I wrote an article for Bleacher Report last week about why signing Yann M'Vila would bring out the best in Steven Gerrard.
I don't want to repeat myself, but he'd be a perfect signing for Liverpool.
Let's be honest, Liverpool have never been able to find successful replacements for Xabi Alonso or Javier Mascherano.
Without going overboard, I'd put M'Vila in that class of player.
If Liverpool could sign him, it accomplishes two things.
It sends out a statement of intent to their rivals and it would allow Steven Gerrard to concentrate on driving forward, where he's most effective.
M'Vila is still a young man, so if Liverpool are serious about building a dynasty, young players have to be a central part of that.
