Liverpool transfers: Reds in with a chance of signing Neymar from Barcelona?

Former Premier League star makes shock statement about possible Liverpool transfers.

Liverpool transfers may not have been the most inspiring recently, but former Wigan and Hull City midfielder Jimmy Bullard believes the Reds could have signed Neymar as a replacement for Luis Suarez.

The Reds let their star player Suarez leave for the Nou Camp last summer for a fee of around £75m, but Bullard suggests that the club may have been in with a chance of landing Brazilian forward Neymar as part of the deal.

“They got rid of top quality and they haven’t got that back,” he is quoted in the Daily Express.

“With the likes of Suarez going and not getting world quality, for me as a fan I want to see a world-class striker join.

“I wanted to see a Neymar or someone to replace Suarez. They took a risk with signing Danny Ings from Burnley.”

Could Liverpool really have had any hope of attracting a player of Neymar’s quality to Anfield in recent times?
