Liverpool: With an Antony swoop, Jurgen Klopp Klopp might acquire his own Mahrez

Although Liverpool, the six-time champions of the European Cup, have already acquired three new players to their outstanding team this summer while on their preseason tour of Asia, there may still be potential for growth.

Despite winning the FA Cup and the Carabao Cup last season, the Merseysiders came up short in the Premier League and lost to Real Madrid in the Champions League final despite an incredible run that saw them play every game available across four tournaments.

Sadio Mane’s hasty departure from Anfield to join Bayern Munich in the opening days of the summer transfer window dealt the team a devastating blow after their bittersweet season.

Nevertheless, the Reds made a statement when they acquired Darwin Nunez from Benfica in a club-record deal. They also added Calvin Ramsay and Fabio Carvalho, two young players who bolstered the squad, to their ranks. However, no other players have been added since.

However, there have recently been rumors of a shocking potential transfer, according to Yahoo Sports, who claim that Liverpool are in talks to sign Antony, an Ajax player who is a transfer target for Manchester United, this summer.

The fierce rivals of Kopite have been keeping an eye on the Brazilian winger, who Piet de Visser, a football scout for the Netherlands, described as a “winner.” However, FSG may now be poised to scuttle any deal that ten Hag may have had in mind by making their own offer for the player.

In the Eredivisie last season, Antony made 1.7 crucial passes and one tackle per game while scoring eight goals, providing four assists, and setting up seven significant chances. He also showed himself to be a significant asset for Ajax by winning the majority of his duels (51 percent) and making the majority of his dribbling attempts (56 percent).

If the Reds can complete a deal for the £60 million Manchester City star, who according to FBRef was the second most comparable player to Antony over the past 12 months, Klopp might even land his own Riyad Mahrez at Anfield.

  • The Brazil international exceeded his positional comparable in shots on target accuracy (34.2 percent), tackle wins (12), and shots per 90 minutes even if he didn’t contribute to as many goals as Mahrez did last season (16). (4.12).

Although Mohamed Salah is firmly established in the right flank position at Anfield, it would be beneficial for Liverpool to improve their forward line even more in preparation for the upcoming season and their chase of more titles.
