Liverpool are going to have to rejuvenate the front line this summer. The Reds have been struggling in front of goal in recent months, fresh blood seems an inevitability at this point. Just who will come in remains a mystery; according to reports in Italy, Liverpool want to sign Dusan Vlahovic and have been in touch with his agent.
Front three revolution
You don’t often see a front three together as long as the Reds’ attacking trio has been.
The trident has been terrifying opposition defenders since it was assembled in 2017.
However, recent months have shown signs that the lineup may well have run its course.
Since the turn of the New Year we’ve seen a distinct lack of goals from our typically potent attacking line.

Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino have been particularly wasteful with Mo Salah still managing the odd moment of magic.
Although injuries and they disjointed build up play that comes with them can explain some of the reduced output they can’t explain away the spurned chances.
This summer needs to see revolution, we need a fresh face to come in shake things up in the front line.
Liverpool linked with Dusan Vlahovic
The Reds have had their name linked with plenty of exciting strikers in recent months.
The club are thought to be leading the race for PSV’s Donyell Malen.
Whilst Patson Daka at Red Bull Salzburg is also thought to be an option for the Reds.
Names keep on being added to the list. According to Corriere Dello Sport, Liverpool are keen on Dusan Vlahovic.
The outlet reported over the weekend, as cited by CalcioMercato, that the Reds have been in touch with the player’s agent Darko Ristic in order to sound out a move.
Corriere Dello Sport believe that Fiorentina would want around £43m for the striker.
The hype around the 21-year-old Serbian is understandable, he’s netted 19 goals for La Viola this season.
Manchester United, Real Madrid, Manchester City, Roma and Milan are also cited as potential suitors for the exciting young striker.
What RTK has to say
Liverpool signing Dusan Vlahovic would be a somewhat surprising move.
Given the alleged price tag it would be an expensive gamble for the Reds.
When you compare his £43m valuation to the supposed £25m it would cost to recruit Donyell Malen then this one doesn’t seem to make sense.
However, the recruitment team have built up enough credit with us, we expect them to make the right decision come what may.
