Liverpool should offer Leroy Sane a lifeline, he's the ideal Mane successor

Liverpool are in need of reinforcements for the attacking line. The Reds also need to start thinking of a succession plan for the front three as the trio approach their 30s. Liverpool should offer Leroy Sane a lifeline as he struggles to make an impact at Bayern Munich.

Attacking depth needed

At the minute Liverpool have four attackers filling in three roles.

After that there is a massive drop off in quality when it comes to the boss’ options.

As a result a couple of injuries could leave us in something of a pickle.

On top of that the Reds’ main attacking trio, the famed trident of Roberto Firmino, Sadio Mane and Mo Salah will all be 30-years-old at the start of next season.

We need to start looking at a succession plan.

Liverpool should offer Leroy Sane lifeline

Last summer Man City sold Leroy Sane to Bayern Munich in a deal worth around £55m.

Since then the German winger has struggled for the Bundesliga side.

The ex-City man has failed to live up to the billing, last term he netted just six goals in the league.

In addition he hasn’t nailed down a place as a regular, undisputed starter.

This was the same situation he faced at Manchester City with Pep Guardiola’s superstar roulette.

Last season Sane started 18 games in the league but appeared as a substitute on 14 occasions.

Liverpool should offer Leroy Sane a way out, a chance to realise his potential as a regular starter.

The German winger is still just 25-years-old and he has the versatility to play on either flank – a trait highly valued by Jürgen Klopp.

He could be the ideal successor to Sadio Mane with his eye for a goal and knack for assisting.

If he is given the chance to be an automatic first choice somewhere he could become one of the world’s best, we should give him that chance.
