6 Players Liverpool Almost Signed

By Matt Ladson of thisisanfield.com

Liverpool FC have made some tremendous signings in their illustrious history – bargains such as Kevin Keegan – who signed from Scunthorpe for just £35k and went on to win the Ballon d’Or, or Sami Hyypia who cost £2.6m from Willem and went on to win every trophy except the Premier League during a 300 + appearance career at Anfield.
