Inconsistency has been the key to Liverpool’s rewardless season so far. Just as they seem to to get a good run of form going, they blow it, by throwing away points like they did last weekend against Southampton.
As the season has gone on though, these inconsistencies appear to be occuring less and less frequently as the players get more used to the style of play of new manager Brendan Rodgers. While any hope of finishing in the top 4 this season are effectively gone, the signs are there that Liverpool will be able to challenge the Champions League places next year.
Since the signings of Philippe Coutinho and Daniel Sturridge in January, Liverpool have significantly improved on the pitch. Rodgers will be hoping that with a few more signings his side will be able to challenge in Europe. The following is a list of 10 players (in no particular order) of plausible Summer deals for Brendan Rodgers.
10. Guillermo Ochoa
With rumours continuing to circulate that Pepe Reina will leave Liverpool in the Summer, it would be no surprise to see Rodgers sign a new goalkeeper. And they need look no further than Guillermo Ochoa.
The Mexican goalkeeper has had a very good season for an Ajaccio side struggling at the wrong end of the Ligue 1 table and has regularly been the difference between defeat and victory. He has had a number of exceptional performances recently, including a well deserved clean sheet against French giants PSG. He is somewhat of a national hero in his home country and has a reputation as being one of the best goalkeepers in Ligue at the moment.
Ochoa has previously hinted at a move to England and could be seen as a long-term replacement for Reina. Aged 27, he has plenty of potential amd fits into the age bracket of players favoured by the Liverpool owners.
