Liverpool have a pretty strong squad at this moment in time.
The Reds are reigning champions of Europe, the World and in a few months, they’ll be adding their first Premier League title to the trophy cabinet, barring the mother of all collapses.
At present, few – if any – teams in Europe can hold a candle to Liverpool, and credit undoubtedly has to go to the club’s recruitment team.
In recent years, signings such as Roberto Firmino, Sadio Mane, Mo Salah, Andy Robertson, Virgil van Dijk, Alisson and Fabinho have totally transformed the team’s fortunes.
The Independent bring an intriguing report today that Liverpool’s brilliant recruitment team are big fans of two top players currently playing in the Premier League.
Apparently, Jurgen Klopp and his team ‘greatly admire’ Tottenham Hotspur winger Heung-min Son and Manchester United attacker Marcus Rashford.
The Independent do add that the interest on both men is ‘immaterial’ given neither are available.
TBR’s view – Son a potential future option?
It is certainly intriguing that Klopp likes Rashford – obviously, a move to Anfield for the England international would be practically impossible.
Heung-min Son though is an interesting one.
Should Liverpool end up losing Sadio Mane or Mo Salah to a Real Madrid or a Barcelona in the next couple of years, then the South Korean superstar would be a brilliant replacement.
The 27-year-old has 80 goals and 45 assists for Spurs since signing in 2015, and his attacking quality and off-the-ball work would make him a perfect fit for the Liverpool system.
Without doubt, Mane or Salah leaving any time soon, which in itself is unlikely, would be the only reason Liverpool would perhaps act on their interest.
