Liverpool have received a major boost in an attempt to bring Karim Benzema and Marco Reus to Anfield and the boost comes in form of their new multi-million kit deal with New Balance. Sportzwiki earlier reported the news of Liverpool signing a 6-year deal with New Balance worth over 300 million pounds and we think that a portion of that money will be released to sign Liverpool’s premier targets.
Karim Benzema has been a name constantly linked with a 50 Million move to Liverpool. Part of the reason he has not moved till now is thought to be the lack of funds which should not be the case now with the new Kit Deal for Liverpool. It is also believed that Mario Balotelli, Rickie Lambart and Fabio Borrini will be sold to raise the money for Benzema’s transfer make way in the squad for the France International striker.
Marco Reus is the hottest property in Europe right now with his decision to quit Dortmund next season sees him as the perfect Liverpool signing at a mere 20 Million. Reus has at least 6 clubs to choose from and Liverpool can come with an offer too good to turn down for Reus. Marco Reus would seem an ideal fit for Liverpool given the pace and mobility which Brendan Rodgers likes to operate with. Reus would find the likes of Sterling, Coutinho and Lallana complement his style of play and be lethal alongside Daniel Sturrdige.
Apart from Benzema and Reus, another long term Liverpool target has expressed his desires to leave Dortmund next season and he is Henrikh Makhitaryan. His agent came out yesterday and broke the news to the media saying, “Henrikh wants to Leave Dortmund at the end of this season, we will have to see what we can do”.
Brendan Rodgers has been a long-standing admirer of Makhitaryan’s play and this new Kit Dal with New Balance could free up funds for Rodgers to go and sign the likes of Benzema, Reus and Makhitaryan. It all however will depend on where Liverpool finish this season. For Liverpool to sign their top targets, they need to be in the Champions League. Currently Liverpool are four points behind Southampton (4th Place side in the League) and are ranked at seventh in the table.
