Liverpool saw off Burnley today to go back to within a point of Manchester City at the top of the Premier League.
A 4-2 win was enough to see the Reds over the line and keep the pressure on Pep Guardiola’s men at the summit of the table, with Sadio Mane in fine form for Jurgen Klopp’s men.
However, a lack of January signings could end up costing Klopp’s men this season, and we here in the Tavern feel that adding a few new players in the summer is vital for the Reds to keep progressing.
And one are of concern really is up front, where despite having the talents of Salah, Mane and Firmino, they could do with someone else up the top of the pitch to take the pressure off.
The likes of Divock Origi and Daniel Sturridge don’t seem to have the quality needed at top four level, and it’s a big concern for Liverpool whenever Brazilian Firmino is out of action.
A new striker would be ideal for the club, although the question of who they should sign is something which poses a very difficult question to answer.
It will though be money well spent. With Champions League football and the domestic cup competitions to play for too, Liverpool need that added depth and quality. There are plenty of impressive strikers out there who could do a job at Anfield, and it has to be something Jurgen Klopp is looking to address.
