For the Liverpool fans in the Transfer Tavern, the need for a new striker at Anfield is painstakingly clear. The Reds have a lot of attackers at the club, but Klopp has been very hesitant to try many of them as a centre-forward.
Though originally signed as more of a deep-lying forward, Roberto Firmino has been the option of choice for Klopp throughout most of his campaign so far, and he’s been a decent choice. That being said, he’s lacked the goals of some of his Premier League counterparts, and so the German manager could look to sign a more prolific forward in January.
There are a ton of in-form strikers in Europe at present, and one player that has seemingly attracted the attention of the Liverpool fans is Mauro Icardi. Icardi has bagged a stunning 16 league goals already this season, and when polled on the prospect of Liverpool signing him, a whopping 78% of fans responded with a signal of approval.
The Reds have not yet been linked with him, and his future remains uncertain, and so whilst there is no suggestion that a move is imminent, it’s clearly a deal that would interest the Anfield faithful.
Providing an incredible goalscoring record, impressive technical play and leadership, Icardi could be the perfect Liverpool January signing, and alongside the lethal duo of Sadio Mane and Mo Salah, there is no telling how impressive their attack would be.
Our landlord is expecting there to be a lot of wishing amongst the Liverpool fans in January.
