Sergio Aguero has been linked with a number of leading Premier League clubs this summer; including title holders, Chelsea. We wonder how many fans were aware of his fondness for Liverpool though, or his stated wish to play for the Reds, when the Manchester City striker was establishing his reputation at Argentinian club, Independiente?
Aguero; then a highly promising teenager with links to Bayern Munich, Real Madrid and Barcelona, was quoted as follows, per this article on Sky Sports in 2005:-
“I have been a Liverpool fan for as long as I can remember and it would be a dream to play there.”
While a lot of water has passed under the bridge since Aguero made this statement, there is absolutely no doubting the potency that the little Argentinian would bring to Jurgen Klopp’s front line.
He would thrive on the service offered by Coutinho, Mane, Lallana and co, and would be very likely to provide the 20 to 25 goals per season that the Reds will need to mount a serious title charge in the season ahead.
Until we learn otherwise, we’re prepared to remain open to this transfer happening here at FantasySports.co.uk. We think this could be a great tie up for both parties and we’d love to see it happen.
