Website comes up with detailed analysis of exactly what Rafa should do!
Kyle Naughton (Sheffield United) – A hugely impressive prospect at right-back, the youngster has a £7 million price-tag and a host of top-flight suitors. Capable of playing on the left (as shown in the recent play-off final) and on the wing, certainly one worth gambling on. Good competition for Alvaro Arbeloa.
Sebastien Bassong (Newcastle United) – The Frenchman was hugely impressive during his debut season at Newcastle United and will surely be hot property throughout the transfer period. Merseyside is a centre-half short following Sami Hyypia’s departure. Unless the likes of Ronald Huth and Mikel San Jose are deemed ready to step up, this type of purchase will be necessary.
Alvaro Negredo (Almeria) – Liverpool need a striker; not necessarily another Fernando Torres, but someone who can step up when ‘El Nino’ is unavailable. Rafa hasn’t had a reliable stand-in since Peter Crouch left, so Negredo would be a solid option – provided his situation with Real Madrid is sorted in a neat and tidy manner.
Ashley Young (Aston Villa) – He’s English, which is a good start. He would repay his transfer fee in set pieces alone, an area in which Liverpool are curiously lacking. More gifted than Albert Riera and much quicker than Yossi Benayoun, the winger would essentially be a direct replacement for Ryan Babel (see ‘OUT’). (Goal.com)

Now I kind of agree with parts of what goal.com are trying to say. Three of these players work well to fill in some holes in the Liverpool squad and starting line-up. Kyle Naughton is a fresh talent who helps increase homegrown numbers in the team as the Premier League looks likely to adopt the ruling and he also helps fill the left back hole which hasn’t really been effectively filled. Bassong would also be a good signing also and would keep the centre backs on their toes and can also play in other positions.
Ashley Young would be an excellent signing but wouldn’t come cheap and provides the club with more natural width but I am not convinced a move for La Liga Man of the Moment Negredo would be a wise one.
