Are Liverpool on the hunt for more attacking players? The club should be happy with the players brought in, and there's still the matter of getting rid of Fabio Borini and Mario Balotelli. To put it bluntly, these players are simply unwanted by the manager and need to go for the possibility of registering meaningful minutes in 2015/16. Brendan Rodgers won't give them a chance, one that many believe that both no longer merit. If reports are to be believed, Merseyside's most illustrious and finest football club is set to sign another attacking player to join Danny Ings, Divock Origi, Christian Benteke, and Roberto Firmino at the club. Yes good people, defending doesn't matter.

Will Adama Traoré be the latest name to join Liverpool's quest to right the wrongs of last season? It appears all too certain from the first tweet, and there's also the matter of €15 million to send Barcelona's way to pick up this young talent. Traoré is only 19, but there are a lot of young players at the club looking for minutes to develop and possibly become the players Liverpool will need in the future.

There has been talk of a medical, but there will need to be more from journalists with links to the club before fans start believing another player will be signed. Traoré plays on the right, has played for Spanish youth teams, but has only featured for Barcelona's senior team once -- something that is to be expected. Let's see what happens with this one, but if he does move, maybe another player may have to leave either permanently or on loan.
