Liverpool are going to have to shake things up in the attacking line this summer. The Reds have been goal shy since Christmas and something has to be done to remedy the situation. Recently an analyst suggested Liverpool should move for Darwin Nunez, he would reportedly cost around £43m.
Firmino replacement needed
Liverpool haven’t scored enough goals in the Premier League this season, it’s as simple as that.
The Reds put seven past Crystal Palace in December and they’ve been goal shy since.
The record has seen the Reds lose a record amount of games in a row at home.
With teams deploying low blocks against Jürgen Klopp’s side we need a more lethal finisher to come in and take the few chances we’re able to create.
Liverpool and Darwin Nunez
A few weeks ago The Athletic’s Tom Worville put forward a number of potential signings.
The analyst pointed Liverpool towards Darwin Nunez, saying he could be a good value option as his stats make him a suitable signing and his relatively poor form means we could bag a bargain.
This week Calciomercato have reported that Milan are interested in the 21-year-old and Benfica would demand £43m for the youngster.
What RTK has to say
Liverpool signing Darwin Nunez only really makes sense if he’s available on the cheap.
£43m is far too steep for a player with only four goals in the league this season.
However, we’ll always trust the judgement of the Reds’ recruitment team, they rarely get it wrong.
