Liverpool have been struggling for goals this season. Well, they’ve struggled for goals in their last five or six Premier League games. The Reds haven’t scored in the league since late December. They need to resolve this issue and fast. Liverpool should consider a short term deal for Edin Dzeko; Man United provide an example of why the move would make sense.
Goals dry up
Liverpool have scored just once in the Premier League since they thrashed Crystal Palace 7-0 in the Premier League on the 19th of December.
That solitary goal came against West Brom at Anfield.
This means the Reds haven’t scored in the league this year.
There’s been defeats at the hands of Burnley and Southampton and bore draws with Newcastle and Manchester United.
Something has to change, we need more firepower up top. At least more quality in depth.
Edin Dzeko available
According to Goal, Edin Dzeko is set to leave Roma after a falling out with manager Paulo Fonseca.
The 34-year-old striker has been with Roma since the 2015/16 season.
Kopites will remember him for his time leading the line for Manchester City, he netted one of the goals in the memorable title clincher against QPR.
Liverpool should consider Edin Dzeko
Hear me out.
Liverpool should consider Edin Dzeko on a short term deal if he’s available.
The striker may be getting on a bit but he would be a massive upgrade on Divock Origi as a backup.
When we need a goal against a parked bus he would provide a target in the middle, someone to win headers and score the vital goal.
He has experience of winning titles in England and he has scored goals all of his footballing life.
Sure he may be getting on a bit but Manchester United have shown that you can have great success by bringing in iconic, ageing strikers on short term deals.
Edinson Cavani is performing well, as did Zlatan Ibrahimovic during his time at Old Trafford.
Liverpool could do much worse than bringing Edin Dzeko in for six months.
