The January transfer window is now closed with Jurgen Klopp opting to not make a single signing at Liverpool.
The Reds failed to move seven points clear of Manchester City at the top of the table after lumbering to a draw at home against Leicester. Although the Citizens have a difficult run of fixtures in the coming weeks, the title race looks set to go down to the wire. Nevertheless, Klopp believes in his current squad of players to end Liverpool’s 29 year wait for a league crown.
Having not spent in January, the German is surely again expected to strengthen his squad heavily when the window reopens in the summer. Klopp should have a significant budget available to him as well as funds generated through sales. One area the Reds should look to strengthen is their attack.
One man who could be a wonderful addition to the team is Napoli hitman – Arkadiusz Milik. Valued at £22.5m by Transfermarkt, the 24-year-old has been a regular goal scorer in the Serie A since leaving Ajax in 2016. The Poland international remains a key player at the club after finally recovering from a long-term injury.
Milik has been quick to make up for lost time in the current campaign, flourishing under Carlo Ancelotti’s leadership. The forward has found the back of the net 11 times in just 13 Serie A starts this season highlighting his deadly finishing ability. Adding his attacking qualities to a forward line consisting of Roberto Firmino, Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane would be devastating.
Milik excels at leading the line meaning he would slot seamlessly into Klopp’s favoured 4-2-3-1 formation – his arrival would also allow Salah to switch to his favoured right wing role.
