‘He could play for anyone’ – Man Utd legend Gary Neville tells Liverpool to snap-up ‘out of this world’ free transfer

GARY NEVILLE has urged Liverpool to snap-up one particular “out of this world” free agent this summer.

Jurgen Klopp’s side are preparing to face Real Madrid in the Champions League final after narrowly missing out on the Premier League title to Manchester City.

Gary Neville has told Liverpool to go out and sign this ‘out of this world’ free agent

Despite their season still being alive the Reds have already been active in the transfer market.

Liverpool have confirmed the signing of Fabio Carvalho from Fulham on a deal until 2027.

The Reds missed out on the 19-year-old’s signature in the winter transfer window after failing to complete the paperwork before the deadline.

But the Merseyside outfit remained desperate to snap up the Portugal and England youth international and managed to agree a deal to sign him in April which is believed to be worth £5million with a potential £3m more in add-ons.

Now they’ve been urged to go and sign Christian Eriksen in another bargain move.

The 30-year-old Danish playmaker, who suffered a terrifying heart attack at last summer’s Euros, was taken on by Brentford in January on a free transfer until the end of the season.

However, after proving his fitness and producing some sizzling form, Eriksen now has at least three Premier League clubs interested in signing him this summer now he is out of contract.

Neville believes that the ex-Tottenham man could play a “Xherdan Shaqiri role” and be a perfect back-up to Thiago Alcantara at Anfield.

Speaking on The Overlap Fan Debate, he explained: “I think Eriksen will get plucked by a big club. He might show loyalty, to be fair, because of what Brentford have done for him.

“I tell you what, if you were any top-six club that were looking at a midfield three and you wanted a player to go in there and play 30 games for you in a squad-type [situation], you’d [take him].

“He could play for Manchester City, he could play for Liverpool, he could play for any of the top six.

“I’m not saying starting every week, but he could come on. Look at what Shaqiri was doing at Liverpool for two or three years there.

“If Liverpool are looking for a midfield player to come on for, say, Thiago – who gets injured a little bit – why would you not look at Eriksen?

“Why would you not look to him to come in for two seasons and do a job for you doing that? He’s brilliant. He’s a brilliant pro, he’s a great player, his quality on the ball is unbelievable.

“To be fair, Brentford played out here [at Old Trafford], it was one of the games United won, but some of Eriksen’s passing in that game was out of this world at Old Trafford.

“I just thought of it then, but Liverpool do need midfield players, they do need people with quality to feed them strikers and to be fair, why wouldn’t you [sign Eriksen]? They did that with Shaqiri.”

However, fellow pundit and Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher added: “I like the fact he’s there. I know he could go to a bigger club but it’s like he is Brentford, he’s almost become Brentford alongside the manager [Thomas Frank]. I’d like him to stay.”
