Despite Brendan Rodgers stating the Luis Suarez situation has been “resolved”, that hasn’t stopped Liverpool being linked with a new striker this morning.
That is a couple of big ifs, but the Reds have been burned before, when they believed they had all but signed Henrikh Mkhitaryan only to see the midfielder join Borussia Dortmund.
Liverpool have also been linked with a player referred to as “the new Arjen Robben” – 16-year-old Richairo Zivkovic.
The winger currently plays for FC Groningen and has reportedly been tracked by Liverpool for some time.
While there is little doubt he would be a good addition to the current squad, Reds fans may feel they need to sign some more experienced players to go with their already impressive youngsters.
According to claims from agent Ahmet Bulut, the Atletico Madrid play-maker has previously been the subject of a failed bid from Monaco and attracted interest from both Liverpool and Arsenal during the last transfer window.
“The transfer of Arda to the Premier (League) this summer is likely,” Bulut said.
