Under German manager, Jurgen Klopp, Liverpool have developed into a well-branded attacking unit that has been scoring goals at any given chances. The Premier League giants so far this season have scored 68 league goals, most goals by any team and there performance in the early parts of the season was overwhelming.
Courtesy of Reds attacking trio; Sadio Mane, Roberto Firmino, and Philippe Coutinho, Liverpool were on fire and the title looked well within reach for the Reds at the time. However, they experienced a lean period in between, with Sadio Mane unavailable due to international duty and Brazilian, Philippe Coutinho out injured. This threatened Reds EPL season.
The attacking option is one of the most important area Jurgen Klopp needs to focus on rebuilding over the summer. To that end, we look at two left wingers they could make use of and to pair with Sadio Mane on the opposite flank. To make the attack looks more strong just like Liverpool in the old times, Klopp should consider signing these two and to use Coutinho in a deeper role.
If Liverpool ever wish to reach the next level, they have to start making signings of real intent. Thomas Lemar is one among few exciting youngsters in the market right now, and the Reds should act bold and consider making an approach for him.
The 21-year-old French international has been brilliant for Monaco this season and bagged stunning 12 goals and has further record of 9 shots. The left-winger at his age, is being tipped as a future superstar of the game, and his performances this season shows how promising he is.
However, the Reds must be aware he may not come at a give-away price and remains to be seen if his Principality-club shows interest in parting with him. But the Merseyside should go for it if they are to become serious league contenders next season. The Frenchman will be the perfect signing to help them achieve that aim.
Perhaps Julian Brandt is the most likely to come in and strengthen Liverpool’s attacking options in the summer. Jurgen Klopp’s compatriot most gifted talent in recent times, the 20-year-old has been severally linked with a move to Anfield in the summer.
The German boss is said to be a long-time admirer of his country man, and Klopp reportedly has him pinned down as his key target before next season. The Bayern Leverkusen left winger is very versatile across the front line, and his pace, fast decision-making and wiry six-foot frame make him a dangerous player to deal with. This season, he has bagged 4 times for the German side and has assisted 6 goals as well.
Liverpool signing a bright and young player in the form of Brandt could prove to be the ideal signing for the Reds as he would allow Brazilian international Philippe Coutinho to play more centrally while also acting as an able backup for Mane if need be.
