A number of Liverpool fans have been bemoaning a report which claimed that Liverpool are interested in signing Joaquin Correa this summer.
Jurgen Klopp may feel that his attack needs freshening up ahead of next season following a number of struggles in that area in 2020/21. Liverpool simply haven’t clicked in the final third like they have in recent years, with poor finishing too often letting them down, as was the case against Real Madrid last week.
Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino have been particularly culpable, enduring tough campaigns for the Reds – they have scored just 13 Premier League goals between them – but Mohamed Salah and Diogo Jota haven’t been completely blameless either.
Liverpool fans don’t want to sign Correa
Some Reds supporters don’t like the sound of him moving to Anfield, however, taking to Twitter to explain why.
“No thank you“
“Get Mauro Icardi instead. We need a finisher“
“No just another Firmino, need an actual clinical striker“
“A striker with 4 league goals this season is not what we need“
“He’s 27 in Aug. Doubt LFC are paying big money for a 27yr old, at a time when they are in process of getting younger players to succeed Mane, Firmino & Salah.“
“<50 career goals in 273 apps. Sounds like an ideal Firmino replacement“
