Kopites want a striker to be signed. The Reds are without a recognised number nine, a lethal finisher. Over the summer plenty of players were touted as the solution. One such player netted a brace from the spot this weekend. Liverpool target Dusan Vlahovic is continuing to impress.
Liverpool linked with Dusan Vlahovic
At the minute the Reds are a striker short.
We have three wingers and a false nine spread across the attacking line.
That leaves just one rotation option for the boss with not a single out and out striker.
As a result the Reds were linked with all and sundry during the summer.
Tuttosport was one of a number of outlets to report on Liverpool interest in Dusan Vlahovic.
The Telegraph claimed that Fiorentina want £40m for their towering Serbian striker.
Dusan Vlahovic v Atalanta
This weekend Fiorentina ran out winners against Atalanta.
The Florentine side won the game thanks to two goals from Dusan Vlahovic.
Both strikes came from the spot but they were exceptionally well taken penalties.
The fact that both his goals were spot kicks should also not detract from how impressive his overall performance was.
Fotmob credit him with creating two chances in the game and awarded the striker a 9/10 for his performance.
What RTK has to say
Liverpool need a player like Vlahovic.
The Serbian is a physical presence in the final third and he knows where the net is.
At just 21-years-old he’s only going to get better and our full backs can aid in that.
Just imagine Trent Alexander-Arnold and Andy Robbo swinging crosses in for this target man.
However, we may need to act fast. If he keeps up his lethal record then he’ll cost a lot more than £40m.
