Liverpool target swoop for highly-rated striker

Breel EmboloLiverpool fans in the Transfer Tavern enjoying a cup of mulled wine have expressed their surprise after links suggested another striker could arrive at Anfield.

The Reds have signed a wealth of forwards in recent years, with Divock Origi, Danny Ings and Christian Benteke all arriving on Merseyside over the summer.

However, it seems that isn’t enough to satisfy Jurgen Klopp as CalcioMercato state the Reds are eying a swoop for FC Basel’s young striking sensation Breel Embolo.

The 18-year-old Swiss teenager, who is also a target for Manchester United, would signify an exciting addition for the Reds that could lead Liverpool to further success later down the line.

Embolo is also extremely capable currently and would provide an immediate boost to the Reds attack, which has struggled this campaign with Ings out until the end of the season and Daniel Sturridge suffering a wealth of injury concerns.

Our fans are concerned though as they aren’t convinced Embolo would be a better option to young Divock Origi, who was the hero at the weekend with a last-gasp goal to snatch a point off West Brom.

Liverpool fans, do you really need another striker? Let us know in the comments below!
