Liverpool are reportedly interested in signing Fiorentina striker Dusan Vlahovic this summer, along with a host of other clubs.
While much of the focus has been on the Reds’ defensive struggles this season, mainly due to injuries, their attack has also been a big problem. Mohamed Salah has done his best, scoring 28 goals, and Diogo Jota has been an excellent signing, but Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino have looked shadows of their former selves.
Jurgen Klopp may feel the need to add more competition for places in attacking areas this summer, with a fresh report suggesting that this may be the case.

Vlahovic would represent a long-term signing for Liverpool, perhaps coming in as a squad player initially before maturing under the tutelage of Klopp. He has won an impressive 2.7 aerial duels per game in the league this season, compared to Firmino’s 0.6, suggesting that he could offer something different to the Reds’ attack.
It is crucial that Klopp starts to look towards the future, making sure that his squad don’t grow old together without having sufficient replacements.
Vlahovic could be someone to take the team forward in the next few years, as well as being an immediate option if there is a need to call upon him.
In other news, Liverpool reportedly want to sign a player who was once valued at £108m. Find out who it is here.
