‘Big Players’ Coming To Liverpool

Liverpool’s Director of Football Damien Comolli has declared that ‘big players’ want to join the club when the summer transfer window opens at the end of the current season.

The catalyst for this, Comolli believes, is the return to European football the Reds have now secured after winning the League Cup at Wembley on Sunday, guaranteeing a place in next season’s Europa League.

Speaking after the Wembley win, Comolli revealed that high-profile targets have already been identified and contacted:

‘We already know that there are big players who want to join us next summer because they believe in the project ’, alluding to the plan put in place at the club since new owners FSG took over, together with the new management team.

According to the Anfield chief, stars around Europe have taken interest in developments at the club over the last few months, and with a first piece of silverware secured and bringing a return to continental action, the club now looks a much more attractive proposition.

‘Everybody in Europe knows what Liverpool football club are trying to do. Obviously the fact that we’re back playing in Europe and we’ve won the trophy, it’s all positive things. There’s a very positive vibe around the club around Europe. A lot [sic] players I know are very interested about joining the project because it’s a very interesting project.’

Such comments are a sure sign that investment in the squad is far from over, but just who are potential parts of ‘the project’ is anybody’s guess, with names like Hazard, Keita, Godin and Javi Martinez already being linked within the last 24 hours.

Once thing is for certain though – speculation will be rife from now on.

Jimmy Areabi (Editor) - @fantasista1077: Huyton raised like Steven Gerrard, football has been my passion since the time I received a Kenny Dalglish badge as a toddler, and I've followed the Reds ever since – something that was easier during the 80s, when I worshipped John Barnes! I've produced work for many football media outlets & am now happy to run a major site on the club I love - providing our fans with a voice, and to bring as much information and news on the club as possible.
Having played football all my life, I aim to continue longer than Stanley Matthews...

    I would like to see Scott Sinclair, dont think he would cost too much, certainly not the £20 million a Downing cost.

  • Chunky says:

    Is this a joke? Keita is 32!!!

  • KopAce says:

    Big players to me are players who’re also sought after by the bigger spending clubs in Europe. Players like Higuain,Cavani,Lavezzi,Hulk,Christian Eriksen, Hazard, Falcao, Gotze, Vertonghen, Lucas Moura, Neymar, Pato or Javi Martinez. These players are at least worth 20M for a start. Got it? Damien?

    • david says:

      Nice list , I wouldn’t put adam, carroll or henderson in there and look how much we paid for them !!!

  • billy nambi says:

    every one talk about eden hazad…dont over rated this kind of player.why not liverpool buy any epl player.look like our hero (el-nino) from hero to zero.my suggestion pls buy cavani or angel d maria or van persie.tq

    • Souey's 'tache says:

      Why not buu any EPL player? Yes, because Carroll, Downing, Hendo & Adam have worked a treat so far…
      I think the ‘Buy British’ to win the League policy that lots clammered for has been shown to be what it is – a policy from a bygone era that now shows misplaced arrogance. If you’re good enough, it doesn’t matter which country you’re from. If you’re distictly average…then you don’t belong at our great club!

  • yunus says:

    Damien Comolli has dreams so do I and many other Liverpool fans globally,we want our club to be the best in the world,but if you buying players like Keita 32 , surely you going backwards in your policy of promotiong our youth , i believe we have players in the youth set up like Sterling , Suso, Morgan & Coady who can step up to the plate.KD is not giving them the chance . we should invest in the youth and pay dividents later.

  • David Tyrer says:

    I do hope you’re right about Hazard and Javi Martinez, Jimmy. As impressive as Keita is at times though, I reckon he’s probably too old to fit the club’s bill in terms of signings.

  • Souey's 'tache says:

    Any of either Hazard and Martinez will do for me! These are the type of players we should be investing in. Hope Comolli isn’t just spinning us all a line…his track record so far hasn’t been the best!

  • red4Life says:

    Don’t trust this guy at all -sorry!

    Look what he spent at spurs and how many signings were a success????

    Looks shifty anyway and a waste of a salary at our beloved LFC.
