Liverpool fans are convinced we are a striker short, it’s hard to disagree. The time is fast approaching for revamping the forward line, particularly the central role. Plenty of Liverpool fans want Erling Haaland signed after he netted another spectacular goal against Union Berlin.
By the start of next season the Reds’ traditional attacking three will all be 30-years-old. Roberto Firmino will be 31-years-old in October of next year.
The front three getting on in years means we need to start considering a succession plan, a revolution of the side.
Furthermore, it’s time to decide what direction we want to go in with our next attacking line.
For instance Roberto Firmino is a false nine, not an out and out finisher. Plenty of fans think now is the time for Liverpool to move for a player like Erling Haaland who can do it all and do it consistently.
This weekend provided further evidence of just what he can do.
Liverpool and Erling Haaland
Naturally, the Reds have been linked with the Norwegian superstar for a while, as has every other top side.
The 21-year-old striker has been posting ridiculous numbers throughout his career.
This term he has seven goals in five Bundesliga games with three assists to boot.
Last season he finished with 27 strikes in 28 games, he’s a machine.
Twitter calls for signing
Liverpool fans have begged for Erling Haaland to join after the Norwegian netted a stunner against Union Berlin at the weekend.
