Liverpool managed to hold off European giants PSG at Anfield in their opening Champions League tie after a thrilling game that saw Roberto Firmino bag a late winner.
The Reds made it six wins from six in all competitions with a hard-fought 2-1 victory over Tottenham at the weekend. Georginio Wijnaldum opened the scoring from a corner with Firmino stabbing home Liverpool’s second after the interval. The Brazilian was later substituted and taken to hospital after Jan Vertonghen poked him in the eye during a tussle for the ball.
Despite being discharged and ultimately proving decisive, the Brazilian could do with some back-up. Granted, Daniel Sturridge took his chance very well indeed, though the England international remains a mystery as to how long he can be relied upon, fitness wise.
So, attack is an area that Klopp should be looking to strengthen during the summer window and should be keeping tabs on Genoa forward – Krzysztof Piatek. Valued at just £3.6m by Transfermarkt, the Pole joined his current side this summer after boasting an impressive scoring record in his homeland. Piatek made a perfect start to life in the Serie A, scoring four goals in his opening three appearances.
His excellent showings earned him a place in the Poland national team alongside Robert Lewandowski and reports suggested Barcelona are keeping a close eye on his development in Italy. Should he continue scoring regularly, Liverpool should also be lining up a January move.
Piatek would the perfect back up to Firmino with Origi and Solanke struggling to score in recent seasons.
