Liverpool could emulate the same tactic they employed with Darwin Nunez and Sadio Mane to sign World Cup star Mohammed Kudus.
Ajax midfielder Kudus has starred for Ghana in the African side’s opening two games in Qatar.
Indeed, the 22-year-old netted his first World Cup goal during Ghana’s Group H fixture against South Korea, nodding home a wicked Jordan Ayew cross. He then rifled in another in the second half to put Ghana 3-2 ahead.
Liverpool are reportedly keeping a watchful eye over Kudus, having sent scouts to watch the midfielder play against Portugal in the Black Stars’ opening World Cup fixture last week.
Kudus against Liverpool
In a repeat of past Liverpool transfers, the Reds could look to sign a player that has scored against them.
The Ghanaian, who has been labelled a “burgeoning superstar” by the Guardian, scored a wonderful goal against Jurgen Klopp’s side in the Champions League group stage - one of his five goals for Ajax from midfield this season.
Liverpool have signed a number of players who have scored against them in the past.
Darwin Nunez, who signed for the Reds in a summer deal that could rise to £85million, scored a pair of goals against the Reds in their Champions League quarter-final tie with Benfica in April.
Mane, who scored 120 goals in his 259 games at Liverpool, netted against the Merseyside club while a Southampton player. Takumi Minamino has also found that against the Reds before signing for Liverpool.
