Liverpool are in need of a revamp and Rodgers is set to task on this front before anything else. Gaston Ramirez, Adam Johnson, Juan Manuel Vargas and Victor Moses are a few names which make sense when it comes to new faces.

“I’m looking forward to bringing in three or four players that can really affect the group. The reality is there are very few players who can come and make a difference to Liverpool.” ai??i?? Rodgers

It all begins here. The appointment of a new manager is done. The man has already won the hearts of several Liverpool fans through his style of speech and the philosophy he aims to implement at the club. That was the honeymoon period though. Now, the time has come to act for Brendan Rodgers. It is time to see why the owners put faith in a 39 year-old manager who became famous within the confines of England for his work at a relatively smaller club. Is Brendan Rodgers as well prepared with his Liverpool targets as he is with his words?

Letai??i??s take a closer look at a few potential targets and the ones who are most likely to see the sun set on their Liverpool careers.

Potential Targets

Gaston Ramirez (Bologna)

Belgium has emerged as a nation brimming with talent that has been catapulted across Leagues. On the same page, Uruguay is another nation which can boast of a highly potential talent pool. The Reds wasted little time in acquiring the services of Luis Suarez and Sebastian Coates. Now, the next Uruguayan player on their radar is Gaston Ramirez.

Ramirez, who currently plies his trade at Bologna has emerged as one of the hottest properties across Europe. He joined Bologna in 2010 for 2.5 million euros but after guiding the club to a top 10 finish, few have failed to identify this man who played a pivotal role in the clubai??i??s rise.

Ramirez surely fits the bill if you take into account the kind of philosophy Brendan Rodgers aims to preach at Liverpool. The player has vision, good ball control and is quick in identifying a good pass at any point on the pitch. All this, with his bag of tricks, will surely make Ramirez a Kop favourite sooner rather than later.

“Youai??i??ll see that within two years, he will be on Alexis Sanchezai??i??s level” – Bologna Sporting Director Carmine Longo on Ramirez

One of Liverpoolai??i??s main concerns last season was the lack of goals from midfield amongst other things. The arrival of Ramirez will immediately alleviate any such fears amongst the Liverpool diaspora. Also, now that first preference Gylfi Sigurdsson has agreed to join Tottenham Hotspur, chances are that the Reds will pursue Ramirez with a stronger intent.

Adam Johnson (Manchester City)

The case of Adam Johnson is quite simple actually. He is at a big club which won the Premier League last season; started just ten games, came on as substitute in sixteen more, eventually led to his omission from the England squad for Euro 2012. No matter which club is interested in him, Johnson must be thinking of his future now.

Liverpoolai??i??s need for a younger winger with comparatively more flair than Stewart Downing is not something many would disagree with. Johnson is equally effective on the either side of the wings. In fact, he is more effective when he starts on the right and cuts in to whip in a cross and take a shot on goal.

Johnson also has decent dribbling abilities which can help him pair up well with Suarez within the eighteen yard box. His crossing power will only benefit Andy Carroll who thrives on such deliveries. The presence of Johnson will also help in effective counter-attacking since he is faster than Henderson and formerly, Kuyt.

With age and pace on his side, Adam Johnson ticks the checkboxes FSG are looking for and would be a good fit at Liverpool. The only area of development for Johnson would be to work on his defensive play; given that Brendan Rodgers demands an equal dedication to attack as well defend on the pitch, Johnson will have to up his ante and contribute to defending off-the-ball which demands a high work rate from the player.

Juan Manuel Vargas (Fiorentina)

At 28 years of age, Juan Manuel Vargas has become one of the key players at Fiorentina alongside Stevan Jovetic. The left-footed Peruvian international has built up his experience at Serie A having previously played at Catania for two seasons and now at Fiorentina for four seasons.

Although his presence can spread across several areas on left midfield, Vargasai??i?? potential is best witnessed when he plays in left central midfield ai??i?? a role previously handled by Gerrard and Alonso at Liverpool. This heightens his vitality on the pitch even further. However, one cannot be entirely convinced on whether Vargas is really a value-add at Liverpool.

Juan Vargas - Not the Best Option?

.

Vargas is known to succumb to lapse in concentration while on the pitch which consequently affects his passing. Now this is not something that will go down well with someone like Brendan Rodgers whose Swansea side was ever alert and present with the slow but continuous passing build-up. Hence, it is unlikely that a fax from Liverpool will reach the Viola, asking them to name a price for Juan Manuel Vargas.

Demba Ba (Newcastle United)

Who wouldnai??i??t pounce on a player whose release clause is just around 10 million pounds, has notched up 15 goals for his club the previous season helping them to a fifth place finish?

Demba Ba has risen to become a Toon favourite in just his first season at the club. He was earlier the star striker for West Ham when he joined the Hammers in the winter of the 2010/11 season. In just twelve appearances that season, the French-born Senegalese footballer scored seven goals, attracting attention from Everton and Newcastle United.

