Thomas Lemar

Thomas Lemar could have been a Liverpool or an Arsenal player in the summer, however, neither deal took place and the Frenchman remained at Monaco for another season. The 22-year-old was in action for France as they lost in a friendly against Colombia, even though Lemar scored.

The midfielder recently spoke about the failed transfer in the summer and shared his disappointment at not having sealed a move away from the Ligue 1 side.

As quoted by the Liverpool Echo, the 22-year-old did say that he was open to a move in the upcoming transfer window and that he has been working hard at it.

“Regrets? Maybe. I’m not going to hide it, I was a little disappointed,” said Lemar, speaking to Telefoot (h/t Liverpool Echo).

“Once it’s over, it’s over, so I try not to think about it. I’ve kept working so that these clubs come back during the next transfer window. I am open to all offers. I am a football player, I like football. I do not close any door.”

Lemar was one of the best players in Ligue 1 last season but he has struggled to perform at the same level this season with only 3 goals and 7 assists in all competitions.

A Summer Move To Liverpool Could Be On The Cards

While we lost Philippe Coutinho to Barcelona in the winter window, Lemar was one player consistently linked as a replacement for the Brazilian. However, we did not move for the 22-year-old as Jurgen Klopp tweaked the team and with the goals flying in, there have been no questions of a replacement for Coutinho.

Lemar might not be in the best of forms at the moment but he could be one of our signings in the summer as we might look to bulk up our squad for a Premier League title challenge.

We are the only club to have defeated Manchester City in the league and if we can defeat them in the Champions League and win the trophy too, we just might be able to seal the deal for any top player we want, including Lemar.

Liverpool’s attack is great and having another creative midfielder could help us break down defences which are stubborn, similar to the issues we faced against Manchester United.

(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.
