The one Group B player Liverpool should sign after the World Cup

Alexis Sanchez Chile

The World Cup group stage is almost over, and many players have caught the eye with their impressive displays ahead of the transfer window.

Group B has seen one of the shocks of the tournament, as reigning champions Spain have sensationally crashed out in the group stage, whilst Holland and Chile have marched into the knockout stages of the World Cup, leaving Australia with the wooden spoon after three defeats, though Ange Postecoglou's side can be proud of their performances.

There have been plenty of impressive performances from both teams and individuals in Group B, and a number of players have already been linked with transfer moves, such as Holland's Daley Blind and Bruno Martins Indi, as well as Chile's Gary Medel and Arturo Vidal – and Liverpool should be looking to snap up another of the Chilean stars.

The key to Jorge Sampaoli's attack has been Barcelona's Alexis Sanchez. He may have only scored one goal so far – the opener in Chile's 3-1 over Australia on the second day of the tournament – but he's been a constant menace with his pace and energy up front.

The former Udinese man is a household name in European football having hit an impressive 39 goals and 25 assists in just 88 La Liga games for Barcelona, but the rebuilding process at the Camp Nou this summer means that the 25-year-old could be sold to raise funds for other players.

In fact, rumours suggest that Barcelona look to offer up Sanchez in part-exchange for Liverpool star Luis Suarez, but in an ideal world, manager Brendan Rodgers would be able to snap up Sanchez and keep Suarez too - forming an even more dangerous front line which also contains Raheem Sterling and Daniel Sturridge.

As Chile prepare to face hosts Brazil in the last 16, there is little doubt about who their hopes will rest on - and Liverpool will surely be watching to see how Sanchez fares under the pressure.
