Liverpool plot a cheap and tactical transfer from the Premier League’s relegated side, Bournemouth
After a long 30 years, Liverpool has finally managed to lift the Premier League after missing out by a single point last season. The Reds had also managed to win the Champions League the season before with jaw-dropping performances in all stages of the competition, including the magical 4-0 at the Anfield against Barcelona. However, this season hasn’t been the same for the Reds with disappointing performances against Atletico Madrid in the Champions League and big upsets and unusual losses in the league.
Jurgen Klopp’s side has been extremely deadly high up the pitch and rock-solid in defense, but one place they lack in is their midfield. The solid attack and defense need a good midfield to encourage linking up and abusing the attacking threat the Reds have in their side. The team somehow just seems to crumble when captain Jordan Henderson is not on the pitch and have always struggled with creativity.
One of Klopp’s main incentives next season would be to strengthen the midfield, and one such player to help his cause is Bournemouth player, David Brooks, according to the Sun. The youngster had an impressive 2018-19 season, managing to find the back of the net seven times and assisting five times in 30 appearances. But, life quickly crumbled apart for the Welsh international after an ankle injury which caused the player to be out for most of the season due to two operations.
However, the 23-year-old got his chance to play after the restart of English football and was one of the reasons Bournemouth could take their relegation battle to the last day. The addition of Brooks would be great for the Premier League champions and might enable them to strive for more than just a single trophy and hopefully aim for the treble.
Brooks was bought by Bournemouth two seasons ago from Sheffield United for a sum of 12 million euros, and now the price tag for the youngster has been increased to 35 million euros, enough for Liverpool to afford. With the Cherries being relegated and players being released, it is likely that Brooks might be playing in Anfield very soon and will get a chance to prove his worth to Jurgen Klopp and the rest of the world.
