Liverpool Transfer Rumors: 5 Creative Playmakers Linked to the Reds
Liverpool must make changes in the midfield, as a lack of creativity has been one of the main causes of the club's poor form—hence a disappointing Premier League season.
Kenny Dalglish has to go on a shopping spree next summer to make the Reds' midfield stronger and give the club a chance of making it into the top four.
Speed, ball possession and technique are some of the abilities the candidates need to have in order to make a difference.
