The Red Legend wants to see the raid launched on Brighton in the next window, while he also supports Thiago Alcantara to thrive at Anfield.


John Barnes is the type of player that suits

Liverpool legend John Barnes has called on Jurgen Klopp to start the Brighton summer transfer raid for Yves Bissouma. The Seagull midfielder finds himself at the center of a slew of gossip heading towards yet another recruitment window, and Arsenal, another Premier League niggle, he says is getting over. Those in Anfield were advised to position themselves in front of any queue, with the Reds seeing serious questions about how long Xherdan Shaqiri, Georginio Wijnaldum and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain would hang. Discussing whether Liverpool should look for a raise in its engine room, John Barnes, speaking to the association, said that Liverpool should sign Yves Bissouma of Brighton. In terms of what Liverpool wants, he is the type of player that suits the way Liverpool will play.


There are a lot of changes

As the 2020-21 campaign draws to a close, there are many changes going on at Anfield. A number of different departments are defining different goals that should be a busy summer for Co and Klopp. While new faces are to be expected, one of the long-term plans for Merseyside has started to sparkle lately. The Spanish international Thiago Alcantara came from Bayern Munich with a lot of pedigree, but initially questions were asked about his value to a collective cause and role in the Reds’ side. With Fabinho now slotting next to him, with the Brazilian freed from providing cover in the center-half, the talented 30-year-old shows why Liverpool wanted him so badly. John Barnes believes there is more to come from the great playmaker, talking about Thiago Alcantara’s progress, that he will flourish when Liverpool returns to full fitness and starts playing more consistently.
