After a lackluster start to the 2022/2023 campaign, Liverpool finds themselves in a position where they must fight to secure a spot in the top four and qualify for next season's UEFA Champions League. However, to prevent a repeat of this season's disappointments, the Reds need to bolster their squad with new signings. In this article, we will be looking at the two potential signings that can bring much-needed strength and stability to Liverpool's midfield and defense, respectively.
1. Mac Allister: Resolving the Midfield Woes
Liverpool's midfield has been plagued by injuries, with key players such as James Milner, Thiago Alcantara, and Jordan Henderson missing significant portions of the campaign. With Milner leaving and concerns surrounding the fitness and aging of Thiago and Henderson, it is imperative for Liverpool to reinforce their midfield options. This is where the Argentina international Mac Allister comes into the picture.
Mac Allister, known for his technical ability and versatility, would inject fresh energy and creativity into Liverpool's midfield. His vision, passing range, and ability to unlock defenses with incisive through balls make him an excellent fit for Jurgen Klopp's system. Additionally, Mac Allister's work rate and defensive contribution should not be overlooked, as he has shown a willingness to track back and press opponents effectively.
2. Josip Gvardiol: Fortifying the Backline
Liverpool's defensive woes have been evident this season, with Virgil van Dijk and Ibrahima Konate struggling with injuries and inconsistent form. To address these concerns, Liverpool should consider acquiring the services of Josip Gvardiol
The Croatia possesses the qualities necessary to bring a new dimension to Liverpool's backline. His imposing physical presence, aerial prowess, and ability to read the game make him an ideal partner for Van Dijk or an alternative option in central defense. Gvardiol's composure on the ball and ability to initiate attacks from deep would also align with Liverpool's style of play, allowing for smoother transitions and improved distribution from the back.
