When you have a hot streak, keep rolling! That fits in with Liverpool’s philosophy this summer.
In the spotlight of Everton signing ROMELU LUKAKU yesterday, Liverpool signed Lukaku’s Belgian teammate, Divock Origi, for 10 million pounds.
Origi is one for the future, at just 19 years old. However, Origi proved he could play at the World Cup this summer, when he became the youngest Belgium World Cup goal scorer with his winner against Russia.
Origi will remain at Lille, his previous team, on loan this season and join up with Liverpool for the 2015 season.
After the purchase of Loic Remy from QPR went south after a failed medical, of all things, Liverpool might still need to buy another striker.
Rickie Lambert and Daniel Sturridge are the only two big name strikers the club has, which I think means the team will have to seriously consider purchasing Wilfried Bony of Swansea CIty, who has been linked to the club. Bony’s 16 goals last season was a bright spot for a team that went on to finish 12th.
Bony makes sense and, maybe more importantly, Liverpool could maybe purchase Bony for around 15 million pounds. Like Thomas Vermaelen to Manchester United, it’s one of those deals that makes too much sense, so it probably won’t happen.
The Reds should also consider buying another defender, especially because the back-line was so atrocious last season.
Look in the coming weeks for a blog on the transfer market winners and losers.
