Liverpool owner John W Henry drops transfer hint after Bournemouth win
Following Liverpool’s 9-0 win vs Bournemouth, club owner John W Henry gave a ‘thumbs up’ to a supporter in what appeared as a request for a midfielder from the said fan. The same was relayed on Twitter courtesy of Suleman Qureshi (@sullylfc5).
Liverpool’s only senior options in midfield currently are Fabinho, Jordan Henderson, James Milner, Fabio Carvalho and Harvey Elliot. The latter also is a chiefly right-winger who can put in more than just a shift in the role he’s playing currently.
Thiago Alcantara, Curtis Jones, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and now very recently, Naby Keita are all sidelined owing to different injury issues. The supporters’ want for a new midfielder is justified and Jurgen Klopp also very recently expressed his desire to get onboard a new player in the middle of the park.
John Henry’s apparent thumbs up should give the supporters a bit of relief in times wherein the club has been struggling in the middle of the pitch against quality opposition. After the shock loss to Manchester United, the talks for a new midfielder amplified furthermore.
The owner made a rare appearance at Anfield, and the players treated him right. A record-equalling 9-0 win to treat the fans and the owner after an abysmal start to the season. The Reds currently sit eighth on the points table and would hope to climb up the ranks sooner than later.
