When it comes to having a strong squad and one with considerable depth, it’s fair to say that Liverpool have one of the strongest in the Premier League.
It is a point illustrated perfectly by the fact that Jurgen Klopp’s side lead the Premier League and stand their best-ever chance of, finally, bringing the Premier League trophy to Anfield.
However, as many teams before us have found, when you hit that top spot you cannot afford to simply rest on your laurels, being top-dog is all about perpetual change.
Although Liverpool haven’t added anyone to the squad, yet, in the January transfer window, it appears that feelers are being put out to add to the squad.
Lurking in the Portuguese media source, cmjornal.pt, is the inference that Liverpool are very keen to add the exciting Portuguese U21 attacking midfielder, Joao Felix, to their squad.
However, it seems, according to our source, his current club, Benfica, are reluctant to agree to a sale and have turned down what is a huge bid for the teenager, with Liverpool offering the princely sum of £61 million.
Now, by my reckoning this youngster, if Liverpool did offer that amount of money, must be some player!
Will Liverpool go back with a higher offer or is that it?
Here at Vital Liverpool, we’ll keep an eye out for any further developments and report back as deemed appropriate.
