It looks like Sadio Mane is going to take the no.10 shirt, which has been vacant since Coutinho left in January.
The Telegraph reckon our Senegalese flyer is on the brink of signing a new five-year contract – and will change his shirt number to boot.
For some Liverpool fans, this might be an indication that we’re not going to buy a playmaker, but we’ve still got faith that with just under three weeks of the transfer window remaining, Nabil Fekir may arrive!
The Frenchman wears no.18 for Lyon, but that is currently occupied by Alberto Moreno, so if we do pull off another epic transfer, it’ll be interesting to see what he takes.
Mane is known as a winger or an inside-forward, but at times last season, did exceptional work centrally.
From a traditional no.10 role, Mane can dribble, pass and wreak havoc amongst opposition defences – especially with Roberto Firmino and Mo Salah complementing him.
