Stephan El Shaarawy is the quality back-up Liverpool need in January

Liverpool still have their eyes firmly locked on the summit of the Premier League, with their unbeaten run still intact. 

Jurgen Klopp will be very excited to see what the future holds for his brilliant Liverpool squad, with many believing the sky is the limit.

Being just two points off top place in the Premier League and likely to qualify for the Champions League knock-out stages, already it seems set to be a season to remember.

Surprisingly, their problems this season have been reversed from last. No longer are they worried about defending, more scoring the goals at the other end is the concern now with Mane, Salah and Firmino not yet at their best.

To improve that, they need to recruit another forward who can be used as competition and to help the front three strive to be better.

A player of Roma’s Stephan El Shaarawy’s standards would be a big coup for Liverpool and a deal they should look to pursue.

El Shaarawy, who is valued at £18 million on Transfermarkt, is a winger that has consistently proven to be valuable squad player out in Italy.

With three goals and an assist so far this season, he seems set for more of the same impressive displays that earned him nine goals and seven assists last season.

Liverpool could have a brilliant rotation option with Xherdan Shaqiri also having the ability to play on the wing or up-front as well.

It’s squad depth and quality that will win competitions at the end of the year and Liverpool have to continue their impressive summer spending and look for players like Stephan El Shaarawy in January.
