Reds boss Jürgen Klopp will be looking to add some genuine quality to his ranks this summer, as he prepares to guide his team to a successful campaign, both domestically and on the continent this season.
If the German truly wants to make a statement on the European stage, the addition of a game-changing superstar will surely feature highly on his agenda.
Liverpool look likely to flex their financial muscle this summer, and were linked with a move for Borussia Dortmund star Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang last month, according to German media outlet Bild.
That interest seems to have cooled now, with Chinese interest apparently turning the Gabon international’s eye, and Klopp should consider switching his focus to PSG’s Angel Di Maria.
talian media outlet La Repubblica report that Serie A giants Inter Milan are plotting a £44 million swoop for the Argentine, but the Reds should enter the race, and in doing so, attempt to get one over their fierce rivals Manchester United by signing a player who the Red Devils deemed surplus to requirements two years ago.
The 29-year-old showcased his ability on a consistent basis at the Parc des Princes last season, scoring 14 goals and providing eight assists in 43 appearances for the French giants.
The left-footed winger is explosive when in possession of the football, and his incredible skill-set, combined with his impeccable technical ability would offer Liverpool a far more potent threat in the final third.
Whilst a figure in excess of £44 million for a 29-year-old seems rather extortionate, the potential benefits that Di Maria could bring to Klopp’s team makes it totally worth it.
The 86-capped Argentina ace could reach extraordinary levels playing under the German, and if he did move to Anfield, there would surely be a few jealous glances from Old Trafford, after they allowed the superstar to leave their club two years ago.
