10 Players Liverpool Should Sign After The 7-2 Aston Villa Tragicomedy

Liverpool didn’t have the busiest summer transfer period. But the additions of Diogo Jota, Thiago Alcantara and Kostas Tsimkas all add extra depth to Jurgen Klopp’s squad.

Despite these improvements, it’s clear that more needs to be done to ensure that Liverpool can reclaim the league title. This is especially so after last week’s devastating 7-2 defeat by Aston Villa – perhaps the most bizarre scoreline in Premier League history. So who should Liverpool be signing in the January transfer window?

Paulo Gazzaniga

After Adrian’s nightmare against Aston Villa, it’s clear that the Reds will need a new back-up goalie to Alisson. Tottenham’s Paulo Gazzaniga is key among the contenders. The Argentine goalkeeper did well for Spurs last season when Hugo Lloris was injured for a number of months.

Ethan Pinnock

The Aston Villa defeat once again showed up Liverpool’s defensive frailties. As a result, many have been calling for a new centre back. Brentford’s Ethan Pinnock has been singled out as a good option, and being left-footed would mean that he’d work well alongside Virgil Van Dijk.

Boubacar Kamara

This promising 20-year old could be another decent replacement for the inconsistent Joe Gomez and the unreliable Dejan Lovren in central defence. Kamara has shone for Marseille in the past season, and his versatility would be just what Liverpool need.

Diego Carlos

While Carlos has said that he is ‘very happy’ at Sevilla, that didn’t stop the rumour mill speculating that Liverpool was keen to add the star to their defence. It remains to be seen whether the Anfield boardroom would be willing to pay the €70 million asking price.

David Brooks

Liverpool could gain further solidity in midfield with the shrewd signing of David Brooks. The Welsh midfielder put in a series of excellent performances of Bournemouth last season, and he’d jump at the chance to play Premier League football again.

Todd Cantwell

The 22-year old was one of Norwich’s highlights from their brief stint in the Premier League. It was surprising that no major clubs snapped up Cantwell this summer. All of which means that Liverpool could swoop to get a cut-price deal for the young star in the winter transfer period.

Ismaila Sarr

While Liverpool had pretty unhappy memories of playing against Sarr last season, the club apparently ‘reached agreement’ to sign the Watford star. However, it seems that talks broke down, so hopes are high that the Senegal winger could join Klopp’s team this winter.

Wilfried Zaha

The Crystal Palace forward has been the subject of endless transfer rumours, and Zaha would definitely provide some decent competition for the deadly front three of Mo Salah, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane.

Victor Osimhen

Manchester United had their eye on this talented Nigerian forward. But Osimhen rejected a United move as he didn’t want to disrespect Odion Ighalo, and the signs are that 21-year Napoli striker could still be tempted to come to the Premier League.

Kylian Mbappe

With the news that the Paris Saint Germain striker’s price could drop to from £400 million to £111 million as he enters the final year of his contract, the time could be right for Liverpool to make the signing of the decade.
