Liverpool weighing up move for Spanish speedster

Published

on

As the club continue to be associated with numerous wing signings, Liverpool may now take a look into signing Valencia wideman, Pablo Hernandez.

The Reds have been linked with the likes of Adam Johnson, Aaron Lennon and Eden Hazard in recent weeks but continue to be swatted back in their attempts.

The chase has led them to the La Liga talent, Hernandez, who has found his playing time improve since the summer departure of Juan Mata.

In 27 appearances in all competitions, Hernandez has scored two goals but racked up an impressive nine assists.

Although his goal tally doesn’t tell you much, there can’t be a lot wrong with his supply given his assist counter, which is made more impressive when you consider nine of those 27 appearances were from the bench.

Liverpool are understood to be looking into signing a winger despite the summer capture of Stewart Downing who Kenny Dalglish insists has made even more of an impact than he hoped for.

The quest for a winger may have also have something to do with the eight-match suspension of Luis Suarez which leaves the Merseysiders with only Andy Carroll and Craig Bellamy as natural strikers.

Some claim that the reason for Carroll flailing form isn’t all his fault but rather his supply chain is to blame and that if he were to receive better ball both aerially and otherwise, he would succeed at Anfield.

Whether this is true or not, the protracted departures of Maxi Rodriguez, Dirk Kuyt and Joe Cole will bring in decent funds and replacements will be needed.

Hernandez has impressed with his improved play at Valencia this campaign and should Liverpool match his £12m asking price, the Reds could find themselves with a new ammunition provider in February.

    At 12 mil. pounds he is a bargain. I have seen him play and the guy is a team player. On many occasions he could have scored himself but opted to pass to a team-mate. He is fast, strong and skilled and would be a wonderful asset to Liverpool. But I doubt Valencia will sell him, especially at the above price. He is worth around 20 mil. pounds if you ask me.
