Liverpool should look to prize Angel Correa to Anfield in January

Liverpool fans will be glad to see their summer signings make an excellent start to life at Anfield.

The Reds had to wait a year to see Naby Keita in action but will be pleased to see the former RB Leipzig man look great in his first two outings in the Premier League. New goalkeeper, Alisson Becker, was also called in action against Crystal Palace and Brighton, making some smart stops and showcasing his excellent distribution. Anfield will be hoping to see £40m-man Fabinho in action against Brighton at the weekend.

Liverpool look well-equipped to challenge Manchester City for the Premier League title, but an injury to Roberto Firmino could curtail their season. Daniel Sturridge has struggled for fitness in recent seasons with Dominic Solanke and Divock Origi both failing to find the back of the net consistently. Klopp should aim to sign another forward when the January transfer window reopens.

The ideal addition to the squad could be Atletico Madrid winger – Angel Correa. Valued at £21.6m by Transfermarkt, the Argentine was a key player for Diego Simeone last season, playing 37 times in La Liga, scoring eight and assisting four. Correa made a goalscoring start to the new campaign against Valencia but has just one-year remaining on his current contract.

With pace, excellent dribbling ability and a low centre of gravity, Correa is ideal for Klopp’s system at Anfield. The 23-year-old can play on either wing or as the central forward making him the perfect signing to add cover to multiple positions. Correa loves to beat his man, averaging 1.9 dribbles per game last season (WhoScored), and would add another dimension to the Liverpool attack.

The Reds could grab a bargain in January as Atletico will be unwilling to lose the Argentina international on a free. The youngster could follow in the footsteps of Fernando Torres and be a massive success on Merseyside.
