Munir would only add to the Liverpool attack in the New Year

Liverpool have won their opening three fixtures in the Premier League for the first time since 2014.

Jurgen Klopp has made a perfect start to the new campaign, guiding his side to victories over West Ham, Crystal Palace and Brighton. The Reds currently sit top of the Premier League table on goal difference and are yet to concede a goal this season. Klopp will be hoping their form continues against Leicester on Saturday.

The German will be pleased to see his new signings settling in well to life on Merseyside with Naby Keita bossing the midfield so far and Alisson Becker looking assured against the Seagulls. Liverpool still have Fabinho to welcome into the side and the threat of Xherdan Shaqiri from the bench. Klopp will not be afraid to strengthen his squad further when the window reopens in January.

One player he could target is Barcelona forward – Munir El Haddadi. Valued at £10.8m by Transfermarkt, the La Masia graduate was once considered the brightest prospect emerging from Barcelona’s famed academy. However, his career stalled following the arrival of Luis Suarez to the Nou Camp. He was subsequently loaned to both Valencia and Deportivo La Coruna.

Munir made 32 appearances in La Liga last season, scoring ten goals and notching six assists. The 22-year-old returned to Barca but has just one year remaining on his current deal. According to reports, the Spanish giants are set to offer him a new deal, but Liverpool should move quickly and bring him to Anfield.

The youngster is primarily a striker but is comfortable on either wing, making him a valuable option for Klopp to have at his disposal. While Dominic Solanke and Divock Origi have struggled, Munir has thrived in a tough division and would give the Reds a much-better backup option to Roberto Firmino. His creative ability would also help the likes of Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane score even more goals.

If Liverpool could secure a cut-price January deal or a pre-contract agreement – it would be a smart piece of business.
