Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane but Bale would provide a different outlet given his pace and strength. The Welshman might be getting older but having a quality player like that cannot hurt us.

Buying Bale from Madrid would be a tough task given that the Spanish club would ask for a lot of money and that is where the swap with De Gea could work out for Manchester United.

It seems like Bale would be too big a player for us at the moment and this is exactly what Klopp has to change at the club, which is to make us an attraction for the best players in the world.

Harry Wilson

Wales defeated the Republic of Ireland in a UEFA Nations League game and they have Harry Wilson to thank.

The Liverpool youngster stepped up to score a brilliant free-kick for the away side in the 58th minute.

The 21-year-old was in the news earlier in the season when he smashed in a free-kick at Old Trafford. Manchester United were the opposition for Derby County on that evening and the Welshman’s goal helped the Championship side knock the Red Devils out of the Carabao Cup.

The 21-year-old is on loan at Derby and is one of the brightest youngsters at Anfield. The Welshman certainly got a lot of people talking with his effort against the Republic of Ireland and some fans believed the attacking midfielder has a great future ahead of him.

Alberto Moreno

Liverpool left-back Alberto Moreno has just one start to his name this season and that came in the 2-1 loss against Chelsea in the Carabao Cup at Anfield.

The game will be remembered for an Eden Hazard wonder goal, where the Spaniard was taken to the cleaners by the Belgian.

Moreno has found it tough to reclaim his starting spot in the Liverpool team, with Andy Robertson putting in a number of great performances. The newly appointed Scottish captain is possibly the best left-back in the league and was with the national side during the international break.

The Spaniard was training with the other members of the squad at Melwood and a brilliant video of his was shared. Moreno can be seen doing a couple of quality flicks during training and that got a number of fans interested.

The left-back has been linked (h/t Mirror) with a move to Barcelona in the winter window, and some fans believed this video was a ploy to increase his value ahead of a possible sale.
