Arsenal Banter brings you latest update on Arsenal news from top media sites like Daily Mail, Metro, The Express, The Independent, The Telegraph, SkySports and so on.
Liverpool fans are hoping the clubs brings in some other major signings to accompany the signings of Mohammed Salah from Roma and Dominic Solanke from Chelsea.
Following their 4-0 triumph over Tranmere Rovers in a friendly game, Jurgen Klopp hinted that the club was not in a hurry to seal any deal for further additions. However, fans are hopeful their transfer business will be completed before the beginning of the new season, which give new arrivals enough time to familiarize with their teammates and get accustomed to Anfield.
As it has been for the majority of the Summer, Naby Keita and Virgil Van Dijk are still Klopp’s primary targets, if reports in the press are anything to go by. Historically, Liverpool hasn’t been afraid of purchasing talent from within the Premier League. Thus, we bring to you two players we think would be better off at Liverpool. Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Olivier Giroud.
Liverpool need a top goalscorer, Olivier Giroud could be the best option. Roberto Firmino has been leading the Reds’s lines well but he not been able to pick more than 11 league goals in a season for Klopp.
In five seasons with Arsenal, the lowest total of goals he’s scored is 16, his total from last season, where his appearance was reduced. Given a starting spot in Klopp’s squad he could perform well, he’s an excellent finisher and good in ball retention. The Reds have required goalscorer since Suarez left, the Frenchman could be their solution.
The Englishman’s contract with the Gunners expires next year, and he is yet to put pen to paper. The 23-year-old would significantly give boost to the play of most Premier League teams, he is homegrown and flaunts priceless versatility. During his time as an Arsenal player, the ‘Ox’ has used as a winger, and attacking midfielder, a central midfielder and even at right wing-back.
It is exceedingly rare to find a versatile player who can excel well in numerous positions; this is of tremendous benefit when rotating players or when trying to identify cover for starting players. Southampton’s former starlet is arguably good enough to start for Liverpool; his arrival would notably add more depth to Klopp’s squad.
