The Knackered Reds

Liverpool fans have seen some lacklustre performances in recent weeks.

The Reds have been utterly knackered at the end of the Christmas period and a lack of rotation options has caused some stuttering form.

Jürgen Klopp’s men have looked lethargic at times, not using the ball quickly enough.

The absence of Diogo Jota has been evident but all over the pitch players just aren’t able to maintain their high standards in this hectic season.

Forward depth needed

Diogo Jota can’t cover the front line on his own, particularly when we are likely to lineup with a front four when he’s back.

At the moment Divock Origi is the only centre forward option on the bench and he is consistently disappointing when given a chance.

The Reds need a versatile forward to come in who can make an impact off the bench and take his chances when he starts in order to give one of the front three a rest.

Donyell Malen ideal Liverpool signing

Jürgen Klopp needs someone young and full of potential.

He needs someone versatile with pace to burn and a strong finishing record.

Donyell Malen would be an ideal Liverpool signing.

The ex-Arsenal forward has been impressing for PSV Eindhoven, netting at least once in seven of his last 10 games.

This season he’s bagged nine goals and five assists in 12 starts and four sub appearances.

Naturally a centre forward, the 21-year-old has also played off both wings this term.

The Daily Mail put his price tag at £48m but the Reds would be hoping they could bag him a touch cheaper.

The Reds are crying out for new blood to push the front line, this fleet footed youngster with an eye for goal could be just the man they need – he certainly has a bright future.
