Liverpool striker needed

The Reds struggled in front of goal last season.

Jürgen Klopp’s men consistently wasted chances as they slid down the table from January onwards.

Roberto Firmino had his joint worst season in front of goal in a Red shirt, netting just nine goals in the league.

Many expect a striker to be signed in response to the wastefulness.

Liverpool could bid for Alexander Isak

Euro 2020 is a wonderful showcase for lesser known talents.

However, it would be doing Real Sociedad’s front man a disservice to call him lesser known.

Raphinha, Coutinho and Tielemans: The signings Liverpool could make this summer

Liverpool are contemplating a move for Alexander Isak.

Noticias de Gipuzkoa has claimed that the Reds have a number of reports on the 21-year-old striker who netted 17 La Liga goals last season.

The outlet has reported that Liverpool want him to replace Roberto Firmino in the years to come.

However, the player’s €70m (£63m) release clause could prove a stumbling block.

What RTK has to say

Liverpool submitting a bid for Alexander Isak would mark a change in direction.

The 21-year-old Swede stands at 6ft 4in tall, though he has pace to burn.

Isak would offer more of an aerial threat, a similar mould to Robert Lewandowski who enjoyed great success under Jürgen Klopp.

This would certainly be an exciting move but only if we can negotiate the price down.

Liverpool fans want the signing, we know that for sure.
