Liverpool have been missing a top quality striker in the recent times for sure. And Jurgen Klopp could well be looking to bring some new faces at the club. Recently he confirmed the signing of Joel Matip from Schalke but what about the strikers ?
Their prolific striker Daniel Sturridge mostly enjoys his time on the sidelines due to the injuries and the team had to rely on their midfield to get a goal. After the departure of Luis Suarez, the team has been struggling a lot without a ‘Pure Striker’, someone like Fernando Torres, The El Nino. At the age of 25, Torres established himself as one of the Liverpool greats and wore a proud number 9 jersey.During his times at the club, he was described as having and eye for the spectacular. The Spanish star who won the Euro for Spain was technically very gifted. He had the ability to find himself in goal scoring positions, using his pace and vision to get in behind defenders.
After the Legacy of El Nino, Luis Suarez took over the reins. The striker joined the Reds in the 2010-11 season £22.8 million. Suarez eventually became an elite player among the forwards of the world. His work rate was superb, not just in scoring goals, the Uruguayan was also capable of creating the goal scoring opportunities for his teammates. He was a goal poacher and was particularly famous for nutmegging the opponents. He was praised for his quickness and his superb finishes. He formed a great partnership with his team-mate Daniel Sturridge and Raheem Sterling during his days at the club. But, in 2014, he joined Barcelona and since then the club has been struggling a lot mostly due to the constant injuries of their only experienced centre-forward Daniel Sturridge.
Here are the 3 strikers who Liverpool should sign to retain the Legacy which Fernando Torres and Suarez left-
A lethal goal scoring machine for the Mancini’s side. This player has been on the radar of many English teams for a long time. He was the product of Barcelona’s La Masia academy. The player is famous for making the most of the limited situations. Capable of scoring with both feet, this player could be a special signing for the Liverpool’s side and could surely replace Sturridge in the first team.
Icardi is a quick and a tactical player with an eye for goal. At just 23 years of age, he has scored 13 goals in his 27 Serie A appearances for the club. If he improves his passing abilities, he can be a specialist in the attacks of Liverpool.
