Liverpool are in dire need of a striker. This season saw a massive drop off in output up top and we need to address the issue before the start of next season. Liverpool could sign Donyell Malen for just £26m, Arsenal must be kicking themselves.
Lethal striker needed
The Reds haven’t operated with an out and out number nine for years.
Roberto Firmino has been deployed as a false nine, linking the play rather than finishing it.
However, this season has shown that we are in dire need of a traditional striker.
There is no competition or quality of depth in the attack and this problem as arguably the cause for the drop off in output from January onwards.
The front three looked fatigued and figured out, we need to change things up with some fresh blood.
Liverpool can move for Donyell Malen
FSG like to sign players whose market value will increase over time.
This typically means youngsters with a high ceiling.
Therefore, Liverpool should be looking at Donyell Malen.
Voetbal International previously claimed that the Reds are leading the race for the 22-year-old striker.
The forward netted 19 goals and assisted eight for PSV in 32 league appearances this season.
According to The Athletic’s The Radar, the player could be available for as little as £26m.
What RTK has to say
Liverpool snapping Malen up would leave Arsenal kicking themselves.
The Dutchman was sold by the Gunners for less than £1m according to The Athletic.
Now he is seen as one of the brightest young strikers in Europe.
The forward would be a perfect addition for Liverpool and at just £25m he’d be a bargain buy.
