Liverpool stretched thin

At the moment the Liverpool front three are without serious backup.

Diogo Jota was drafted in to provide depth and competition but the Portuguese star will be out for the next two months with a knee injury.

Divock Origi has been incredibly underwhelming when afforded opportunities this term.

Xherdan Shaqiri is also absent with injury.

This has left the boss with pretty much no rotation options for the front line.

Liverpool target Ismaila Sarr

The Liverpool ECHO reported over the summer that Liverpool had Ismaila Sarr as part of a three man shortlist.

The outlet also claimed that Watford wanted £40m for their wide forward.

The 22-year-old Senegal star was a rare bright spark for the North of London side in their relegation season last term.

Ismaila Sarr showing right qualities

This season has seen reported Liverpool target Ismaila Sarr showcase the qualities the Reds are looking for.

The youngster has popped up in no less than four positions for the Hornets according to WhoScored.

This versatility would prove vital to the Reds at the minute.

At a time when we have a dearth of depth, having a player capable of covering each position is vital.

Whether or not the Reds will return for the forward is up in the air. All we know is that he certainly has something to offer.
