Liverpool linked with Raphinha

The Liverpool attack needs some fresh blood.

Jürgen Klopp needs competition for places to keep stars on their toes.

Furthermore, additions would mean we can rotate and rest key players to suit our schedule.

At the moment our attacking trio is being run into the ground due to a lack of depth.

According to The Metro, Liverpool are keeping tabs on Raphinha at Leeds United.

The winger netted six and assisted nine in his debut season in England.

Emile Heskey on Raphinha to Liverpool

Despite dozens of options being out there we see Raphinha as an ideal target.

We asked Emile Heskey if he’d take Raphinha at Liverpool and the ex-Red told Rousing the Kop:

“Another great signing if he can come. He’s had a fantastic season. Granted that the Leeds way of playing excites everyone, so aggressive, so forward thinking, so energetic.

“When you see him play, he brings that spark, that difference and guile, the little bit of skill. He’d be a fantastic addition at a good age.”

What RTK has to say

The coming weeks and months will reveal all.

It could be Raphinha, it could be Jadon Sancho, it could be Pedro Neto.

It could be nobody.

Liverpool love to surprise us in the transfer market, we’ll keep our ears to the ground nonetheless.
