In my opinion I think Liverpool need at least 5 signings for next season in order to challenge for the top four and maybe the title.

Here are the 5 signings that I believe Liverpool should make for next season:

1. Kenny Dalglish: This is a signing that Liverpool confirmed today and the signing of ‘king’ Kenny on a three year deal is great news for the club and the fans as he is without a doubt the man to lead the club forward. The way certain players have responded to his methods and tactics has been excellent and he had instilled belief and confidence into the fringe players that were not offering much to the team. Maxi Rodriguez, who has scored 7 goals in the last 3 games, is a perfect example. The way he has brought through the club’s youngsters like Jay Spearing, Martin Kelly and John Flanagan has been terrific and they have responded by playing very well.

2. Ashley Young, Aston Villa: Young has a year remaining on his current contract with Villa and he has so far been reluctant to sign an extension. Villa will try their utmost to hang onto their prized asset but they know that if he fails to sign an extension in the summer his value will decrease dramatically and they will want to avoid losing him on a free in a year’s time. So if Liverpool were to offer in the region of £14-£18m it would be very difficult for Aston Villa to hang onto him, especially if the player decides he wants to move on. But Liverpool will face strong competition for the winger’s signature from the likes of Chelsea, Tottenham, Manchester United and possibly Manchester City.

3. Gary Cahill, Bolton Wanderers: Cahill has been one of the stand-out defenders of this season and his importance to Bolton cannot be underestimated. But Bolton know that they will most likely lose their star centre-half in the summer but it seems they will not sell for less than £20 million. This would be a huge sum of money for Liverpool but if they can reduce that figure slightly, Cahill will prove value for money and will add some steel to Liverpool’s backline.

4. Jose Enrique, Newcastle United:  Just like Ashley Young, Enrique has a year remaining on his contract at Newcastle. The left-back position has been a problem for Liverpool this season with Glen Johnson filling in there for most of this season. Enrique has been one of the best left-backs in the Premier League this season and has certainly been Newcastle’s most consistent performer. Rumours have been circulating recently that a deal between the two clubs has already been agreed, something which Newcastle boss Alan Pardew denied. But despite a tough first few years in English football for the Spaniard, he has come on leaps and bounds in the last 18 months and is highly regarded. He is solid defensively, very quick and is excellent going forward and he would be an excellent addition to the Liverpool team.

5. Balázs Dzsudzsák, PSV Eindhoven: Not many Liverpool fans would have heard of Dzsudzsak but he has been tearing up defences in the Dutch Eredivisie all season and is a real livewire. He is a Hungarian international who plays as a traditional out and out left winger and possesses incredible pace. He has a wonderful left foot, crosses the ball really well and can really shoot from distance. He has all the attributes to make a real name for himself in England and the pace of English football will really suit him.

Liverpool in the race with Man United to sign 20-year-old promising Championship defender

Lloyd Kelly

Bristol City youngster Lloyd Kelly is being tracked by Liverpool after several fantastic performances in the Championship, according to the Mirror.

The 20-year-old Englishman is predominantly a left-back but is comfortable when switched to operate as a centre-back.

Kelly has 18 Championship appearances for City this season and has even scored a goal. The Championship side lie 13th in the league as they try to push up for a playoff spot.

The report adds that Tottenham, Manchester United and Arsenal are also keeping tabs on the England U21 international. The youngster, who seems to be a player for the future, has also trained with the England senior squad under Gareth Southgate.

The report claims that we are looking to sign him in the winter window, but face competition from the trio of Premier League clubs.

The Reds have done well with some of their young players in recent years and Kelly could be one for the coming years. He could make a story similar to Joe Gomez at Anfield.

The latter joined us on the cheap from Charlton Athletic a few years ago and even made his senior debut as the left-back. However, he has now shifted to central defence and has been impressive for the Reds under Jurgen Klopp.

Gomez is out for a few weeks due to injury and hopefully, he comes back stronger as we look to continue our fantastic start to the season.

“We want to be as successful as possible” – Jurgen Klopp praises players after record-breaking start to the season

Jurgen Klopp has hailed the Liverpool players for their record-breaking start to the season. The Liverpool Echo reports that our tally of 42 points from 16 games is the best during this stage of a top-flight season.

We achieved that landmark with a 4-0 demolition job of Bournemouth on Saturday and moved to the top of the Premier League table after Chelsea’s win over Manchester City.

Klopp further gave all the credit for the feat to the players (h/t Liverpool Echo):

“I think I said a few years ago that we have to write our own history.

“It’s important but it’s not the most important thing in the world that we beat any team’s record from 30 years ago or whatever.

“The thing is that we want to be as successful as possible. Nobody knows what that means. This league is so difficult to play.”

The manager even had time to joke about the points tally we have achieved so far this season.

“To have 42 points, I usually had that in April, and now it’s December. That’s massive. It’s exceptional, and the boys deserve all the credit for that because they fight for each yard.”

Liverpool looked great in the win over the Cherries but it felt like we had more in the tank. There are a couple of tough matches coming up for the Reds as we face Napoli in the Champions League and Manchester United at the weekend.

We have to beat the Italians to make it to the next round of the European competition, and the pressure will be on to put Carlo Ancelotti’s men to the sword.

Klopp will already be planning the downfall of the Serie A side, and if we play to our potential, there could be a fantastic match at Anfield in midweek.

“It’s time for a change right now” – Former USA international urges Liverpool target to leave Bundesliga giants

Borussia Dortmund winger Christian Pulisic has been told that it is time for a change, with the January window around the corner.

The American was a target for Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp in 2016 (h/t Liverpool Echo), but the Reds had their offer rejected by the Bundesliga giants.

The Liverpool Echo adds that the Reds have kept tabs on the 20-year-old and Chelsea are also interested in signing the winger.

Former United States international Alexi Lalas believes it is time for the winger to leave Dortmund for bigger things in the future.

The American told Colin Cowherd (h/t Liverpool Echo):

“There are teams all over the world that would love to have Christian Pulisic right now. I think he’s done a great job in going over to Germany, he’s done a great job at Borussia Dortmund.

“But I think it’s time for a change right now for Christian Pulisic, and a change to an even higher profile team.”

The report adds that the American is out of contract in 2020 and should he refuse to extend his stay at Dortmund, the club could sell him in the coming window.

Liverpool could do with someone like Pulisic in their side, and he would certainly do well under his former boss Klopp.

The American is one of the bright players in the Bundesliga but hasn’t been great in the current campaign for Borussia Dortmund.
