Liverpool have ‘substantial budget’ to sign a striker who can also play out wide

Liverpool have ‘substantial budget’ to sign a striker who can also play out wide

Liverpool’s front three

At one point, Liverpool’s front-three rivaled pretty much any attack in Europe’s top-five leagues.

Sadio Mane, Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino formed a deadly attacking trident, with all three integral to Liverpool’s success – including reaching two Champions League finals, and winning their first-ever Premier League title.

But just how much longer can Liverpool rely on said trio?

Roberto Firmino has already begun to decline somewhat, with his finishing having proven particularly poor this season.

As for Mo Salah, recent comments on the part of the Egyptian – which saw him hint that he would be open to playing in Spain – are no doubt set to cast doubt over his future, especially given the fact that he previously stated he would be open to playing for Barcelona or Real Madrid back in December.

Liverpool eyeing a forward

In turn, news emerging that Liverpool are in the market for reinforcements up top has not come as too much of a surprise.

According to transfer expert Duncan Castles, the Reds have a substantial budget to sign a striker, who can also play out wide.

“My information is that Liverpool have a budget to sign a striker, who can also play wide, in the summer window and it’s a substantial budget.”

Castles adds that Jurgen Klopp and co. are looking for a player similar to Salah, though it is added that this does not necessarily point towards the Egyptian himself departing:

“They’re looking for a player of similar type to Mo Salah. Now, I’m not saying that means Salah is leaving, I’m just saying that Liverpool are doing the proprietary work to sign a player of his type.”
