Liverpool’s pursuit for consistent right back still goes on with recent link to Burnley’s youngster, Kieran Trippier. After Liverpool’s bid for Southampton right back, Nathaniel Clyne got rejected, Trippier now is the centre of attraction for Liverpool.

Tottenham Hotspurs, Arsenal and Aston Villa have all now joined the race to sign the 22 years of full back. The youngster is very capable of starting an attack from the flanks as well as recovering defensively. With Liverpool looking to add young talents, Kieran would be successful as he’ll be playing with other youngsters like Coutinho, Ibe, Henderson etc.
Reports from last week also claimed Liverpool are interested in 32 years old Barcelona star, Dani Alves. I t would have been a great and in fact one of the best signings of Brendan Rodgers.

In as much as experience is need, at times the need for fresh legs and heart are very important. Burnley on the other hand are willing to leave the player should Liverpool FC trigger the release clause which is said to be around £3.5 million.
It is likely Liverpool will sign Kieran ahead of Clyne whose bid Liverpool are not willing to meet and Dani Alves which the club’s youth policy forbids to sign
