As one of the more strange transfer rumours of the window so far, it was reported on Sunday that Hull City’s David Marshall has attracted interest from Liverpool, according to reliable journalist Alan Nixon. It is thought that the Scotsman, who has 27 international appearances to his name, would come in as back-up for Alisson Becker, assuming Simon Mignolet leaves in the summer as expected. However, the Reds’ reported pursuit of the Championship keeper has caused quite the stir amongst fans, but it seems there are quite a few who are seeing the logical side to the potential move, in that it would free up some funds for wages. The move would depend on the future of Mignolet, however if he were to leave Anfield, his £60,000-per week wage bill (Source: Spotrac) would be freed up for use with another player. Although the reported pursuit may not have made sense at first, fans began to see the reasoning behind the link, whilst also realising that there is a logical explanation behind it. One fan even claimed that they have urged the Reds to sign Marshall for ages referencing the player’s Cardiff days. Marshall played for the Blue Birds from 2009 before signing for Hull City in 2016. Another fan even went as far as referencing the last signing that the Reds made from Hull, which was Andy Robertson, saying: “Our last signing from Hull wasn’t bad…”
