Previously, when covering Liverpool’s attacking prowess, I’ve described our front three of Salah, Mane and Firmino as probably one of the best in Europe.
On their day, and given the right service, they’re able to provide the goals that rack up victories.
However, I’m not convinced that, as the season has progressed, Liverpool have the strength in depth to facilitate a change when tiredness and weariness affect the aforementioned trio, a point proven last night when Origi, presented with a stoppage-time chance to win the game, completely fluffed the chance.
To that effect, it is pleasing to see, although the transfer window has now closed, Liverpool linked with the acquisition of another striker.
According to the tabloid publication, the Daily Star, Liverpool are looking at signing a striker who is a star performer in Serie A, with the player in question being 27-year-old Lorenzo Insigne.
Our referenced source is championing the suggestion that Liverpool have bid €70 million in an effort to persuade his current club, Napoli, to sell their asset.
Here at Vital Liverpool, we’d welcome the addition of Insigne to the squad and we’ll endeavour to keep abreast of any developments relating to a possible deal and report back as deemed necessary.
