By buying a $11 million man who devastated Man City’s pair, Liverpool should address the Roberto Firmino issue.



Much of Liverpool’s lack of depth this summer has centered on the club’s emphasis on midfield. But the reality is that Liverpool are lacking options not only in midfield but also in attack.

This summer, Liverpool lost three players with the departure of Sadio Mané, as well as Divock Origi and Takumi Minamino, who scored a total of 49 goals for the club last season.
Darwin Núñez alone cannot replace that tally and Liverpool certainly looked a bit lukewarm in front of goal, especially given Roberto Firmino’s poor form and Diogo Jota’s injury so far this season.

This could prompt Liverpool to make a move with the transfer market still open for Julian Ward to bring in reinforcements. “As a manager, of course I would like to have more players available,” Jurgen Klopp told Sky Sports in the wake of his team’s defeat to Manchester United on Monday night, and those comments could elicit a response from Liverpool. hierarchy.
Obviously, the Reds won’t be looking for a big buy, just a smart buy that can take some of the weight off the current strikers and fill the kind of deputy role that Origi and Minamino have played at Anfield over the years. . .
One such option could be 25-year-old Hungarian international Roland Sallai.
Over the summer, Sallai caught his country’s attention, scoring a brace against England in the surprise 4-0 win over Hungary, in which Sallai harassed both Kyle Walker and John Stones and took fouls from the two – and the latter was even eliminated the expulsion towards the end of the game for a second yellow card.
Earlier in the season, Sallai also scored against England at Wembley in a 1-1 draw, and his form for his country was particularly impressive with two assists in three matches at Euro 2020 last year against France. and Germany, as well as four-goal contributions in their last six games. He’s had a little less success at club level but that could be down to Sallai being used in a different role at Freiburg where he doesn’t get as many opportunities as he did for his country. Nonetheless, his 0.49 goal contributions are still a commendable achievement, especially as he played a key role in his side’s Europa League qualification last season.

Sallai, valued at £10.8million by Transfermarkt, is the kind of under-the-radar option Liverpool could pick on the market to add to Klopp’s squad and he’s the kind of profile for the club to pick. .
Full of energy, he is a pressing monster, especially in the last third. He is now a poacher, like Diogo Jota, in the penalty area and can be dangerous from the air crossing into the penalty area as well as running behind the defence. He may not be the star signing that will wow fans with enthusiasm, but Sallai could be the kind of smart acquisition to help keep Liverpool at the top of the game and freshen things up after a rocky start.
