Liverpool were one of the many clubs to miss out on Erling Haaland during the January transfer window.
It seems that all of the biggest sides in Europe were desperate to take him to their respective clubs – after all, he had scored 28 goals in 22 games for RB Salzburg, including eight in the Champions League group stages alone, despite being just 19 years of age.
The Reds even saw his ability first hand, with him scoring against them, and they were linked with a move for him. Unfortunately for them, though, he would end up making the switch to Borussia Dortmund in the Bundesliga – they paid €20m (£17.1m) for his services, with him now said to be worth £64.8m by Transfermarkt.
Would you like to sign Erling Haaland?
Since then, he has flourished, scoring 12 goals in his first 11 games for the German club. However, despite him only just signing for Die Schwarzgelben, his former coach in Norway, Alf Ingve Berntsen, has said he should move to Liverpool.
As you can imagine, this has the club’s supporters talking, and they have taken to Twitter to share their thoughts. You can see some of the best comments from the social media platform below.
He should since Arnifield is the home of champions. @LFC should consider this boy and forget about Timo Waner

I’ve always said his former coach in Norway knows his stuff. Been a big fan from day 1.
