Liverpool managed to secure a valuable three points against Eddie Howe’s Bournemouth earlier on today, which has moved the Reds three points clear of Manchester City at the top.
The Reds have thrown away winning positions in recent games against West Ham United and Leicester City, so they’ll be hoping that today’s win over the Cherries is a sign of things to come.
But, it looks as if Jurgen Klopp already has one eye on the summer months, as according to Ian McGarry on the Transfer Window Podcast (via Daily Star), Liverpool have enquired about the possibility of signing Lorenzo Insigne.
Indeed, the Reds currently find themselves in a battle for the title but they’ll definitely have one eye on securing the Italian at the end of the season, so here are the potential consequences of signing Lorenzo Insigne in the summer…
FSG MAKE HUGE MOVE
Liverpool fans love to see FSG make huge moves in transfer windows, and it’s safe to say that Lorenzo Insigne could prove to be their most expensive transfer ever, as according to La Repubblica (via Sport Witness), Napoli will only accept an offer of £131 million with the Italian tied to the club until 2022.
The Reds are in need of another attacker despite their success in recent years in the final third, as Roberto Firmino hasn’t been at his best and the likes of Divock Origi and Daniel Sturridge have been disappointing, so it makes sense to splash the cash on one of the world’s most dangerous attacking outlets.
Roberto Firmino has been rather disappointing in recent times as he’s struggled at the pinnacle of the attack, despite impressing earlier on today against Bournemouth. Indeed, his performance against the Hammers was unacceptable as his touch was dreadful and a number of passes went astray, so he desperately needs to try and ensure consistency.
Lorenzo Insigne moving to Liverpool could see Firmino ditched as Mohamed Salah has been deployed in the false 9 position at times this season, so Jurgen Klopp may operate with Salah, Sadio Mane and Insigne as his front three.