At 6 ft 2 in, Ba has an imposing physical presence on the pitch and makes it difficult for defenders to get around and win the ball back. His height and body structure also allow him to hold the ball up the pitch, allowing the midfield to enter the frame of play.

Demba Ba is a no-nonsense finisher who is good with either foot. Hence, his ability to link up with Suarez could yield richer rewards than the pairing of the Uruguayan with Andy Carroll.

Newcastle will surely not let go of Ba this easily though. His partnership with Pappis Cisse showed some promising signs last season and Alan Pardew will fight tooth and nail to keep both the players at the club while he plans to make further additions of his own.

Possible Departures

Maxi Rodriguez

After two seasons at Liverpool, Maxi Rodriguez could be the next player to depart the club before the start of the 2012/13 campaign. Rodriguez shone for Liverpool when Kenny Dalglish took over in the winter of the 2010/11 season with ten goals and 28 assists. However, last season saw him take the bench more often than not albeit his arrival on the pitch sure did add a spark to Liverpoolai??i??s attack every single time.

The only reason Rodgers would see him out would be because of his age. Yes, 31 is not considered too old by many, but at this point in time, it is more likely that Rodriguez will once again warm the benches than get some substantial playing time.

It is rumoured that he could make a return to Argentina, back to his first club ai??i?? Newellai??i??s Old Boys. If it is true, then we could well see the promotion of someone like Raheem Sterling from the Academy to take over his role.

Charlie Adam

The return of Lucas Leiva once again reaffirms the midfield to the Liverpool captain and the Brazilian midfielder. Now, the presence of Henderson, Spearing, Aquilani and Charlie Adam only means Rodgers will have a tough time deciding how to utilize these players week-in week-out.

With the 4-3-3 system that Rodgers prefers, coupled with the fact that between Henderson, Spearing and Adam, Henderson and Spearing could be given one more season at the club, chances are Charlie Adam will be the man who is sacrificed.

Will Adam Get His Chance Next Season?

.

Adam didnai??i??t really have a memorable first season in a Liverpool shirt as he sat out through much of the second half of the last campaign due to injury. His lack of defensive discipline also makes him a candidate who could go up on the transfer list.

Stewart Downing

On the 22nd of this month, Stewart Downing turns 28 years old and if he is playing for Liverpool next season, then donai??i??t expect much of an improvement from the winger.

Even after creating the most number of goal-scoring chances after Luis Suarez, Downing still failed to notch up assists under his belt. This is not something that will make one smile especially after learning that that Downing started in 28 games last season and came on as a substitute for eight games.

This will be one signing for which Liverpool will have to take a hit. It will definitely contribute to the loss when the numbers are out but more importantly, Downingai??i??s sale would make room for a new and younger winger (Adam Johnson maybe) who can help add that Spanish flair that Brendan Rodgers was talking about.

    • sadfasdfasdf says:

      You do know that rogers will not read your comment and that you are talking to your self

      • Voland says:

        Rodgers will certainly not waste his time reading any of these comments, this is just friendly banter between Liverpool fans who want to express their (amateur) opinion to similarly minded people.

  2. Ofuobi says:

    Broda i suport u. Let reina go.liverpool wil change 4 beter.

  3. Please Rodgers,let pepe Reina,Andy Carrol,charlie Adam,stewart Douwning leave, they are more of failure then success.we are desperate to see are new signing,in likes of Victor Moses,Adam Johnson,Juan Vergas and Gasto Ramirez,donot Forget Hugo Lloris,to filled up the gaps,thanks

  4. Ricardo says:

    So we are linked with Ramirez, Johnson, Ba and Vargas (one natural wide man). And you are reporting that we shouldn’t be surprised to see Downing and Maxi leave our current two best wide men.

    It wouldn’t surprise me if we only added to the squad. I’d be happy with Ramirez and Ba, over the moon with Johnson (on the right!).

    Our transfer budget doesn’t allow for player like Downing to leave, we can’t replace them with the same quality cheaply. He is still a good squad player, if not starter. And why would we only give him one season after spending 20 million on him? It isn’t solely his fault that none of his crosses were finished. I remember on at least 3 occassions Carroll hitting the woodwork from his crosses. Sure that is still a poor return but I guarantee that he will create and score this season if given the chance.

    We only need to strengthen the right side and up top in my oppinion and a versatile midfielder who can play on either flank. We’ve got Cole and Aqua coming back, hopefully Aqua will be given a chance to show what he can do, and I would never have never let Cole leave, too much ability and we missed his creativity last season.

    I would also like to see Sterling and Suso given a chance this season. They both look light weight but they need some experience.

  5. Kaychampion says:

    My advice is that we keep maxi at least for another season. Expect if there’s a good replacement and on hugo lloris i tink dat is a good deal.

  6. marcus says:

    common coach take ur tyme and don’t rush things,look 4 players dat suits ur style of football,or else u are sitting on a time bomb. Gud luck chief.

