Liverpool’s director of football Damien Comolli says a transfer target's experience in the Barclays Premier League is of the upmost importance, as the club decide who will be wearing the red jersey next season.

When asked if Liverpool were targeting English players, Comolli said that the experience of English football was more the direction the club were heading in with new signings.

“It's not because a player is English and young that we are going to go for him,” Comolli told the official Liverpool website.


“We go for a player because he ticks all the boxes. It's what we need at this time in this window.

“If a player is English or British or has played in the Premier League we'll look at that over someone who is abroad, but it could be any nationality as long as they tick the boxes and is what we need for this window and going forward.”

Liverpool haven’t been a club to show their cards early in the transfer window very often, however Comolli said using the 'first in best dressed' strategy this time around would hopefully give the Merseyside club an edge over their rivals.

“That's the way I personally like to work,” Comolli said, in regards to snapping up talent quickly.

“The earlier the better, because we can then readjust our strategy or decide we aren't going to do any more - which won't be the case now!”
