Liverpool would be title contenders with Alexis Sanchez, says ex-Red
Stan Collymore says Liverpool must rue not signing Alexis Sanchez
Liverpool would be challenging for the title if they had signed Alexis Sanchez in the summer, according to Stan Collymore.
The Reds missed out on a deal to snap up the Chile international, who moved to Arsenal in a £35m deal from Barcelona in July
I honestly believe had they signed Alexis, they’d be challenging for the title
Liverpool have made a disappointing start to the season despite signing nine players after Luis Suarez joined the Catalan side in a £75m switch.
And former Reds striker reckons Liverpool are kicking themselves after Sanchez scored his ninth league goal of the season against Southampton.
“I know for a fact Liverpool were interested in Alexis Sanchez this summer, but instead they decided to spread their money over a number of other deals,” Collymore wrote in his Bleacher Report column.
“Alexis went to Arsenal, and the rest is history—he’s scoring goals, playing at a high tempo and has taken to the Premier League like a duck to water.
“Liverpool missed out on the closest thing they could have got to Luis Suarez. I honestly believe had they signed Alexis, they’d be challenging for the title, and the good times would still be rolling at Anfield.
“Liverpool fans must be kicking themselves.”
