Liverpool haven’t added to their attack since the arrival of Mo Salah in 2017. The front three has been set for three years now but we could well see some additions to the front line next season. Just who will be recruited is anybody’s guess – will the Reds opt for another diamond in the rough or a marquee signing? Liverpool could well move for Erling Haaland after the Norwegian left the door open for a Premier League move.
Liverpool linked with Haaland
Prior to his move to Borussia Dortmund, the Daily Star was one of a number of outlets linking Liverpool with a move for Erling Haaland.
The Norwegian striker had been attracting interest from across Europe before Jürgen Klopp’s old side snapped him up for a bargain fee.
Since arriving in the Bundesliga the 20-year-old has continued to wow the world with his consistent goal getting ability, bagging 13 goals and two assists across 11 starts and four substitute appearances.
“You never know”
This week the 20-year-old netted twice for his nation against Northern Ireland.
Speaking to Sky Sports after the game the youngster was asked about a potential move to the Premier League, he told the broadcaster:
“First of all I’m very happy in the Bundesliga but you never know what will happen in the future.”
What RTK has to say
It is no secret that Dortmund isn’t this phenomenon’s final destination.
Haaland is certain to move to a super club in the next few years, the question is: where and when?
Liverpool could realistically look at overhauling elements of their attack next season. The Reds, as Melissa Reddy pointed out, are going to be ensuring they don’t end up like Barcelona with a number of ageing stars on bumper contracts.
It is likely that the club will cash in on their front three one by one in the coming years. Could Erling Haaland come in to replace one of our deadly trio?
Whoever bags the striker next could well have him for the better part of his career, he could become unaffordable after his next move. If he is open to a move to the Premier League then we should certainly be throwing our hat into the ring.
