Liverpool might want to start thinking about signing at least one new striker in January.
Not because Darwin Nunez is rubbish, which he isn’t, but because they desperately need added reinforcements.
The Uruguay international did struggle in a big way during Liverpool’s Carabao Cup defeat by Manchester City on Thursday.
And with Roberto Firmino joining Luis Diaz and Diogo Jota on the sidelines, well Mohamed Salah is now the Reds’ only real source of goals – and even he has been off the boil this season.
According to Calciomercatoweb, Dusan Vlahovic of Juventus is on the radar and honestly, Liverpool should go all out for him.
Of course, the Reds are meant to be saving for Jude Bellingham and although Jurgen Klopp needs midfielders too, he has enough of them to get the team through until next summer.
He doesn’t, however, have enough firepower up front, given that Diaz and Jota are both out until March.
Vlahovic, a £66 million signing by Juve last January [Sky Sports], is willing to leave the Serie A outfit [The Times] and Klopp should definitely make a move.
Yes, it’s a lot of money when you’ve already spent £85 million on a striker in the form of Nunez.
But although he’s primarily a number nine, the South American can also play out on the left, leaving room for someone new to go through the middle.
At this time of the year, there’s a lot of fantasy football going on surrounding transfers, but Liverpool absolutely need another number nine and with Vlahovic willing to leave Juventus, why not?
