Many Liverpool fans will agree that their side have lacked a creative spark in recent times, with Philippe Coutinho’s departure now starting to be felt at Anfield.
Although, the Reds appear to have their eye on one player in particular who could definitely go a long way towards filling the void left by the Brazilian, as according to Bleacher Report, Hakim Ziyech is on Liverpool’s watch list.
Of course, Liverpool fans would have heard news of Real Madrid being knocked out of the Champions League recently, but what they may not have seen is just how influential Ziyech was in knocking the Spanish giants out of the competition as he constantly caused problems and grabbed two goals over the two legs.
The Morocco international has been in sublime form this season having produced a whopping 18 goals and 15 assists in all competitions. And, he’s enjoying a rich vein of form at this moment in time, having scored three goals and produced two assists in his last three games in all competitions.
It’s safe to say that he’s as close as Liverpool will get to replacing Philippe Coutinho as a ready-made replacement who already has the creative and goalscoring attributes that made the Brazilian a hero at Anfield.
Ziyech can pick defence-splitting passes and regularly finds the back of the net from long range, so he could definitely provide plenty of excitement at Anfield and could cure their lack of creativity in attacking areas.
Liverpool fans, do you think Ziyech can replace Coutinho at Anfield? Surely his performances have been too good to ignore this season…
