Jurgen Klopp could turn Vinicius Jr. into a world-beater

Liverpool should keep a close eye on Vinicius Jr. with his current form setting him up to explode into one of the best forwards in Europe.

Last season, he played 49 games and scored just 6 goals while registering only 7 assists, playing a total of 2722 minutes for Real Madrid in La Liga, the Champions League, Copa del Rey and the Supercopa.

This season, he has only played 16 games for Los Blancos, across 1275 mins and has already scored 9 goals while assisting 7. Despite playing 1447 mins fewer this term so far, he has already bettered his numbers from last term and is playing with confidence that he has never displayed.

He displayed his unbelievable technique against Argentina before the end of the international break with a rainbow flick over the head of Nahuel Molina.

He was subsequently floored by Rodrigo de Paul and perhaps should have been awarded a penalty.

Liverpool must start looking to the future because even if Sadio Mane stay at the club beyond 2023 when his contract is set to expire, he will likely not be able to perform at the level is now or will struggle to play 40+ games per season.

Vincius Jr. is under contract with Real Madrid until 2024 but if he doesn’t extend his terms beyond then, Liverpool should really consider a move to take him to Anfield where Jurgen Klopp would transform him into one of the best players in the world.

Mohamed Salah, Mane and Robert Lewandowski are Klopp’s greatest attacking students, with all of them elite performers in their positions.

Vinicius is still only 21 and has his entire career ahead of him yet has become one of Real Madrid’s best players and will only improve.

Liverpool need to look to the future to ensure they aren’t left with an ageing front line and Vinicius would be my pick to come into the side in the next couple of years.
