Liverpool will be focused on securing at least one piece of silverware in the current campaign as they’re in with a great chance of pipping Manchester City to the Premier League title and have the opportunity to go one better in the Champions League.
Jurgen Klopp has worked wonders on the transfer front and with the players at his disposal since taking charge at Liverpool, which has helped the Reds challenge for silverware in recent times.
Interestingly, it appears as if the Merseyside club have the perfect opportunity to sign a player, as according to Le10 Sport (via Teamtalk), Liverpool have reportedly been given the clear run to sign Malcom.
Sadly, the Brazilian, who is valued at £36 million (by Transfermarkt), has completely flopped since moving to Barcelona as he’s found it extremely difficult to work his way into Ernesto Valverde’s plans, and he hasn’t exactly looked particularly impressive during his time on the field.
However, the Brazilian showed plenty of promise during his time at Bordeaux as he managed to notch 12 goals and produced eight assists. There’s no doubt that he has all the ingredients to become a world-class player but he just hasn’t been provided with enough opportunities in Spain.
Jurgen Klopp has been able to transform a number of quality players into world-class stars at Anfield, including the likes of Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah, with Andy Robertson not being far off.
There’s no doubt that the German boss can transform the Brazilian into a world-class player as he’s technically gifted and has the ability to perform at the highest level, so FSG simply must seal a summer deal for the winger.
The one thing that has stopped him from reaching his full potential is his self-confidence after a tough start to life at Barcelona, which is something that Klopp can easily sort as he’ll welcome him with open arms as a big admirer of the Brazilian, and he’ll be well aware of his potential.
The winger would fit into Liverpool’s system perfectly as he loves to get on the ball and looks to use his pace, and his ability to create and score goals would make their attack even stronger.
