Lack of goals

Since Liverpool signed Mo Salah in 2017 the Reds front three has been one of the most feared in world football.

Our attacking trident of Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino has terrified defences throughout the game.

They have time and again blown the opposition away with their incisive movement and telepathic interplay.

This season has seen a massive drop off in output from the lads.

Since the turn of the year we’ve struggled to find the net on a consistent basis, leading to the club’s worst ever losing streak at home.

Jürgen Klopp needs a lethal finisher to come in and rejuvenate the front line this summer.

Liverpool target Kylian Mbappe

For years now Liverpool have been linked with a move for Kylian Mbappe.

ESPN are one of a number of outlets to report on the Reds’ interest in the French striker.

Recently Duncan Castles claimed that the youngster would prefer a move to Anfield if he were to join the Premier League.

It is understandable why Liverpool would be so interested in Kylian Mbappe.

He has been one of the world’s most exciting young forwards for years now, it’s amazing that he’s still just 22-years-old.

He’s scored 23 times in 28 games in Ligue 1 this season, last term he netted 18 goals in 17 starts and three sub appearances.

His stats are consistently ridiculous.

Real Madrid can’t afford Kylian Mbappe

This week has seen the rise and immediate fall of The Super League.

The botched plan to decimate football as we know it didn’t even last 48 hours before it was shot down.

English teams withdrew on Tuesday night making the project impossible to proceed with.

Speaking on El Larguero (relayed by Goal), Real Madrid president Florentino Perez admitted that without The Super League his side cannot afford Kylian Mbappe:

“It’s impossible to make signings like Mbappé and Haaland, in general, not just for Real Madrid, without the Super League.”

Liverpool chances of signing Kylian Mbappe boosted

This is great news for the Reds.

Liverpool chances of signing Kylian Mbappe just got a massive boost.

Although Perez has said it’s impossible for any club to sign him we don’t believe that.

Madrid are in real financial trouble and that was a massive motivator behind the Super League move.

FSG have run the club well in the past decade and they’ve just received a large cash injection. The move could be on.
