Liverpool see attacking reinforcements as a priority in the summer transfer window, according to reliable journalist Fabrizio Romano.
The Lowdown: Big summer at Liverpool
The Reds had a disappointing season but managed to salvage it by finishing third in the Premier League and qualifying for the Champions League in 2021/22.
The injury hit campaign suggests new signings will be needed in order for Jurgen Klopp’s men to challenge Manchester City again however, on top of latest addition Ibrahima Konate.
The Latest: Romano provides key update
Speaking on Twitch on Monday [via Football Transfers on Twitter], Romano claimed that “signing attackers are the priority for Liverpool” this summer, seven words which are sure to be music to the ears of the Anfield faithful.
He added that the Reds are “thinking of signing wingers first because they will lose both Salah and Mane for AFCON” during the middle of next season.
The Verdict: Encouraging news
This is an encouraging update from Romano, even though on the face of it Liverpool are currently well-stocked in attacking areas.
Assuming the Africa Cup of Nations goes ahead, losing Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane would leave a gaping void in wide areas, with someone like youngster Harvey Elliott possibly having to fill in.
It is, therefore, vital that at least one winger is brought in to alleviate that issue, with someone like Donyell Malen looking an exciting option from PSV Eindhoven, having scored 19 goals in the Eredivisie last season.
