Three reasons why Liverpool should sign Alexander Isak

Liverpool are going to sign a striker this summer, hopefully. The Reds have been poor in front of goal since the turn of the year and this needs resolving. It’s time for an out and out number nine. AS have reported that Liverpool want Alexander Isak, his release clause is around £63m. We’ve put together three reasons why he’d be a perfect signing:

Liverpool Alexander Isak and potential

Liverpool like to move for youngsters whose value will increase over time.

The Reds aren’t in the business of signing wisened old pros on bumper contracts.

Instead FSG move for players with bags of potential who could net the club a hefty profit over time.

Liverpool signing Alexander Isak is perfect in this regard.

The Swedish forward is just 21-years-old, he’s got a decade left at the top.

Different proposition

Standing at 6ft 4in tall, Alexander Isak would bring Liverpool something completely different.

At the moment we don’t have that domineering presence up top.

What’s more is that the striker may be incredibly tall but he’s also got the pace to match.

This wouldn’t be a case of signing a tall cumbersome front man but rather bringing in an aerial threat who can out sprint defenders.

Lewandowski precedent

Jürgen Klopp has experience in moulding young strikers into world beaters.

Alexander Isak is 21-years-old. When Jürgen Klopp signed Robert Lewandowski the Polish striker had just turned 22-years-old.

During his time at Dortmund Klopp turned Lewandowski into a world class forward.

The boss could repeat the trick if Liverpool sign Alexander Isak.

The Swedish forward is young and naive and primed for being sculpted into an elite level striker, he just needs the right coach.
