It’s no secret that Liverpool are short of depth in the attack. The Reds are two injuries away from being stretched incredibly thin in the final third. As a result bringing in a striker is completely necessary. Liverpool should consider a loan move for Luka Jovic amid claims Everton are doing the same.
Lack of depth
Four players cover our front three positions effectively.
Thereafter we have Divock Origi and his do it on the big occasion philosophy and the yet to settle Takumi Minamino.
As a result a couple of injuries hit us and we face a massive drop off in quality.
Furthermore, the boss cannot rest and rotate the attack like he can the midfield and defence.
In addition the AFCON will present problems with Mo Salah and Sadio Mane set to miss a number of games.
Everton want Luka Jovic
This summer the Ev spent next to nothing, their only outlay being the purchase of Demarai Gray.
Rafa Benitez has done well with very little thus far at Goodison Park.
However, Defensa Central has claimed that the Spaniard is looking at January reinforcements.
The outlet has reported that the boss wants to raid his former club Real Madrid with loan moves for Isco and Luka Jovic.
Liverpool should consider Luka Jovic
If Real Madrid are open to a January loan move then we should be in the conversation.
Liverpool could find Luka Jovic is just what we need a short-term solution.
At just 23-years-old he still has plenty of time to unlock the potential we saw when he was at Eintracht Frankfurt; he scored 17 goals in his final season in the Bundesliga.
If he’s available for the second half of the season he could prove a significant upgrade on Divock Origi.
In addition his bulking physical presence would offer something different up top when we need a plan B.
This could be a relatively risk free, cheap solution in the short term.
