Grzegorz Krychowiak: Links up again with Unai Emery

Liverpool will have to move onto other midfield targets after Grzegorz Krychowiak joined manager Unai Emery in leaving Sevilla for PSG.

Krychowiak began his career in Ligue One with Bordeaux and, after winning three consecutive Europa League titles, he is looking forward to a new challenge.

“It’s a feeling of great pride that drives me to return to France to wear the jersey of a club as ambitious as Paris SG,” said Krychowiak.

“To continue working with Unai Emery obviously played a part in my choice. I’m coming to Paris to experience strong emotions and to win as many trophies as possible.”

PSG president Nasser Al-Khelaifi also expressed his delight with the signing.

“These past two seasons, he was very efficient with Sevilla, in particular on the European scene, and he was one of the most prominent players in the Euro (2016),” Al-Khelaifi said.

“Grzegorz embodies the values of discipline and combativeness that are dear to our club, our fans and our new coach with whom he wanted to continue working.”

One name being mentioned by the press as another Liverpool is Axel Witsel, who looks set to leave Zenit St Petersburg this summer.

    We need a DM in the class of Krychowiak. With a top class DM, we will have the luxury of playing a diamond 442 with 2 strikers up front. Emre Can does not have the passion to be a top class DM, we need players like Kante or Matic etc.

    Sturridge has already lost his pace, playing him as a lone striker is not enough to break down the parking buses. With a diamond 442, we can partner Sturridge with Origi or Mane. Then, we can attack the parking bus by pace, technical skill and aerial power.

    When facing bigger teams or in most of the away games, we can return to 433. A midfield 3 with Krychowiak class DM, Can and Henderson or Milner will be very reliable in defense and work rate. Offering full license for the front 3 to attack.

    Although we failed to get Krychowiak, we still need to try our best to get a top class DM.
