After stopping working to restore the Premier League title last season after winning it for the first time in 30 years during the 19/20 campaign, Liverpool have got their present season off to an excellent start, winning 4 and drawing three of their opening seven league games.
Despite the Reds still being unbeaten in the league and having actually scored more goals than any other club with 17, it appears as though the Merseyside club are keen on reinforcing their team in the future.
What’s the news?
It was just recently reported by Italian media outlet Tuttosport that Liverpool are interested in signing Fiorentina striker Dusan Vlahovic.
It’s declared an auction may occur over the striker however the Reds will face lots of competitors for his signature with Juventus and Atletico Madrid also interested.
Since signing up with the Italian club back in the 2018 summer season transfer window from FK Partizan Belgrade, the 21-year-old, who is presently valued at ₤ 36m according to Transfermarkt, has actually made an overall of 92 appearances for Fiorentina throughout all competitors in which he has actually handled to score 35 goals and provide five helps along the method.
Last season Vlahovic the striker acquire an impressive 21 objectives in 37 Serie An appearances so he is quite evidently a deadly proposal.
So far this season, the 21-year-old, who editor in chief at Forza Italian Football, Conor Clancy described as a “total” number nine, has actually currently handled to score six objectives in 8 appearances throughout all competitions for the club.
Taking all of this into account, it’s easy to see why Liverpool are obviously interested in adding the striker to their squad.
In our view, he might be a huge upgrade on Roberto Firmino.
The Brazilian isn’t getting any younger at the age of 30 and he likewise has a lack of goalscoring consistency with that factor being brought into concern sometimes in the past. He has actually failed to score more than nine league objectives in his two previous Premier League projects, so we feel that a potential move for Vlahovic might be an excellent method of securing a future replacement.
Would Vlahovic be a good replacement for Firmino?
Moving on, if Liverpool do choose they want to sign a striker at some time in the future, either to replace Firmino or not, Vlahovic needs to definitely be a choice they consider.
