7 Liverpool Transfer Targets

1. Simon Mignolet - Sunderland (GK)

This is a done deal. I think this deal will be great. However it could depend on whether Pepe Reina jets off to Barcelona, though he has said recently that he is happy at Liverpool, whether or not he will be first choice keeper! You can see more on the Mignolet transfer in my previous post.

2. Ashley Williams - Swansea (CB)
Liverpool have been linked with Williams ever since his great performance two season's ago in the middle of Swansea's defence. He had another solid season this year and would be a great asset to any team. It's thought that Arsenal are the front runners for the Welsh defender though and I'm not sure that Liverpool would stump up Swansea's £10 million asking price!

3. Henrikh Mkhitaryan - Shakhtar Donetsk (AM)
Tough name to say, huh? Henrikh, or Heno as he is often called, looks like he could move to Liverpool. He has expressed his desire to move to Liverpool but Shakhtar will have to receive a big offer especially after losing star player Fernandinho to Man City. It is rumoured they want to £20 million and that Liverpool are willing to pay, with the £15 million from the Andy Carroll sale being put towards it! He sure would be a good player and worth every penny, he would link up great with Coutinho. 

4. Iago Aspas - Celta Vigo (ST)
This deal has been wrapped up, with Aspas heading to Anfield for around £7 million. This could mean Suarez is on his way out though I doubt he'll be a good enough replacement for Suarez himself but he will be a good player.

5. Kyriakos Papadopolous - Schalke (CB)
This is a very good player, Papadopolous has been tracked by Man City and Chelsea in the past but it know looks like it will Arsenal fighting against Liverpool for this solid centre back as well. With Skrtel possibly on the way, Papadopolous would be the perfect replacement for Liverpool and would be great in the Prem as he is so strong. He also has plenty of European experience so would help Liverpool get back amongst the big boys.

6. Christian Eriksen - Ajax (CM/AM)
Eriksen is a great young player who has been linked to most European club including Man United and Chelsea. He looked set to sign for Liverpool but they wouldn't meet the £20 million asking price set by Ajax. This could mean that Henrikh Mkhitaryan is the first-choice transfer for Liverpool. I doubt this transfer will happen but anything's possible!

7. Luis Alberto - Sevilla (ST) 
This is another done deal, Liverpool really are focusing on strikers this year it seems! This could yet be another signal of the imminent departue of Luis Suarez. However its more likely that Alberto is an investment for the future with the 20-year-old not even getting into the Sevilla team, with him being loaned out to Barcelona B last season. He may be a great player in the future though!

  1. Henrikh Mkhitaryan has joined Borussia Dortmund so Liverpool have missed out on him! This could mean a Christian Eriksen deal could be on, would he be a good signing? Who do Liverpool need to buy to fire them back among the big boys?
