Of course price is the issue, we are not bloody Citeh with their infinite money that they can buy a £70m bench warmer. Shaquiri will be an extra option for us, he won't be the main big marquee signing, I really don't get the issue here, I find it baffling. Bottom line if he works hard he will be a very good player for us, if he doesn't then sell him on next summer, what exactly is the issue??
How do you know that he isn't the marquee signing? That's what worries me. How do you know that we aren't signing him so we can convert him into a am?
I'm all for having shaqiri to add depth in the squad but as long as we add a creative midfielder/am too.
Ox saw himself as a midfielder, arse fans didn't and neither did Wenger.
he has played as a midfielder for us most of the time. It's no secret that jk likes player who can play in different positions.
what if the board said. We know boss that you want fekir, but we can't get him now. What if we buy shaqiri as buffer until the next window?
I'm not saying it's the way it happened, nobody knows what's happening but I fully understand people who say aim for the stars.
we are in CL again, we were in CL final. We have a lot of pull to get the players we want atm. Why don't use it to sign blockbuster players. They are huge risk but they have a huge reward as well.
Just for the record. I don't mind us signing shaqiri but let's aim bot higher and get someone who can create magic at anfield. I want to win things. We have been steadying ship for too long, it's time for the title push.
