Liverpool target Ismaila Sarr scored a Mo Salah like goal

Liverpool are in need of a forward. The Reds are shy of quality in depth in the final third. We’re beginning to sound like a broken record but until the issue is addressed we’ll keep bleating on. This weekend reported Liverpool target Ismaila Sarr scored a Mo Salah like goal.

Why Liverpool need a forward

This is an issue which is talked about every single summer.

Liverpool only have four top quality forwards covering three positions.

As a result injuries can leave us vulnerable and the AFCON can leave us short staffed.

In addition there’s little competition for places in comparison to other top sides.

Finally, the traditional front three are all set to turn 30-years-old before the start of next season. It’s time to look at a succession plan.

Ismaila Sarr scores Mo Salah like goal

The Athletic reported recently that Liverpool like Ismaila Sarr.

The Reds like him so much they tried to sign him ahead of Diogo Jota but finances made the Portugal star a more viable deal.

This weekend Ismaila Sarr scored a Mo Salah like goal.

The Senegal star netted Watford’s effort in a 1-1 draw with Newcastle United.

Sarr headed one in at the back post after a corner was nodded in his direction.

His goal was reminiscent of the Egyptian King’s effort against Crystal Palace when Salah lingered at the far post and volleyed home a flick on from Van Dijk.

What RTK has to say

Liverpool signing Sarr makes plenty of sense, particularly when he’s already mirroring our top stars.

A week ago he netted twice with one of his goals mirroring the game of Sadio Mane as he tapped home a lose ball (much as the Red did against Crystal Palace).

He looks like an ideal signing for the Reds, it’ll be intriguing to see how this pans out.
