Liverpool will have their sights set on securing maximum points in tonight’s clash with Watford at Anfield, with the opportunity to maintain their place at the top of the Premier League table.
However, one thing that has been halting Liverpool’s progress slightly in recent times has been their lack of sharpness in the final third, as the likes of Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino have struggled to find their feet in front of goal.
Indeed, it’s safe to say that Jurgen Klopp’s current system doesn’t really help the front three as they’ve struggled for support at times, with the Reds’ recent match against Manchester United proving that playing with two defensive midfielders and a central midfielder doesn’t always work out.
So, the German should switch things up and resort back to the style that worked wonders during Philippe Coutinho’s time at the club, by deploying an attacking midfielder in behind the front three.
One player who could potentially slot in behind the front three is Bayern Leverkusen’s Kai Havertz.
According to Football Whispers, Kai Havertz visited Melwood in October of 2017 ahead of a potential move to the Premier League, so he would be familiar with the surroundings if the Reds went back in for him.
The 19-year-old has been one of the shining lights in the German Bundesliga this season, having produced an incredible 12 goals and seven assists. His creativity and eye for goal makes him the perfect player for Liverpool to have in behind the front three, and he has all the ingredients to become a future star.
FSG may not be able to conclude a cheap deal for the youngster as he’s valued at £58.5 million (by Transfermarkt), but splashing the cash would be worth it as he could play a huge part in Liverpool’s future.
