Jack Butland

Liverpool might have signed Virgil van Dijk ahead of the winter transfer window but the Reds could be boosted by another player deciding to join the club as Football.London claims that we could be signing a goalkeeper soon.

The report suggests that Stoke City’s Jack Butland wants to move to Anfield and not to Stamford Bridge. The Blues see the England international as a replacement for Thibaut Courtois who could be looking to join Real Madrid in the summer.

The 24-year-old is regarded as one of the best keepers in the Premier League and has always been one of the players expected to make a jump from Stoke to a bigger club. The report also claims that we might have to spend over £30million to sign the player up, which isn’t all that great given how much we have spent on Van Dijk.

Butland The Solution To Our Goalkeeping Problems?

Well, we have seen how our goalkeepers are always the last line of defence. Simon Mignolet and Loris Karius have not looked rock solid this season at all. Mignolet even flapped a couple of times in the 3-3 draw against Arsenal recently, while Karius has struggled to assert himself, even when playing in Champions League games.

Butland is one of the best keepers in the league and he would be a better option to have than both the players. Jurgen Klopp seems to have understood that major changes are required and the goalkeeping department is one to be improved.

The 24-year-old Butland also commands the box well and he would have to communicate a lot with our defence but with Van Dijk joining, we might just have a prominent pair at the back to reduce all those unwanted goals we regularly concede.

If Butland really wants to develop, he should join our side and paying £30million for the 24-year-old would be a wise investment given that he is young and will grow into a better player with the years to come.

This could be the final piece of Klopp’s Jigsaw, looking to challenge for the title and hopefully, we can finalise this deal soon too.

(Video) Liverpool sends fans down memory lane with memory of fantastic goal



Fabio Aurelio Liverpool

Liverpool pulled a rabbit out of the hat by signing Andy Robertson from Hull City. The Scot wasn’t a big name then and didn’t cost us much but he has been incredible since breaking into the first-team.

The newly appointed Scotland captain is easily one of the best left-backs in the world and is only getting better with game time.

Although Liverpool have finally signed a dependable left-back, that wasn’t the case for many years as Alberto Moreno and Jose Enrique never seemed to fulfil their potential.

The Reds were a little unlucky with one player and that was Fabio Aurelio, the Brazilian. The former Valencia player was a Red for six seasons but made just 87 appearances in the Premier League.

The left-back was known for his incredible delivery and had a fantastic moment or two. His goal against Manchester United at Old Trafford is one of our greatest moments post the Champions League win in 2005 and FA Cup in 2006 and the Reds wished the 38-year-old on his birthday.

The Brazilian was great at set-pieces but his injuries prevented him from reaching his potential. Rafa Benitez got the best out of the now 38-year-old but the defender had to retire a few years ago as injuries caught up to him.

Former Liverpool star claims he wants to play under this manager



Kevin Keegan Liverpool

Kevin Keegan’s managerial career can be remembered for his rant against Manchester United and slumping behind the advertising hoardings after Liverpool beat Newcastle 4-3.

The former England star was one of the best during his time as he picked up a couple of Ballon d’Ors and won numerous titles as a player for the Reds.

Keegan certainly knows a thing or two about winning trophies and in a recent interview with the Guardian, the former England captain added that out of the current managers, he would love to play under Jurgen Klopp.

The Reds play attacking football but Keegan claimed he saw a bit of himself in Klopp and hence, would have played under our manager.

“I’d have to go for [Jürgen] Klopp because he’s like me.”

“He is going to tackle someone one day.

“I was very close to it [too]. When someone was breaking away and it was near the touchline, and I was stood there, I was very close one day to bringing him down. I really was.”

The 67-year-old is right about Klopp’s passion for the game and that is one reason why we are doing so well. The German has turned us into one of the best sides in the country and it is time for him to break his trophy duck at Anfield.

The Reds last won a trophy in 2012 but with Klopp at the helm and the players producing incredible performances, we may have something to cheer about at the end of the campaign.

“Wasn’t his best goal”, “He scored better” – Some Liverpool fans are certain Puskas had better goals last season



Mohamed Salah Liverpool

Mohamed Salah came third in the best men’s player category at the recent FIFA awards but the Liverpool star did pick up the Puskas Award for the best goal of the season.

The winning moment came against Everton on 10th December 2017 as Salah jinked past a couple of players before curling the ball into the net.

The effort was adjudged to be better than Gareth Bale’s strike against us in the Champions League final and Cristiano Ronaldo’s effort against Juventus in the same competition.

Salah was on a tear last season as he broke the Premier League scoring record with 32 goals in the competition. The forward had a number of magical moments and a few fans were convinced this wasn’t the Egyptian’s best goal of the season.

There were brilliant efforts against Watford and Tottenham that come to mind. The 25-year-old hasn’t been on fire this season but the award should come as a handy boost for the remainder of the campaign.
