Former Arsenal man Paul Merson has implied that Liverpool have missed a trick by not signing midfielder Yves Bissouma.
Merson believes that the Mali international would have been a good signing for Liverpool.
"I look at Liverpool’s midfield and feel he could play for them. £25 million in this day and age – it’s nothing. Spurs have nabbed an absolute bargain.”
Anfield Watch Verdict
Bissouma is a talented footballer. The midfielder averaged a WhoScored player rating of 6.93 across the 2021-22 campaign, which backs up the aforementioned argument.
Therefore, Bissouma would have been a decent addition to Liverpool's midfield. But, it just wasn't meant to be.
So, in the short-term, we are confident Liverpool will be fine in that department.
Going forward, we would love to see the club sign Borussia Dortmund midfielder Jude Bellingham. The 19-year-old, who has been linked with a move to Anfield, is considered to be one of the finest talents in the game.
Because of Bellingham's age, he could play in Liverpool's midfield for around a decade.
