Less than 24 hours after qualifying for the Champions League, the newspapers have started making us dream, or maybe even get sick of the usual crap?
The boys did well to not let the pressure of being chased by Arsenal affect their performance against Middlesbrough as they eased to a 3-0 win, thanks to goals from Wijnaldum, Coutinho, and Lallana. The win helped us secure a 4th placed finish and a chance to enter the group stages of Europe’s elite competition.
Liverpool now have to face a tricky qualification round of two legs to qualify for the group stages of the elite competition. With all that going around, a really interesting piece of news has emerged, with former Reds star Dean Saunders claiming that Atletico Madrid star Antoine Griezmann could now consider Liverpool as the Reds can offer Champions League football.
We’re not too sure how you are reacting to this one but we were a little excited to read this one. No matter if the chances of getting him are high or low, finally, we’ve been asked to go for a player like Griezmann instead of Andrew Robertson or some unknown lad.
The speculations are natural but this one, hearing from a former Liverpool star, featuring on LFC TV makes us smile. Saunders has called for Liverpool to target Griezmann as they’d now be able to offer Champions League football. Well, that’s an interesting suggestion. If the money is available, then why not? After all, we’re the biggest club in England, despite our recent years of struggle.
Saunders said on LFC TV (h/t Mirror),
“I mentioned Griezmann and Liverpool will be on his list now. He will have a conversation with them if he’s coming to England”
The Kop Times Verdict
Manchester United have been the club who have been linked with Griezmann over the last few months but now that we have almost secured Champions League football, we should spend the money and bring some big players to the club. Griezmann’s release clause is believed to be £85million (Manchester Evening News).
This would be the right time to spend the money as ambitious players would be willing to come to the club. Hopefully, the days of getting fed by Southampton are over and we move on and sign top players around the world by spending whatever it takes.
