Liverpool are going to sign a forward this summer, that much we can be certain of. The Reds have wasted more than their fair share of chances this term and as a result the consensus is that now is the time to shake things up. Ex-Red John Aldridge has doubled down on claims that Liverpool should sign Harry Kane this summer.
Liverpool need a striker
The Reds’ front three have been together for four seasons now.
That isn’t normal.
Typically attacking lineups are broken up by age; there’ll be one player in his twilight whilst another is coming up.
Roberto Firmino, Mo Salah and Sadio Mane would’ve all been in the same year in school.
This has kept them together for an abnormally long time.
This season saw cracks appear in the trio, chances went wasted and we slid down the table as a result.
Liverpool should sign Harry Kane
There have been dozens of targets touted for the Reds.
Everybody from Patson Daka to Donyell Malen has been linked with an Anfield switch.
This weekend ex-Red John Aldridge reaffirmed suggestions Liverpool should sign Harry Kane, writing in the Sunday World:
“When I mentioned Liverpool should try to sign Harry Kane in my column last Sunday, it was to replace Firmino because Klopp’s team create so many chances and they are just not taking enough of them.”
Last Sunday the retired-pro wrote in his column:
“If Liverpool’s owners want to give the fans a gift by way of an apology for their decision to be part of the European Super League fiasco, signing a player like Kane would be an incredible way of doing it.”
What RTK has to say
Chance would be a fine thing.
The Telegraph has claimed Spurs want £150m for their star man.
Liverpool simply cannot afford Harry Kane, even though he is the perfect striker at the perfect time.
His work rate and link up play make him the ideal man to replace Bobby, it just isn’t realistic.
