Liverpool, who currently sit in seventh place in the Premier League table, travel to London to play Arsenal on Saturday. In what has historically been a tough fixture for Liverpool, the Reds will need to walk away with all three points if they stand a chance at Champions League football next season.
Ahead of the match, LFC Transfer Room's writers take a look at which one Arsenal player they would sign to join Liverpool.
I would sign Kieran Tierney. The Scotsman is a player, like Liverpool’s own Andy Robertson, who gives his all for the badge he wears-a dying trait in amongst this generation of footballers.
He would provide excellent competition to play at left back, but as he showed on International Duty against The Faroe Islands where he registered three assists from centre back, he’s a versatile top-quality player who’ll give any position 100%.
As shown in recent times it looks like Tierney is a proper leader, and with the loss of Jordan Henderson and Virgil van Dijk to injury, there’s nothing wrong with adding a player who’s not afraid to tell his teammates what he thinks of their poor performances.
The Norwegian international is currently on loan from his parent club Real Madrid. Despite setbacks in the Spanish capital, Martin Ødegaard has still established himself as one of Europe’s brightest prospects.
Last season was his best yet, as he steered Real Sociedad to their highest league finish in eight years. Ranking in the 97th percentile for pass completion per 90 (84.2%), the 84th percentile for progress carries (8.14) as well as completing the ninth most goal-creating actions in the 2019/20 campaign (15), he is a manager’s dream.
If Georginio Wijnaldum were to leave Liverpool this summer, Ødegaard would bring something different to Jurgen Klopp’s midfield options. Valued at £36 million by Transfermarkt, would you like to see him at Anfield, Reds?
In what seems like a no brainer to me, I would love for Liverpool to sign Bukayo Saka. At just 19 years-old, he has already established himself as one of the main cogs in Mikel Arteta's system at Arsenal.
Targeted by Liverpool last summer, Saka has featured in 25 Premier League matches this season scoring five goals and assisting three times. He has also proven that he can perform in Europe with one goal and three assists so far in Arsenal's Europa League campaign this season.
Capable of playing on either wing and having experience playing as left-back, Jurgen Klopp could work wonders with Saka and help him reach his true potential.
