Jurgen Klopp needs to look towards the summer transfer window, as well as focusing on his side’s pursuit of silverware this season, as there’re a number of areas that could do with improving.
The German has brought Liverpool supporters’ wildest dreams to life in the current campaign as they remain in the race for the Premier League title and Champions League glory.
But, fans will agree that the likes of Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane are in desperate need of a creative midfielder just behind them, as they’ve been short on service at times in key games.
Of course, Philippe Coutinho’s departure last year didn’t help but his absence hasn’t been too evident up until recently in the Premier League.
Much to the delight of Liverpool fans, Klopp may have the chance to sign a potential replacement for the Brazilian.
According to the Mirror, Henrikh Mkhitaryan’s future is in doubt as Unai Emery is keen on offloading the midfielder.
The Armenia international once played under Jurgen Klopp at Borussia Dortmund and it’s safe to say that he’s a big fan of the Arsenal man, as he labelled him as ‘rare ‘ back in 2017 in a press conference (as per Independent).
“He combines technical ability and tempo. It is rare,”
And, the Daily Mail reported back in 2017 that Liverpool almost signed Henrikh Mkhitaryan in 2013, so the Reds may finally be interested in landing their man.
FSG simply must look to bring the attacking midfielder to the club in the summer as he could be available on the cheap if Arsenal are looking to get rid of him, and Klopp managed to get the very best out of him during their time in Germany so he could get him back to his best at Anfield.
He’s quick, incredible with the ball at his feet and he’s shown that he can score goals and provide assists in the Premier League, so the Reds wouldn’t have to worry about him settling down in the top-flight.
Liverpool fans, do you think Mkhitaryan is good enough to replace Coutinho? Join the discussion by commenting down below!
