Wolves will lose their star to Liverpool – can they still survive?

Liverpool have started the season well and could be real title challengers again as Jurgen Klopp has breathed new life into his team with the impact of Roberto Firmino, Sadio Mane and Mohammed Salah for another generation.

However, he is ready to make another signing to take Liverpool in the right direction and this winger is ready to move straight from Wolves to the Liverpool team.
Wolves star Pedro Neto moves to Liverpool

Wolverhampton Wanderers’ Pedro Neto has completely failed under Gary O’Neil and the 23-year-old shows no signs of slowing down as he attempts to help his side climb out of the relegation zone.

While Wolves got off to a rocky start after the loss of coach Julen Lopetegui, Neto took it upon himself to help Wolves through the rough start by providing five assists and a goal.

It’s no wonder he’s been heavily linked with Liverpool and other Premier League clubs, as it’s clear he’s a level above Wolves’ current level.

What would Neto bring to the Liverpool team?
Neto is a direct winger who uses his pace to attack the full-back and pass him with effortless ease.

As has been demonstrated this year, his assist total is high, and that’s because his crossing ability rivals some of the best players in the league.

Liverpool could count on players such as Luis Diaz, Cody Gakpo, Darwin Nunez, Diogo Jota and Salah, all capable of playing in the front row for the Merseyside club.

However, adding Neto to that front line could be devastating for opposition parties; not that Liverpool aren’t already, especially after their 7-0 defeat to Manchester United last season.

Neto could replace Salah, who is still linked with a Saudi move, but he would certainly be a long-term replacement.

The boss says something ‘not normal’ is now happening with the £50million Liverpool star

Liverpool striker Luis Diaz simply has too much pressure on his shoulders at the moment.
After an electrifying start to the season, Diaz has fallen a little in love with Liverpool as of late.

He recently had a lovely goal disallowed against Tottenham Hotspur, but since that goal was disallowed, the 26-year-old has failed to find the net in six league games.

However, three goals in ten games in all competitions is not a bad result. And speaking to Colombian AS, Diaz’s national team manager Nestor Lorenzo said the £50 million man is under a little too much pressure to score. 

“The first thing we did was tell him [Diaz] not to put the team on his shoulders, nor that the responsibility of the team should weigh on him,” says Lorenzo.

“People expect him to score four goals a game and that’s not normal.
“His performance was good and we hope he improves through training and getting to know his teammates.

“In football you need couples and in two [international breaks] he got injured and missed the matches that would have given him a little more rapprochement.

But we have faith in him, in his position and in his role. We don’t want him to be the savior either.

“I realize he played badly when he doesn’t score two goals, and that’s not the case. At Liverpool he plays every three days and here every month.

With James Rodriguez now in his thirties, Diaz is the most important man in Colombian football. Expectations are therefore high for him every time his national team plays.

Just like Mohamed Salah in Egypt or Sadio Mané in Senegal before him, it is up to a Liverpool striker to move his team forward.

So far, you would have to say that Diaz hasn’t had the same success as Salah or Mane.

41 appearances have yielded just nine goals and it’s fair to say there’s plenty more to come from the former Porto man.

The same certainly applies to his career at Liverpool. Nobody expects Diaz to score two or four in every game, but he could do it with a little more performance.

After a great start 18 months ago, his record now stands at 14 goals in 56 appearances for the Reds.

That’s not bad, especially considering last season’s injury, but it could also be a lot better.

Diaz is no longer a young player and he really needs to express his potential. Like Lorenzo, we have no doubt that he will do so, but the pressure will remain until more consistency is found.
