“Raphinha has been linked with Liverpool this week and I feel he’s an impressive player. He has solely just entered the Premier League so the truth that he has hit the ground operating is a big benefit. He has quite a lot of skill and quite a lot of talent.
“I do not wish to disrespect Leeds however in fact may play for a big six membership. He may simply match right into a team like that. I feel Liverpool want a player who can change the best way they play slightly bit.
“I used to be watching Bayern Munich against Borussia Dortmund the day earlier than. That they had Leroy Sane on one side, Kingsley Coman the opposite side, then they introduced forward Serge Gnabry and they’ve Douglas Costa.
“To allow them to change the best way they play fairly simply by throwing a few wingers forward and I feel that is how Liverpool seem like they want it proper now.
“They’ve [Mohamed] Salah, [Sadio] Mane, [Roberto] Firmino, or [Diogo] Jota comes with the width from the left or proper back. I feel that may be a bit unfair generally, as you may’t expect the left or proper back up and down the field so many instances. ”
