Liverpool set to rival Tottenham Hotspur in race to secure deal for striker

With Liverpool struggling for offensive depth this season, this news has delighted the Liverpool fans in the Football Transfer Tavern…

It was a summer of change at Liverpool this year, with German boss Jurgen Klopp keen to add a slice of German engineering to his inherited Liverpool squad.

The Liverpool fans in the Tavern were calling for several high profile departures, and that is exactly what they got. Big money stars like Mario Balotelli and Christian Benteke departed the club as the summer transfer window came to a close, relieving the Anfield faithful of further disappointment in front of goal.

However, one Liverpool fan leaning against the bar has expressed a critical concern for the season ahead; he feels that Liverpool’s attacking departures have left Klopp’s men short up front.

The Reds are currently left with just Daniel Sturridge, Divock Origi and Danny Ings up front, with both Origi and Ings short on top-level Premier League experience.

It is certainly a dilemma for Klopp; and according to one report, it is a dilemma that he is looking to resolve.

According to the Sun, Liverpool are set to rival Tottenham in a move for River Plate striker Lucas Alario.

They report that the club are keen to land the forward, who has a reported £15.2 million release clause attached to his contract.

Interestingly, Liverpool have supposedly already had a previous bid rejected for the attacker; so could Klopp be ready to up his interest?

The player, who has a keen interest in playing in the Premier League in the future, also made his international debut this season after an impressive spell for River Plate.

As seen in the above table, courtesy of Whoscored.com, Alario was in fine form for River Plate last season, scoring an impressive 6 goals in just 11 starts. He has continued his form this year,  starting off with one goal from his first two appearances.

His average rating is consistently above 7.0, proving that he has the quality to make it at the highest level.

Liverpool fans – excited? Will you beat Tottenham to the deal?
