Why Liverpool should renew interest in Felipe Anderson
As the Reds continue to hunt for that elusive Premier League trophy – and hold onto that Champions League trophy, they’ll have to keep all of their front-3 fit and they’ve made a fantastic start to this season as well, chipping in with goals and assists.
It will be difficult to find players in the market of the same quality, which is why they didn’t spend much in the transfer market and decided to get Divock Origi on a long-term contract instead of letting him leave for a free.
One player who has been linked with a move – and would be a great option – is West Ham’s Brazilian superstar Felipe Anderson.
He’s also extremely versatile as he can cover in for any of the front-three, having played in all three forward positions. He also has the energy to play in Jurgen Klopp’s system as his defensive work-rate has always been top-notch.
It’s unrealistic to expect the front-three to stay fit while also performing at such high levels throughout the season.
Klopp will need options off the bench because Liverpool can’t afford to slip up as they have some very good teams on their trail.
Anderson scored 10 goals and chipped in with 5 assists last season and was West Ham’s best forward player and it came as a surprise that he even joined the club as he came in with a burgeoning reputation at Lazio.
Liverpool should rekindle their interest in the Brazilian if the opportunity arises. He’s got all the raw attributes to really shine in at Liverpool. The pressure of competing in all the big competitions will also help.
Liverpool had their first big loss of the season against Napoli in the Champions League in midweek and will be hoping that they can put that behind them by getting all 3 points on the road at Stamford Bridge.