  7. Holy mike says:

    My blove chaoch, we are all bhind u. We know there is no majik to suces in foothball rather than hard work. All we want to see is progres on & off d field. Best of luck Rodgers, YNWA

  8. Joy says:

    IMO Rogers should bring in Kalou for free in place of Dirk Kuyt that would leave him with the entire transfer kitty to buy other players plus he is more than handful and can socre goals as well . I think we should keep Aquilani but off load Joe cole that would also shape up the wage bill, Maxi was good last couple of seasons but he already 32 and don’t expect too much out of him, so he can be released as well.Sell/Loan Spearing and get Dempsey in, add one more striker in the mould of Adebayor or Ba for around 10 mln would be useful and lastly one more defender preferably a LB or a LCB .Also would like to see Suso and Sterling given more chance .

  9. Kam says:

    Brendan hurry up and buy Ramirez, Johnson, Vargas and Afellay. They will make a difference to Liverpool. All technically superb, skillful, fast and most importantly can play the ‘Tiki Taka’ way. We maybe need one striker aswell to compete with Suarez and Caroll

  10. Liam says:

    I like this, we shud sell adam, downing and maxi, if he wants to leave and get johnson, ramirez, and possibly another striker.

  11. DEAN says:

    FOOLGLISH DESTROYED ARE FOOTBALL CLUB !!! £80 MILLION POUNDS FOR ADAM DOWNING HENDERSON & CARROLL :{ THEN HE GOES AND TOPS IT BY GIVING JAY{HEADLESS CHICKEN,LIABILITY}SPEARING A NEW CONTRACT ? THE MIND BOGGLES :{ MADE UP FOOLGLISH GOT SACKED,AND NOT MOVED UPSTAIRS ? ARE YOU HAPPY YOU,VE DESTROYED ARE CLUB FOOLGLISH WITH YOUR CHAMPIONSHIP PLAYERS :{

  12. Josh says:

    couldn’t agree more with everything you’ve just said, other than shipping out charlie. not just yet, i think he can still learn under gerrard and lucas and can be a great player, he just needs to calm down (in the least cliche way possible), stop jumping into tackles so much and learn to control the game, i know a lot to ask, but he has the potential there, he’s still relatively young. id much rather get rid of that fool shelvey, or even better henderson! i’ve seen NOTHING from jordan that merits even being branded a decent footballer, and shelvey, well, lets just say it wouldn’t be proper to write what i think of him…

    the signings you mentioned, all great, i’d add elia to the list too though. joe cole next season…watch this space!

  13. RoGue says:

    I like the idea of getting Adam Johnson and Gaston Ramirez but it would be nice if we could also see Iker Muniain, Javi Martinez and Daniel Sturridge in LFC colours as well. Then, BR will make the team great at the back, in the middle and in front (with his style of play). With Stevie G, Lucas and Martinez in midfield and a front 3 of Iker Muniain, Suarez and Adam Johnson, I think we’ll actually have a chance of competing for the title or at least a champs league spot but who am I to kid? We couldn’t even get Sirgurdson.

    • Voland says:

      That would be fantastic, however I fear that Javi Martinez would cost too much for us. Ramirez, Muniain and Javi Martinez would make Liverpool into a force to fear across the land (and beyond!)

  14. karl says:

    Decent article. Must say I’d prefer keep Downing, as despite his poor season, he has more to give as evident from his days at Villa and also I’d prefer sign a 2nd winger and have two, rather than selling one to buy one. In terms of the center mid I think Adam having lower wages than Aquilani will make the difference. I see Maxi, Aquilani and Spearing departing.

  15. Voland says:

    I hope we bring in Ramirez to play on the wing, a striker (to complement Carroll and Suarez), a left-sided defender (to provide competition to Enrique, who faded badly towards the rear end of last season) and a playmaker such as Muniain. Having lost Kuyt, I hope we can hang onto our other players, including Downing, Maxi and Adam – who I feel can all prosper in the right tactical formation.

    If Brendan Rodgers can show the same tactical awareness and strategic thinking of the great Rafa Benitez, we should be in for a treat …

    AM SHARD’G TEARS.

  17. KALANZI ASHRAF says:

    we need u benitez!!! in the middlez of next season.

  18. dave says:

    i think its a its a finisher we need a top quality striker, our defence and midfeild played very well last year we created alot of chance and couldnd score,its not a back up striker to keep carol on his toes,we just cant take the risk hes going to come good, and wouldent it be a sin to distroy a good midfeild.Id give stirling maxis job,lone shelvy out keep joe c to presure downings place. i do think carol will come good but dont think hes going to have a quik fix. dempsey my not have age on his side but he has few years yet and hes cheap he can hold the fort to carol or mybe young adam morgon and the likes get going

  19. Ruari says:

    I doubt we will be selling anymore this window except maybe 1 remeber we need a bigger squad for europa

    • Anthony Branknon says:

      I beleive that BRENDAN RODGERS wil get back the days of glory LIVERPOOL use to have….he should just get a quality and skillful striker to match up wit CAROL and SÜAREZ…
