Liverpool fans may just be believing that, yet again, this could be their year after a favourable Champions League draw against Porto and their most recent win against Fulham saw them rise back into pole position in the title race, for now at least.
The Reds may feel aggrieved because normally when a side have lost just once in the league all season, they would be dead cert favourites for the title, however unfortunately with Manchester City hot in pursuit, that hasn’t been the case.
For all the improvements Liverpool have made to their team from last season until now, as of yet, they have nothing to show for it and if the Premier League title again evades their reach, disappointment will be greater than ever.
Now unfortunately for Liverpool fans, no one can tell the future and so their title ambitions still hang in the balance. Though next season, they can get ahead of the competition by employing another clinical finisher in the form of Sporting Lisbon’s Bas Dost.
Dost, (who is valued at £18 million on Transfermarkt) would be a top signing for the Reds and a sign of their commitment to keep improving. Of course, fans would love to see FSG splash the cash after a silent January transfer window and the Dutchman may just be the best man for the club’s owners to spend their money on.
Although 29-years-old, Bas Dost theoretically still has plenty of time to assert himself as a top finisher for Liverpool and if he continues scoring at a rate of 21 goals in 31 games, like he has this season, the Reds faithful would surely welcome him with open arms.
Roberto Firmino has gone off the boil at times this season and although still a menace for defenders to contain, goals have not been as easy to come by for him.
Dost – who the club may have been linked with by TEAMtalk over the summer as the Reds looked on at events in Lisbon over the summer – however, has spent the last few seasons scoring goals for fun and that is a trend Liverpool would be desperate for him to continue if he agreed on a move to Anfield.
Would Bas Dost be a good back-up option for Liverpool? Join the discussion by commenting below…
