Liverpool are supposedly considering reigniting their pursuit of Quincy Promes almost a year after targeting the winger.
The Reds were believed to be tracking the 25-year-old last January, although rumours were seemingly fuelled by the sheer idea of Jurgen Klopp recruiting a replacement for Sadio Mane, who was taking part in the African Cup of Nations at the time.
Klopp’s men could soon face Promes, who was previously valued at £25m, when his Spartak Moscow side comes to Anfield for a Champions League group stage match at the beginning of December.
Liverpool are plotting a return for the Dutchman when the transfer window re-opens in January, according to Transfermarketweb.
With Mane and Mohamed Salah already occupying the wide areas and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain posing as a viable backup in the same position, it seems highly unlikely Klopp will look to bolster his attacking options again.
The pace and directness Promes offers makes the tenuous links understandable given how suited he looks to Klopp’s system and approach.
Strengthening the back four looks likely to become the priority, with Liverpool’s familiar defensive frailties proving costly so far this season and Southampton’s Virgil van Dijk having personally re-sparked rumours linking him to an Anfield switch.
All that said and done, Klopp’s all-out attack attitude means the arrival of another forward can never be entirely ruled out.
