‘Twas the week before Christmas, when all through the Kop there were plenty of creatures stirring actually, especially Brendan Rodgers who undoubtedly has visions of clinical strikers dancing through his head. As the January transfer window looms large, reports say Fenway Sports Group has made it a priority to bolster the attacking options and get Luis Suarez some much-needed support in front of goal.
With Martin Skrtel on the verge of signing an improved four-year contract extension, Liverpool fans are left wondering what to make of the Daniel Agger situation. The Danish center back has explicitly stated that he has no desire to play for any English club other than Liverpool.
Liverpool may just make the transfer, even though I have two years left. But no, I have not changed my mind on the subject when I said I will not play for other English clubs than Liverpool, but sometimes you can still get in a situation where it’s not your decision.
I will not stay in a place where I am not wanted, but I’d rather be here. This is my priority.
With roughly one month left until Deadline Day 2012, the transfer market is clearly heating up. The Reds no doubt will be thankful to escape the heat themselves, having endured temperatures north of 100F in their trip to Baltimore and close to that in Boston. As a successful North American tour comes to an end we’re provided with some answers and yet even more questions. Brendan Rodgers fielded a seemingly endless combination of youngsters and veteran talent, and we got a glimpse of the “tikki takka” style of play that he hopes to produce. While Liverpool may not have recorded a win in its three game tour, it’s worth noting that the competition included an in-form Toronto FC and much more veteran and familiar sides in AS Roma and Tottenham. Nevertheless there remains a great deal of work to be done.
Liverpool announced the signing of Roma forward Fabio Borini today after weeks of speculation that the Italian forward was to sign with the team. Since the arrival of the club’s new manager Brendan Rodgers, Borini has been mentioned as a player the former Swansea boss was interested in bringing to Anfield. Boroni is Rodgers first signing since he was appointed manager.
