Lack of goals

The Reds injury crisis has mostly impacted the centre of defence.

However, the ripple effects of the crisis have reverberated throughout the side.

Jürgen Klopp’s front three have been struggling for goals in recent months with supply into the final third disjointed.

The trio have also been extremely wasteful with the precious few chances we have created.

As a result plenty of fans and pundits believe that this summer will see Liverpool move for a striker.

Liverpool linked Luis Suarez comments

There have been plenty of names thrown up as potential solutions to the lack of goals up top.

Fichajes recently claimed that Liverpool are considering a swoop for Luis Suarez.

The Uruguayan striker left Anfield for Barcelona in 2014 and joined Atletico Madrid last summer.

The Mirror has this weekend dug up comments the striker made after a legends game at Anfield, the quotes seem to indicate he’d be open to a return:

“You never know in football what the future holds but if I ever play in England again I will play for the Liverpool team and not another team.

“I’ve missed the fans. The atmosphere is unbelievable, it’s amazing. Everyone who’s played for Liverpool knows how important the supporters are. They know they are in my heart.”

What RTK has to say

Liverpool signing Luis Suarez doesn’t make a tremendous amount of sense.

The only scenario in which it makes sense is if we bring him in for one season whilst we work on securing a long term option.

Otherwise this could just be a move in the interest of nostalgia and shirt sales; he’s still got the ability but he doesn’t fit the recruitment philosophy.
