Liverpool to pay £53m for Gelson Martins


I don’t find out about you, pricey reader, however once I take a look at Liverpool’s workforce, the evident weak spot I see is on the winger place. Mohamed Salah, who’s the Premier League’s present high scorer with 12 targets, and Sadio Mane, who has registered 4 targets and three assists in his 9 league appearances this season, are clearly not adequate.

Curiously Jurgen Klopp agrees, and as a substitute of investing in a boring central defender or left again, the German coach desires a flashy new toy up entrance. Gelson Martins, a 22-year previous winger who at the moment plies his commerce within the Portuguese league with Sporting Lisbon, is the title on the high of Klopp’s want listing, in keeping with the Mirror.

Don’t get me improper, Martins is a good participant. The winger has 4 targets and two assists on this Primeira Liga marketing campaign, however these tallies don’t even match Mane’s output, not to mention Salah’s, and a few would argue that the Premier League is a harder league to play in.

At £53m Martins is not any discount both, but when Liverpool need to follow their tactic of out scoring all opposing groups then who am I to guage?
