Introducing: The man Liverpool must sign in the coming days, Houssem Aouar

Jurgen Klopp has worked wonders ever since he took charge at Anfield, with this season looking like being his best yet if he manages to secure the Premier League title. 

The Reds currently find themselves leading Manchester City in the race for the title, with a win tonight moving them seven points clear of Pep Guardiola’s side.

Of course, the Merseyside club already have one of the most dangerous attacks in world football, but one thing that could take them to the next level would be to bring in a talented attacking midfielder.

So, with a limited amount of time left in the January transfer window, perhaps Liverpool’s title hopes will rest on whether Klopp manages to secure yet another impressive signing.

Interestingly, French newspaper L’Equipe (via Sport Witness) reported that Liverpool and Manchester City were leading the race to sign Lyon’s Houssem Aouar back at the end of November.

Sadly, it doesn’t look as if things have developed since then but a late move could still be possible.

Liverpool were believed (as per Ajansspor) to have agreed a deal to sign Abdulkadir Omur recently, but according to the Liverpool Echo, the Reds have denied the rumours. And, according to Italian journalist Nicolo Schira’s personal Twitter account, Liverpool have opened talks for Sandro Tonali.

But, the Reds shouldn’t even waste their time thinking about either player, as Aouar is levels above both of them.

The Reds still haven’t managed to replace Phillippe Coutinho since he left to join Barcelona. But, they may just have found the perfect replacement, as Houssem Aouar has been dubbed the next Coutinho (as per the Daily Star). His fantastic technical ability, creativity and eagle eye for goal makes him a very similar player to the Brazilian, so it would feel as if the Reds have got their golden boy back if FSG seal a move for him.

He currently has six goals and four assists to his name, which includes three assists in the Champions League. And, he was one of the standout performers during Lyon’s 2-1 victory over Manchester City back in September.

Klopp currently has one of the strongest attacks in world football at this disposal, but deploying Aouar in behind the front three would take them to the next level as he already has the ability to terrorize almost any defence at the age of 20, with the potential to develop into a superstar in the future.
