Given what we’ve seen of The Reds thus far this season, it’s fairly clear that Brendan Rodgers will want to spend some cash during the January transfer window. There are a lot of issues with this squad and a good deal of them can’t be fixed with the club’s current personnel.
Unfortunately, it’s not very likely that Brendan Rodgers will have a good deal of money to spend this January. After all, he went all out during the summer. Following the loss of Luis Suarez he spent big on footballers like Adam Lallana, Lazar Markovic and yes, Mario Balotelli.
A lot of these new additions have struggled to make their mark and this is one of the reasons why The Reds have been so inconsistent this year.
It’s with this in mind, that I’m sure Brendan Rodgers will be on the hunt for a couple of bargains this January. He’ll want to sign players who can make a major impact on the pitch, not on the club’s bank account.
This leads me to The Metro‘s claim that The Reds are targeting two Aston Villa players: Fabian Delph and Ron Vlaar. As Villa players go, these two look like the pick of the litter. As it happens, both players contract’s are running out and they’ll be available as a free transfers in the near future.
If Rodgers decides to move in this January, there’s a good chance that he’ll be able to engineer a cut price deal. Indeed, the aforementioned source claims that this dynamic duo could may only cost Liverpool £15m. That’s a good price for two established international footballers.
Ron Vlaar is the real coup here. I’d argue that he’s one of the best centre-backs in the Premier League (he’s certainly one of the most experienced). Delph isn’t too shabby either, with his boundless energy and confident running both on and off the ball. Both players should be able to make an immediate impact at the club.
Isn’t that exactly what Brendan Rodgers is looking for?
