Liverpool’s marquee signing this summer will likely be an attacker.
We need a left-back to replace the outgoing Alberto Moreno, but this player will obviously only be a backup to Andy Robertson.
But with Daniel Sturridge departing and the fact we’ve little in terms of consistently effective backup to Sadio Mane, Mo Salah and Roberto Firmino – a versatile forward is key.
The Daily Mail have listed 12 potential names we will go in for via journalist Jack Bezantz – and we have ranked them from 12-1 in terms of who we as fans would prefer.
Which name takes your fancy, Reds?
12) Ryan Fraser – Bournemouth
Liverpool can do better. Fraser enjoyed his best ever season, but he’s not Champions League quality.
11) Maxwell Cornet – Lyon
A decent player, but not an upgrade on Shaqiri or Origi: two players currently on our bench for the attacking positions.
10) Bertrand Traore – Lyon
Nice player, but again, no better than Origi or Shaq. Not even an automatic starter for Lyon.
9) Maxi Gomez – Celta
A battling striker who does his best work alongside Iago Aspas in Spain. Doesn’t have any pace though, which puts us off.
8) Felipe Anderson – West Ham
Top player, but not financially viable. West Ham spent over £40m on him, so why would they sell for anywhere near that after he shone in his debut campaign?
7) Julian Brandt – Bayer Leverkusen
Would be higher on our list, but his deal to join Borussia Dortmund is almost done and dusted.
6) Samuel Chukwueze – Villarreal
A very exciting young winger who loves to dribble and has a lovely left-foot. He actually looks a little like Mo Salah on the ball – which is some compliment!
5) David Neres – Ajax
Brazilian with flair and guile – who has done excellently at Ajax. His age and versatility goes for him, as does his penchant for creativity in the final third.
4) Timo Werner – Rb Leipzig
Young, scores goals and is versatile. Would be a very high quality rotation option and could improve under Klopp.
3) Hakim Ziyech – Ajax
Available for £25m due to his release-clause. That, in short, is a ridiculous bargain for a player who beat Dusan Tadic and Matthijs de Ligt to Ajax’s player of the year award.
2) Nicolas Pepe – Lille
Rapid, scores goals, plays anywhere along the front-three. Perfect. We explained why we wanted him way back in February.
1) Joao Felix – Benfica
Potentially generational talent. The Portuguese scored 20 goals in his breakout season and is wanted by all of Europe’s biggest clubs. He’ll cost a bomb, but is the kind of risk we’d suggest is worth taking.
