Former Liverpool FC striker, John Aldridge, believes the Reds have an ideal replacement for Raheem Sterling in Anglo- Nigerian, Jordon Ibe.
John Aldridge suggested that this is the right time for the Merseysiders to cash in on Sterling with reports rife that the England international is set to leave Anfield this summer.
The former Liverpool striker, Aldridge, suggested a perfect replacement in Ibe who has enjoyed first team action this season having recorded 10 appearances in the Premier League for Liverpool, starting six of those games.
“It’s a very tough dilemma. What’s best for the club? If Raheem really wants to leave the club, then my opinion is that you get what you can for him now if he doesn’t want to play for Liverpool Football Club.
“It’s not ideal with Steven Gerrard leaving at the same time but if we get £40m we’ve got an ideal replacement for Raheem’s position in Jordon Ibe,” Aldridge told the Liverpool Echo. “From where we are I’d be surprised if he stayed but I’d love to be proved wrong.”
