January’s transfer window is two months away and all the contenders are already looking for some reinforcements to boost their current rosters and add a much-needed depth for the second half of the season, where every match counts in the most competitive league in Europe.
One of the already great teams that are looking to add even more key pieces to their squads is Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool, a team eager to make a run at the title and finally win the English Premier League for the first time in their history.
Merseyside’s team is currently on the hunt for some additional players that can make an impact off the bench, and one of the most intriguing names that has ringed a bell in the past few weeks is Lorenzo Insigne, the young forward from Napoli that reportedly is looking for another team outside of his native country.
Insigne is only 25 years old but has a lot of experience and a bright future ahead of him, so Napoli is reportedly asking around £44million for the roadrunner. The Italian has brought a lot of attention from several Premier League teams, but it seems that there have been a lot of serious talks with Lorenzo’s management and the Liverpool front office, so there’s a real possibility that the reds will eventually sign the young guy.
So, how will Insigne fit in Klopp’s game plan? Is this a necessary purchase for Liverpool? How will Lorenzo Insigne adapt to his new environment? These are some of the several questions that the red fans are going to ask anytime soon, so let’s take a look at them to try and clear the air.
Lorenzo Insigne is actually a player that can absolutely thrive playing under Klopp’s command, as he’s exactly the kind of player that can occupy multiple positions in the field, and he’s incredible speed and mobility make him just the perfect player for a team that plays with three forwards and are constantly rotating their position in the offensive front.
Besides, Insigne’s arrival could help Sadio Mane, Adam Lallana, Philippe Coutinho and Roberto Firmino ease a little bit of pressure, as there’s not much depth in that position at the team right now since James Milner has been moved to a left Back role and Lazar Markovic was let go once again to Sporting Lisbon on a loan for the year.
The Premier League is actually one of the most demanding competitions in the world, as the players also have to be ready to play the FA Cup, the League cup and in some cases the UEFA Champions League, so if Klopp’s guys are trying to make a run at the title, they’re going to need some extra legs to help them deal with a very long season.
However, Insigne’s a bit overpriced to have him playing off the bench, and even if the young guy has a lot of talent, it’s going to be interesting to see how Jurgen Klopp is going to get him some playing time, as Mane, Coutinho and Firmino are all having great seasons so far.
