The Liverpool fans in the Transfer Tavern are desperate for Jurgen Klopp to rebuild his attacking line in January. In the midfield, the German has a host of options to choose from, but he has far more trouble when it comes to selecting a number 9.
Roberto Firmino has been a decent option for much of the season. Though he lacks the natural goalscoring ability of some of his peers, he does provide great technical ability, whilst his hard work on the pitch is also evident. That being said, he’s not one of Europe’s best choices in the role, and it’s clear that he’s one of the poorer options amongst the Premier League’s top six clubs.
Beyond him, Klopp has little to no choice. In particular, Daniel Sturridge – who has typically served as back-up for much of the campaign – has really struggled this season, and so Klopp would be wise to replace him as soon as possible.
Fortunately, January is approaching, and some of Europe’s top forwards are firing on all cylinders, meaning that the Reds won’t have any shortage of potential targets.
It remains to be seen who the Reds will consider if they choose to replace him in January, but Klopp should definitely be looking at these 2 forwards…
