3 Reasons Why Liverpool Should Go For This Argentine Sensation

Since Luis Suarez left for Barcelona at the end of the 2013-14 season, Liverpool haven’t been able to find proper replacement. Daniel Sturridge was tipped to fill in the Uruguayan’s boots, but injuries have hampered his progress. Also, the strikers that Liverpool signed have not come anywhere near to the Uruguayan’s heroics at Liverpool. Jurgen Klopp has brought about a revolution at Anfield since taking over, And this summer, things are expected to change at Liverpool. Throughput the summer, Liverpool have been linked with Gonzalo Higuain and signing him would very much solve Liverpool’s striker problems. Here are 3 reasons why Higuain would be the perfect signing for Liverpool:

1.) Goal Record

Gonzalo Higuain has just come off a record breaking campaign in the Serie A, scoring 36 times in 35 games for Napoli. Higuain has a happy knack of scoring goals and he has scored 91 goals in 146 total games so far for Napoli. This signifies the finishing ability that Higuain possesses and not only does he score goals, but also he creates goals and this fact is well illustrated by the 26 assists that he has provided in his time at Napoli. Scoring goals in Serie A is somewhat tough compared to other leagues, yet the Argentine has managed to score almost a 100 goals for Napoli. Higuain also managed to score 121 goals in 264 games at Real Madrid. Liverpool need a 20-goal-a-season striker and Higuain is the player Liverpool are looking for.

2.) His Style Of Play suits Liverpool’s

Since Jurgen Klopp took over, he has brought about certain tactical changes at Liverpool. Liverpool’s style of play involves high pressing, aka Gegenpressing, and Higuain can press the opponents with high intensity. Higuain’s finishing prowess is exceptional and he showed it last season in the Serie A. If Liverpool sign him, he will have the creators like Coutinho and Firmino at his back and he is bound to get goal scoring opportunities and then Liverpool fans can expect a goal feast if Higuain joins the club. Higuain can hold on to the ball well and do layoffs for his teammates. Jurgen Klopp wants an attacking player who can also fulfill his defensive duties to the fullest and Higuain’s tackle timing is quite impressive.

3.) Progress is his first priority

Reports suggest that Higuain is highly interested in joining Liverpool, in spite of the fact that Liverpool are not going to have European football next season. Higuain will not hesitate joining any club as long as he will be able to develop. At Real Madrid, Higuain did not got the proper game time in his last 2 seasons and his progress came to a stall. Higuain could have left Napoli last season after they failed to qualify for the Champions League. Yes, they were in the Europa League, but a striker of Higuain’s class would surely have wished for Champions League football.

Higuain is keen on working with Jurgen Klopp and his camp is surprised that Liverpool haven’t approached them still. Daniel Sturridge’s future at Liverpool is far from intact, although his performances in the last part of the season have seemingly earned him one more season at the club. Higuain can be the perfect signing for Liverpool and Liverpool should sign him.
