Liverpool Linked With Serie A Playmaker – Player Report

Liverpool have been packed with small, creative players since Brendan Rodgers took over and it could be set to continue, as talkSPORT are reporting the Reds with a move for Lazio playmaker Hernanes. Although it’s likely that you will have heard of him, you may not know what he is about. So, we at Football Friends have had a closer look.

The nimble playmaker is a central player who looks to drift in behind defences but is at his best when he has the ball at his feet, facing goal, with players running off him.

The Lazio midfielder has very quick feet and is effective when charging towards people which would tie in nicely with the likes of Philippe Coutinho and Luis Suarez, and he also has a passing range which could compliment Steven Gerrard’s.

He also willing to chip in with defensive contributions, too as his intelligence when it comes to positioning is something that not many players can match.

The 28-year-old isn’t a player who you would want running onto a ball that dropped on the edge of the box, if you were a defender, as he has a lethal strike on him.

Overall, I would say it would be a good bit of business for Liverpool, as he would also provide some experience for the younger players to bounce off.
