Liverpool are in dire need of a shake up of their attack. The Reds have failed to score the goals we expect of them in recent weeks. Instead we’ve seen consistently limp and wasteful displays. Many believe reinforcements will come in over the summer. Stan Collymore has backed Liverpool to move for Myron Boadu.

Liverpool toothless

The Reds have been struggling in front of goal since their 7-0 thrashing of Crystal Palace in December.

It’s as if they used all of their finishing ability up in that one game.

Since then we’ve seen them out of ideas and out of clinical touches.

This weekend was yet another glaring example of the problems on the front foot.

Jürgen Klopp’s side were beaten 1-0 by Fulham and despite having most of the possession the hosts couldn’t create any glaring chances of note.

We need a changeup of the front three, whether that be with their depth or one of them dropping out for a replacement.

Liverpool and Myron Boadu

There are plenty of players being linked with a summer switch.

The Reds are never far from the gossip pages and fans and pundits are also having their say on who should come in.

Ex-Red Stan Collymore has urged Liverpool to consider a move for Myron Boadu.

The 20-year-old Dutch striker is currently plying his trade at AZ Alkmaar and he’s impressing despite his young age.

A pacy forward with clinical finishing ability, he has 11 goals in the Eredivisie this season.

Collymore tweeted that some Dutch coaches he knows are raving about the youngster, suggesting the Reds should have him on a list of targets.

What RTK has to say

Liverpool moving for Myron Boadu would make sense.

He fits the bill in every sense; he’s athletic enough for the system and young enough to be moulded to fit it.

The youngster has a growing reputation in the Netherlands and he’s bound to be snapped up by a top European side at some point soon.

Whilst he likely wouldn’t be an immediate starter for the Reds he would be a serious upgrade on the depth in the squad.
