Opinion: Forward will soon be best in the Premier League and Liverpool must sign him

Jack Grealish is going to be the best player in the Premier League and Liverpool will be making a big mistake letting a rival sign him.

Football Insider reports that Jack Grealish has had his head turned by Manchester City and hopes to join the Premier League champions this summer but Liverpool simply cannot let this happen.

Sadio Mane, Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino will all be 30 by July 1 next summer and so Liverpool need to begin planning for the future otherwise they risk finding themselves behind the likes of Chelsea and the Manchester clubs with regards to their recruitment.

The Anfield outfit has recently proven to be the best in England with regards to their proactive recruitment. Not only have they consistently bought players just as they were about to enter the best years of their careers but they have also bought them at really good prices.

Mane, Salah and Firmino cost Liverpool a combined £97million and have won the biggest trophies available at club level but now is the time for Jurgen Klopp and FSG to deviate from their transfer protocol.

Jack Grealish is on the verge of becoming the best player in the Premier League and there should be an effort made to bring him to Anfield where he would wreak havoc.

In 26 Premier League games this season, he scored 6 goals and assisted another 12.

His attacking numbers are great but it’s his build-up play that is so devastatingly effective and it’s something that is lacking at Liverpool.

The Reds rely far too much on crosses from Andy Robertson and Trent Alexander-Arnold but when they’re not on it, there is a distinct lack of creativity.

If you have a right-wing like Salah, a clinical striker in Vlahovic’s mould and a very creative forward like Jack Grealish, you’ve got a front three with a little bit of everything and the potential to blow away defences.
