Liverpool have been in pretty dire form of late. The Reds have failed to put together a strong run of results this year and have to look back to 2020 for the last time they won three in a row. Something has got to give. Liverpool need to rejuvenate their attack over the summer and that means replacing one of the front three.
Jürgen Klopp’s side have scored just once at Anfield in the Premier League this year.
That one goal was a penalty, meaning we have to look back to before New Year for the last Reds goal from open play at home.
This run of results has seen draws with Manchester United and West Brom as well as defeats to Brighton, Burnley and Man City.
After going nearly four years unbeaten at home in the league, the Reds have now lost three on the bounce at Anfield.

Rejuvenate the Liverpool attack
The front line have looked lost for ideas.
Too often play is slowing down and isn’t managing to penetrate the opposition defence.
This is only natural, the front three have been devastating opposition for years now. Teams catch on and play becomes too familiar.
The best way to solve this issue is to rejuvenate the attack with a new starter.
Hard goodbye, difficult decision
Bringing in a starter of sufficient quality will surely mean cashing in on one of the current attack.
That will be a hard goodbye for Kopites and a difficult decision for the management.
Who can go?
Should the Reds bring in a new wide forward to bring new ideas in? Or do we need a proper number nine to finish these half chances we’re getting?
There are plenty of options and considerations. Whilst it may seem reactionary to say we need to sell one of our forwards that is far from the truth.
This is the natural cycle of a football team, if we don’t sell one of our forwards now then we face having to replace them in a couple of years time when we won’t be able to command anywhere near the same fee, in turn losing out on the quality of the replacement.
Now is as good a time as any for fresh blood.
