Wrexham chief names two 'dream' signings for the club including Jurgen Klopp's Liverpool 'machine'

Wrexham chief names two 'dream' signings for the club including Jurgen Klopp's Liverpool 'machine'

Wrexham chief Humphrey Ker spoke to SPORTbible about his dream signings for the club.

Wrexham executive director Humphrey Ker has named two dream signings for the club.

Earlier in the month, the Red Dragons sealed back-to-back promotions after beating Forest Green Rovers.

Goals from Elliot Lee, Paul Mullin, Ryan Barnett, Jack Marriott and an own goal by Ryan Inniss sealed a 6-0 victory for Phil Parkinson’s side.

Looking ahead to the summer transfer window, Wrexham have already been linked with a host of different players as they prepare for life in League One.

Speaking exclusively to SPORTbible, Wrexham executive director Ker was asked who his dream signing would be for the club.

He said: “So in the past, I've been asked this question I've often cited sort of a Neco Williams as one, you know, he's from the area, he's a Premier League quality right back, play for Wales. The day we are signing players like that will be a sign of how far we've come.


“In terms of who's one of my favourite players and who would I love to see playing in a Wrexham shirt? At present, I've got a real soft spot for Wataru Endo. Who is kind of a perfect encapsulation of the fury in the summer when Liverpool missed out on Caicedo and Lavia and it was all doom and gloom and disaster.

“And then they sign Wataru Endo and it was like ‘well, who's this guy? I've never heard of him’ he was only 16 million quid, what are they playing at? And then he's been one of the signings of the season.”

Ker added: “I think there's a good lesson there for all of us in terms of, you know, the glitz and the glamour and the big price tags and ‘what are Liverpool doing not spending 100 million on a central midfielder’.

“It's like, you don't need to spend 100 million, you need to spend your money wisely, you've got to find and identify the best players. I don't know Wataru Endo from Adam but you can see he's got fantastic character. He's got a fantastic work ethic, you see in the interactions, the pictures and the other players, they clearly all really like him and he's done an unbelievable job there. So yeah, if money is no object and the player does not particularly mind about moving to North Wales. I'm a big fan of his.”


Since joining Liverpool in the summer, Endo has been described as a machine by manager Jurgen Klopp, who said back in February: “I'm pretty sure in three [or] four years Wataru will sign another long-term contract at Liverpool just because he might be 30 or 31 on his passport but he's not. He's a machine. He is footballing-wise exceptional. His defensive brain is outstanding. He gives us a lot of freedom for a lot of things. Yeah, top development. Very helpful, very helpful.”

Welcome to Wrexham season 3 will launch on Friday, May 3 only on Disney+ in the UK. The launch of the eight-episode season will include the first two episodes, followed by a new episode each week.
