Revisiting Liverpool and Andriy Yarmolenko

Given that Liverpool were willing to spend £30m on Willian, even if the Brazilian does end-up going to Spurs, is a very positive sign about the club’s financial ambition. Supposedly, any incoming deals up to that value are not dependent on Luis Suarez’s sale, so we can assume that Brendan Rodgers is still looking to add to his squad.

About a year ago, I suggested that Liverpool take a look at Dinamo Kiev’s Andriy Yarmolenko, and nothing he did in 2012/13 has made me change my mind about that – the Ukrainian international would still be an outstanding signing.

If Rodgers wants a Willian-type player, then Yarmolenko is not going to be his cup of tea, but the 23 year-old does offer a lot of the same attacking strengths. He’s not as technical, and he isn’t as good to watch, but he’s a powerful and direct winger who loves to cut-in off the wing and has no inhibitions about trying his luck from within thirty yards – and he’s better with the ball at his feet than you’d expect from a taller, rangier player.

An expensive player, but an extremely good one – Liverpool could do a lot worse, and Yarmolenko would make them instantly a better side.

  1. Here are 5 i think would do us good my favorite is Bruma he can kick with his lefy and right foot which means he can play on both wings.


    Jesse Rodriguez- Right Winger.

    He has come out and said he might have to move to get 1st team football and now Real Madrid has signed Bale and Isco i think we should try and loan him for a year with the option to buy at the end of the year.

    Bruma – Left and right Winger.

    This player likes to run he scores goal and he can kick with both feet in my eye he should be are top target and we should put in a good bid. (Chelsea are after this player)

    Clément Grenier – Right Midfield.

    This player is class he got a eye for goal and his first touch and his passing are great.
    The only problem i see with this is how to fit him and Philippe Coutinho in the same team but if you could they both are very good players.


    Mats Hummels – Central Defender.

    We need a world class central defender i say put a cheeky bid in but i can not see Borussia Dortmund letting him go and if they did its going to cost and our owners do not like spending but i would make him our key summer signing if he would come.

    Kurt Zouma – Right Defender/Central Defender.

    Strong solid defender this play would not break the bank and would be a great edition to liverpool football club.
