Liverpool sporting director possibility emerges as Luis Suarez pays tribute to Lucas Leiva

Your morning Liverpool digest for Monday 20th March.

Liverpool have the chance to sign a sporting director who could be the perfect option for FSG

Many football fans are obsessed with transfers and the notion that spending huge sums – ‘winning’ the transfer window – is the fast track to stardom. But the list of the most expensive signings of all time shows that a high price does not guarantee success, either at the individual or team level.

Getting the most out of a transfer is extremely difficult, regardless of the cost. It won’t set hearts racing or win hoax wars on social media, but appointing the right person to oversee the transfer process is arguably more important to a club than signing.

Liverpool have proved this theory better than most, with former sporting director Michael Edwards’ work being so successful that fans joke about building a statue of him outside Anfield. His successor Julian Ward oversaw the signings of Luis Diaz and Darwin Nunez but will leave the club this summer. Ward is now said to be the favorite for a similar role at Ajax but who will replace him at Liverpool?

Football Insider has claimed it could be Tim Steidten, a 43-year-old former defensive midfielder who was sporting director at Bayer Leverkusen but left by mutual consent earlier this week. Steidten has been heavily linked with a move to Chelsea following Todd Boehly’s purchase of the club last year, while Manchester United and Tottenham, as well as Liverpool, are now reportedly considering taking his services.
