Liverpool are going to have to sign a striker this summer and one man is deemed by fans as a top target. There is one player who we have been linked with for years and now could be the time. Liverpool fans on Twitter have been calling for Kylian Mbappe to be signed following the Reds’ top four finish.
Striker signing needed
Liverpool have been poor on the front foot since January.
The Reds weren’t exactly lethal before that (aside from a 7-0 thumping of Crystal Palace) but output dropped off drastically as we entered 2021.
The lack of a lethal finisher cost us dearly with chances consistently going begging, leaving Jürgen Klopp’s men with a fight on their hands to secure a top four finish.
As a result fans and pundits alike are expecting the Reds to move for a striker over the summer, someone who can put away these half chances.

Liverpool and Kylian Mbappe
Despite the Reds being linked with all and sundry there has always been one man deemed the top target, the fantasy signing.
ESPN are one of a number of outlets to report Liverpool interest in Kylian Mbappe.
Whilst Duncan Castles has claimed that the Reds would be his preferred destination should he make the move to England.
He won’t come cheap, according to Guillem Balague the Paris club will demand £155m for the prodigy.
This season was another vintage one for the young Frenchman, he netted 27 goals in Ligue 1 but it wasn’t enough to stop PSG conceding the title to Lille.
Fans call for Liverpool Mbappe signing
Some Kopites believe that our top four finish combined with PSG’s failure could mean the Mbappe signing is on.
