Ever since the news broke over the sale of Luis Suarez to Barcelona for £75 million many Liverpool fans have been expecting a big name replacement to arrive at Anfield to fill the void left by the clubs leading scorer.

Names already being talked about include Paris Saint-Germain striker Edinson Cavani and Borussia Dortmund’s Marco Reus both of whom would cost at least £50 million.

Here at Soccer Transfers we think that former Liverpool player John Barnes has the right idea when he says that Liverpool do not have to bring in the household names, but continue to buy diligently bringing in young hungry players such as he has already done with Emre Can and Lazar Markovic.

“A lot of people may not have heard of them, very much like Philippe Coutinho, but we don’t necessarily need to buy superstar players,” said the Liverpool legend, speaking on the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast.

“Certain clubs, like Man City and Chelsea, need to sign big superstar players, whereas Brendan Rodgers can fit players into his philosophy and his method. They might be players we haven’t heard of and are left thinking, ‘well why is he signing him because he is not a household name’. I am happy with that.”
