Flocking to Twitter, many Liverpool fans have gone wild over a transfer claim involving Real Sociedad striker Alexander Isak.
Jurgen Klopp’s side, having just suffered a 3-2 defeat to West Ham at the London Stadium before this international break, were perhaps reminded of their shortcomings in terms of depth.
Who should Liverpool sign in January?
Naby Keita, Curtis Jones, Harvey Elliott, James Milner, Joe Gomez and Roberto Firmino are all currently sidelined due to injury with the latter man in particular causing big concern.
Firmino, one of Liverpool’s only natural forward options, will be a big miss and Klopp can only turn to either Divock Origi or Diogo Jota as his senior stand-ins.
The Africa Cup of Nations also presents a hurdle as both Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane will be unavailable to compete for a period of time from January 9.
As a result, Liverpool, and by extension owners Fenway Sports Group, have reportedly set their sights on the transfer market as news emerges on Isak.
According to their sources, Liverpool are now weighing up a €40 million (£34.1m) offer to sign the Sweden international.
Flocking to this claim, many supporters have displayed real excitement given their desperation for a new forward option and some depth for Klopp – with one calling Isak a would-be ‘amazing signing’.
