Liverpool have been in stuttering form to say the least. The Reds have struggled for goals and for wins. Jürgen Klopp’s side are without a Premier League goal this year, leaving fans wondering where the spark will come from. Former Liverpool target Martin Odegaard reportedly wants a move; the Reds need him desperately.
Liverpool target Martin Odegaard
There has been a long courtship between Liverpool and Martin Odegaard.
Back in 2014 when the Norwegian was just 15-years-old and arguably the most in demand young footballer on the planet he was invited to train with the Reds.
Despite Liverpool being his boyhood club he decided to join Real Madrid.
He was then sent on a series of loans, most recently impressing for Real Sociedad.

The Liverpool ECHO reported that Liverpool hard renewed interest in Odegaard in 2019.
Odegaard asks to leave Madrid
Since returning to the Bernabeu this summer, the Norwegian youngster has failed to get regular game time under Zinedine Zidane.
The 22-year-old has made just three starts and four sub appearances for Los Blancos.
This is in stark contrast to the 29 starts he made for Sociedad last term.
According to Marca the youngster is fed up and has asked to leave Madrid in order to get some more regular game time.
Liverpool need Odegaard
The Reds once again renewing interest in the Norwegian makes sense.
We need an attacking spark, someone to unlock the opposition defence.
With his versatility, creativity and flair there are few more ideal candidates for the job than Odegaard.
He could slot into the midfield three, play behind the striker in a 4-2-3-1 or he could fill in on either wing if needed.
Given the lack of goals, it is a no brainer to bring someone in to spark the attack; a wantaway former target makes sense.
