Liverpool are trying to replace Luis Suarez with a number of players who would cumulatively make the squad stronger. They have already signed Adam Lallana and Markovic for the midfield position, which looked out of depth at times last season. And their summer spending is far from over with Rodgers having promised at least five new names between now and the end of the transfer window, including a marquee signing. The latest on their radar is Real Sociedad player Antoine Griezmann, who has also been shortlisted by Spurs, and according to the current rumours, he will soon be a player in the Premier League. There is a supposed war going on between Spurs and Liverpool and Chelsea are also monitoring the French international. It will be a matter of time before we see him donning the jersey of any particular club, but here we give three reasons why we feel Liverpool should not invest in Antoine Griezmann.
1. Adam Lallana factor
Last season the left wing was one of the most vulnerable spots for Brendan Rodgers’ side. There was no particular player who was natural in that position and Rodgers had to play the likes of Coutinho, Sterling to cover that area. Moreover, Liverpool did not have a decent left back and thus there was no one to make that overlapping run, making it evident to the opposition that the team would operate from the centre of the pitch or the right. But Liverpool have been quick to address that issue and brought in Adam Lallana from Southampton. He has played as a left winger for all his life and been a natural there. Antoine Griezmann primarily operates in the same position and if he is brought in now, Adam Lallana and him have to be rotated, a fact that none of the players would like.
