Liverpool Transfer List: 4 Players Kenny Should Consider Buying

By on June 7, 2011

In the second part to the series, Two Liverpool Fans takes a look at who Liverpool should be looking to buy this coming summer transfer window.

Adam Johnson

Although largely inconsistent, Johnson is a huge game changer and could be a real livewire down either flank for Liverpool FC. Johnson is brilliant at what he does best, and that is racing past his marker and delivering a delicious cross into the box.

Furthermore, the deal could be rather cut-price as Johnson has (sort of) fallen out of favour at The Eastlands, with him getting very little game time at Manchester City. Liverpool would need him to supply the crosses required for Andy Carroll to get on to, with the Englishman’s largely imposing physical presence being put to waste this season, with Liverpool being unable to provide a consistent crosser for the Englishman to flourish at Merseyside.


Yuri Zhirkov

Definitely the choice that is going to require the most justifying from me, but I think that he is actually a quality player and it is just Ashley Cole stopping him from being a great player at Chelsea. He has scored many crackers in his time with CSKA Moscow.

Not only will he be able to fill the left back position should he come to Anfield, but he can also play further forward and thus fixing another problematic position for the reds: the left midfield position, where Meireles has been made to play on numerous occasions. A good crosser with lots of pace, I think that he could be a great signing.

Jermain Defoe

Jermain Defoe has had an up and down year, which is why one of my main reasons for suggesting his signing is because he could come on the cheap. Defoe has a really powerful shot and bags of pace to leave defenders in his wake, and that could be just what Liverpool need.

Andy Carroll isn’t exactly the fittest striker around, so I think that the solution is to bring in another proven goalscorer, one who knows how to shoot between the sticks. Jermain Defoe and Luis Suarez doesn’t sound like too bad a combination either, does it?

James McCarthy

Well, the Wigan man has been linked with a move to Merseyside, and I honestly think that it is justified. Liverpool are keen to develop their youth and McCarthy is a brilliant example of a young, British player. Young and talented, and he certainly knows how to pick out a pass.

For those who aren’t convinced: See 0:45 and especially 3:24 (Genius) of the video below…

    The LFC fans do not listen to a single word that Football talk write in this very article. We are NOT interested in any of these players & would not consider them in our squad. Dalglish & Commoli has a more prospective outlook on the type of players that will develop into world beaters. Defoe is 29 this year – and reached his peak. Zhirkov wants a return to Russia. The rest are not worthy of a place in the Liverpool team. Once again Football talk with lazy journalism and its inability to think like the LFC fans.

      Hi John,

      Thanks for the comment. Can i just point out this article was in fact wirtten by our guest writers from ‘Two Liverpool’, who are, as the name suggests, Liverpool fans. This was their opinion on who the club they support should/could sign, and not ‘lazy journalism’ on the part of Football-Talk as you suggest.

    I dont like those players appart from McCarthy and he is Irish and not Brittish.
    I would like Hazard and Mata plus Cissokho and Cheillini.

      none of those players would be willing to move to liverpool,mata has barca,madrid,utd ac milan and chelsea after him,hazard said he wouldent leave france anyways arsenal and lyon are after him and as for chellini he seems juve trough and trough turned down offers from the likes of madrid and barca….liverpool fans troughly have a short memory their”their british transfer record” until chelsea baught torres was done with chelsea money the owners were only willing to spend “resnable” money.while a very wealthy man j.w.henry dose not have 1/2 a billion pounds to his name.get real wise up.
