Liverpool Favorites to Land Star but Do they Really Need Him

Liverpool Favorites to Land Star but Do they Really Need HimLiverpool are back in the race to sign Tom Ince. The youngster has been heavily linked with the reds over the past few months and it seems Rodgers is eager to bring young star back to Anfield. Reds are considered favorites to land the Blackpool’s midfielder but do they really need him?
Since the English international left Liverpool in 2011, he has become a shining star in the championship. Ince has scored no less than 18 times this season and has provided 14 assists as well. Liverpool have a significant transfer season coming up next and Rodgers will have to weigh his options carefully with limited budget available.
Having bought the likes of Sturridge and Coutinho for a combined sum of 20 million in the winter transfer market, perhaps Rodgers was not allowed to move for more players but he did state Liverpool’s desire to lure their ex-midfielder. The manager claimed:

“It is about affordability as well. If Tom stays at Blackpool it doesn’t mean he won’t join Liverpool at a later stage. Maybe in this window it might be a difficult one for us.”

It seems that Tom may as well be Liverpool’s priority as other suitors are showing interest in the talented midfielder as well.
However, Liverpool already have numerous options upfront. Ince is mainly utilized as an attacking midfielder on the left wing but that spot is currently occupied by winter signing from Inter Phil Countiho. The young Brazilian has been a revelation for the reds having already scored 3 goals and provided 7 assists in just 13 appearances.
Coutinho has won over the fans with his sublime displays week in week out but that is not all. Liverpool have an array of gifted young attacking midfielders such as the likes of Suso, Sterling and the newcomer who only made his debut yesterday Jordan Ibe. The 17 year old was impressive against QPR in the final game of the season.
In all honesty, it will be hard to keep Suarez, Sturridge and Coutinho out of the starting lineup if they are fit. Therefore that actually does not leave any starting place (4-3-3) for the likes mentioned above and same goes for Ince who will surely be looking for first team football.
The list does not end there, Downing, Assaidi, Shelvey and Borini are other names as well. The good thing for Liverpool is that they finally have depth, may be little less experienced but still quality depth. It will be interesting to see how Rodgers sets up his team next season with new signings.
As far as Ince is concerned, he is way too talented to be ignored especially if the price is just 8 million. Liverpool paid the same amount to sign Countinho and you just never know the English international might prove as fruitful for the reds as the Brazilian.

    From what I have seen in championship and league Ince is a bit like Coutinho
    Imagine both tearing defenses apart for LFC next season

  2. Andre says:

    Do not need him.

  3. Jon says:

    Having Coutinho behind a front 3 of Suarez, Sturridge and Ince would provide goals and for that to happen only Downing needs to drop out from the team we are currently playing

  4. david says:

    HELL NO !

  5. Merseypete says:

    Need defenders and mid-field strength a la Delembe

  6. Mark Cowell says:

  10. amit says:

    I think we would be better with Tello for 9mill he would be devastating on right flank and coutinho behind suarez and sturridge and we should also bring diame as he will only cost 4mill and sell allen for at least 8-10 mill so this is the way we will look next season
    tello coutinho suarez
    diame gerrard

  11. Zanz Kedah says:

    LFC no need to try take Tom Ince back…..If he love to playing with LFC,he will not care any lower price that came from LFC.Now he look likes playing tug a war to demand or maybe some games.He is thinking now he is bigger than LFC.Forget about him !!! Please consider and give priority to sign in Christian Tello and Eriksen. Only this 2 player we all fans want to seeing join LFC next season.

  12. Akshay says:

    At 7-8m, he will be an absolute bargain given that LFC will get back 35% of the fee. He is a goalscoring attacking player who will improve our chances to convert goals and will be a definite upgrade on downing. get him, Robben and tello, then selling borini, assaidi and downing, loaning out shelvey, suso and sterling.

  13. sunny says:

    guys….coutinho is right winger….so tom on left and he on right,,,,blast…

  14. doo says:

    Sunny continho is not a right winger he’s a left winger or an attacking midfielder as ppl call it a #10, we don’t need him, brendan should get micah richards, diame, ben hafa and erickson fr ajax. Those r young quality players.

  15. PAUL says:

    Better than Downing

  16. Faizal says:

    He is a good player but we need great players he not good enough

  17. Steve says:

    Tello, eriksen, that’s all we need. Kelly and wisdom play centre back there good enough back up. Need a left back tho

  18. mohamed says:

    downing should stay ,coz we need him

  19. Fitz07 says:

    He will never be any good until he pulls his dad’s head out of his arse.

  20. adenaan says:
