Liverpool target trio of quality attackers as Klopp makes January transfer window plans

Posted by

Newly appointed Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp appears very keen on getting to work on strengthening his side’s attack if rumours reported by The Daily Telegraph are anything to go by.

Liverpool brought in Christian Benteke and Danny Ings to boost their front-line over the summer and both players have impressed in patches whilst Daniel Sturridge’s return from long-term injury has been another boost, however the Anfield side have managed just eight goals in eight Premier League games and as such there is clearly room for improvement.

Ranking the trio of striking targets outlined by this source by order of likelihood you’d have to place Bayern Munich’s Robert Lewandowski as the least likely, in a big way, target to be lured to Merseyside.

The Polish international has been in stunning form for club and country, scoring 15 goals in his last six appearances, and is highly unlikely to consider a move away from Bundesliga table topping Bayern Munich any time soon.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang Borussia Dortmund

Next up is Borussia Dortmund forward Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, said to be a £35m Liverpool target.

Klopp brought Aubameyang to the Westfalenstadion back in July 2013 and the Gabon international has proven a big hit in the German top tier.

In his first two campaign the former Saint-Etienne man bagged 42 goals in 94 appearances and this season has proven his most prolific to date, the lanky striker netting 14 goals in 13 matches.

One imagines a January move for the Gabon international is likely but if Liverpool have secured a return to the Champions League for 2016/17 then perhaps a move to reunite with Klopp is plausible.

Finally we have Swansea City attacker Andre Ayew, who can play out wide or in a central striking role.

The 25-year-old joined Garry Monk’s side on a free transfer in the summer after he had run down his Marseille contract and has made an immediate impact in the English top tier.

Ayew has scored four goals in his opening eight Premier League appearances and though the speedy forward is tied down to a four year contract it’s likely a move to Anfield would tempt the Swansea City man.
