    Yes, and quite a blow it is. That is, of course, if we time travel back 2 years, when Liverpool was last interested in him. Waste of time! English media is yellow journalism through and through.

    B Rodgers should not even Consider A Turan, three things in world football all the best wingers have is pace, speed and Skill.

    And there are 5 good wingers with all those traits who could light up Anfield:

    1: RW / RWF: C Tello(21) Of Barcelona , club could get him in for £8.5-£9M or in a swap deal with P Reina and £2M

    2: RW/ RWF: J Montero(23) Of Monarcas Morelia, Club could get him for £4-£7M

    3: LW / LWF: D Capel(25) Of Sporting Clube De Portugal / Lisbon , Club could get him for £4-£7M

    4 LW / LWF: B Arfa(25) Of Newcastle , club could get him for £7-£12M

    5: RW / RWF: A Griezmann(21) Of R Sociedad, Club could get him for £8-£12M

    All these wingers are Younger, faster and quicker than Turan and have more years of good football in them.

    But out of the 5 wingers B Rodgers should bring in at least 3 of them:

    And these would be the best three Rodgers should bring to the club This Summer:

    1: C Tello(21) Of Barcelona for £8.5-£9M RW / RWF

    2: D Capel(25) Of Sporting Clube De Portugal / Lisbon for £4-£7M LW / LWF

    3: J Montero(23) Of Monarcas Morelia for £4-£7M
