One main piece of news for this day, back in 2007, Javier Mascherano signed for the Reds from West Ham. The deal had been ratified by the Premier League on the 31st of January so during the Transfer Window but it had not completely gone through due to issues with the means West Ham purchased the Argentine. on the 20th of February 2007, the Argentine was added to the Premier League squad for the first time as a registered Liverpool player. Some say that Mascherano is a player who Liverpool have never truly replaced. A fantastic defensive midfielder who was later sold to Barcelona, Javier was part of a midfield unit that also consisted of Steven Gerrard and Xabi Alonso.
