Liverpool striker problem

The Reds have operated with a false nine under Jürgen Klopp.

Roberto Firmino drops into spaces between the midfield and attack in order to link up the play.

He presses the opposition back line into mistakes and often plays provider.

This system has worked well up until now but from January onwards we saw how dire the need is for an out and out striker.

The Reds attacking trio appear to have been figured out, we need to change things up. We need a lethal striker to mop up the half chances which are going wasted.

The Express has now reported that Leicester City have joined the race for the striker with Spurs and Chelsea also interested.

What RTK has to say

Liverpool need to act fast to secure Daka.

He netted an incredible 27 goals this season, scooping the Austrian Bundesliga’s Player of the Season award.

The Zambian forward is a lethal finisher and that is precisely what we need, we can’t miss out on this opportunity.
