Liverpool need to sign a striker over the summer. The Reds have struggled in front of goal this season with the past few months being particularly barren for Jürgen Klopp’s side. With a new forward on the way there’s plenty of finishers being linked. According to a report in the Netherlands, Liverpool are leading the race for Donyell Malen.
Liverpool goals dry up
The Reds have been one of the most deadly sides in the world for the past few years.
Jürgen Klopp’s attacking trio has terrified defences throughout the game, netting goal after goal on our way to becoming champions of Europe, England and the world.
Bizarrely, Mo Salah, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane have been incredibly wasteful in recent months.
The Reds have failed to consistently find the net, a run of form which has seen the side slip down the table, making a top four finish appear an impossibility.

We need to shake things up with a new arrival. Simon Hughes at The Athletic has said that the Reds signing a striker is seen as a priority at the club.
Liverpool leading Donyell Malen race
A few names keep on cropping up as potential signings for the Reds.
According to Voetbal International, Liverpool are leading the race to sign Donyell Malen.
The report states that the Reds are ‘front of the queue’ for the young forward with the likes of Barcelona also interested.
The outlet believes that PSV would let the striker go for as little as £25m.
For that price his former club Arsenal may want to swoop in to save face on losing him a few years ago.
Donyell Malen stats
It is easy to see why Liverpool are interested in signing Donyell Malen.
The Dutchman has 17 goals and seven assists in the Eredivisie this term.
He’s also netted five in the Europa league for PSV.
Last term was a breakthrough one for the 22-year-old, a season which saw him net 11 goals in 14 league games.
What RTK has to say
Liverpool signing Donyell Malen would be an excellent move.
He is just 22-years-old and full of potential.
The youngster keeps scoring and scoring for PSV and he has all of the athletic attributes to be a Liverpool player.
At just £25m his signing should be a no brainer for the Reds.
However, there is the issue of a lot of competition for his signature.
Fingers crossed Michael Edwards will get his business done bright and early.
