OPINION

These Liverpool fans seem extremely disappointed by their reported failure to sign Paqueta, with AC Milan looking poised to spend £30million on the 21-year-old in January. Paqueta is a brilliant talent, with the youngster already catching the eye of Tite and earning two caps for Brazil already.The only worry about Paqueta would be that he is still raw, and has only played in Brazil. That would mean there would likely be a significant bedding-in time which would see him adapt to English football – just as the club are seeing with Fabinho at the moment. That being said, there is no doubt that Liverpool could have done with his talents this season, with the Reds missing out on Nabil Fekir from Lyon over the summer. As a result, they are missing some creativity down the middle going forward, with no real number 10 in the squad. There is the argument that Xherdan Shaqiri could fill that role, but Jurgen Klopp has so far not deployed the Switzerland international in that position.
