Why would Tierney or Zaha come here to be a backup? I get their other alternative is Arsenal but it’s Arsenal with a guaranteed starting spot and the chance to push for Europe and silverware via cups.I'd love to see us sign Zaha who can play anywhere across the front three. Make CP an offer of $50 mill + Wilson for Zaha. I'd also want us to bring in one of Coutinho/Fernandes to improve the middle of the park.I'd also sign Tierney who can play either right or left back. The signings of Tierney and Zaha would throw a wrench in Arsenal's plans as well.
This is why it’s so dam hard for us to bring in the level of quality we need, they simply won’t come. Salah, Mane, Trent, Robertson are worldclass, so if you play that position you are coming in as 2nd choice and considering how robust they are you could be looking at games in the cup and/or a few in the league to rest only.
It’s also about cost. Klopp won’t be splurging £70mil on Zaha for someone to play 10 games or so.. he’d rather those minutes went to Origi or Brewster (or Wilson depending on pre-season).
