Liverpool linked with signing of interesting option

Liverpool seem to be on a run of doing good business in the transfer market.

Joel Matip has been an excellent purchase so far and Marko Grujic looks like a player with real potential, although we haven’t seen as much of him as we would have liked because of injury.

Meanwhile, Sadio Mane has really done the business.

Many elite sides have a far bigger budget in the transfer market than Liverpool and Klopp is doing a great job in signing rough diamonds.

And the latest to be linked to Liverpool is certainly not an A-list celebrity right now either.

The Daily Mirror reports that Liverpool are keen to sign a little-known striker:

Liverpool have a cunning plan to beat Tottenham to transfer of Norwich’s Jacob Murphy.

The winger has impressed in the Championship and the Reds are willing to sign him in January then loan him back immediately until the summer

The club already has excellent options in attack at the moment with the likes of Roberto Firmino, Divock Origi and Daniel Sturridge fighting it out for that false number nine spot.

But Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp certainly looks like he’s trying to build for the long-term and this youngster looks very exciting.

He is quick and is really comfortable with the ball at his feet.

He has been on loan at several clubs to gain experience but has started this season with 3 goals in 5 games.

As the report suggests, Liverpool wouldn’t expect to use him straight away and may well loan Murphy straight back out to his old club for further experience.

It’s the perfect scenario for the player and both clubs as Liverpool could snap the player up now and allow him to develop in the comfort of familiar surroundings.

In other news The Liverpool Echo reassures some fans by suggesting that their stalwart midfielder, Lucas Leiva, could stay at Liverpool beyond January despite interest from other teams.

TFF thinks Liverpool might be unwise to let him go as he is such a useful utility player who could play in several positions later in the season if injuries strike.

Liverpool fans – is this a player for the first team in years to come?
