Liverpool need a striker

There was a time when a striker seemed to be bottom of the Reds’ list of transfer priorities.

The Reds were famously lethal in attack but leaky defensively.

The title defence showed us how desperately we need a lethal touch up top.

When teams are sitting deep against us we can’t afford to waste half chances.

Therefore the Reds need to bring in some competition for Roberto Firmino, someone to eventually replace him.

Liverpool could target Alexander Isak

21-year-old Alexander Isak has got fans talking recently.

The Swedish striker was a standout performer for Real Sociedad last season.

He netted 17 goals for the Spanish side this season and 16 the year before.

That is quite an impressive tally given his young age.

Standing at 6ft 4in tall he offers something different to Roberto Firmino.

Liverpool signing Alexander Isak would actually be quite an exciting move given his age and potential.

Although The Athletic has reported his release clause stands at a lofty £60m.

Michael Edwards would be hoping to negotiate a discount on this figure should the Reds indeed move for the Sweden international.

Liverpool fans want Isak

Kopites flooded Twitter calling for the Reds to move for the Sociedad forward after he impressed in flashes for Sweden against Spain.

Despite being limited to just 20 touches he came close on occasion and showed enough to get some Liverpool fans talking.
