UNLESS one has been living in a closet for the past few months Liverpool FC fans are aware of the attempt made at signing former Red Thomas Ince. Although the two sides were linked heavily throughout the January transfer window a deal never came to fruition. A move for the Blackpool player still remains in the fold for the summer. But until recent revelations in the media, a move for another exciting winger was kept relatively quiet.
Balázs Dzsudzsák of Dinamo Moscow reportedly came close to becoming a Liverpool player in the recent transfer window.
The Russian club was approached by Liverpool in order to hash out a loan move for the Hungarian winger. As recent media publications are stating the move fell through because Dinamo wasn’t interested in anything less than a full purchase for their player.
If you were like me you were keen to search the web for information on this player once you realized you had him confused for a certain pair of Central European players plying their trade for Borussia Dortmund. Once the confusion was cleared up you began to wonder about the future of your beloved Liverpool Football Club.
Both Ince and Dzsudzsák are listed as wingers, a position Liverpool seems to be adding a surplus to depending on who you consider an able performer at this spot for LFC. So fellow fans it’s time to play armchair manager. Who would you rather see the Reds sign in the summer, assuming only one can be chosen?
Each player has his own advantages. Ince is already familiar with Liverpool and with the English style of play. Plus he is younger and has more days ahead of him, something management at Anfield is keen on. Dzsudzsák is considerably older, five years in fact, but with that age comes a certain experience, an experience that could be crucial in an increasingly youthful Liverpool squad.
Two purchases in the January window was perhaps, less than some fans had hoped for but given the way players have stepped up as of late it seems like it may have been the right move.
That being said, there can be no doubting that this summer should bring plenty of new faces to the training ground of Melwood as long as Rodgers does enough to prove himself to the owners.
Who these faces should be is up for debate and as fans we would be shorting ourselves if we didn’t dream about the possibilities.
