Journalist Reveals Likelihood Liverpool Will Sign Another Forward This Summer
| Last updated
Following the additions of Fabio Carvalho and Darwin Nuñez, Liverpool fans have been told any further incomings in the forward areas are highly unlikely the summer.
A report from talkSPORT's Alex Crook suggests Jürgen Klopp is already content with what he has in front of him in forward areas.
The German tactician already has a number of quality options in attacking areas in Mo Salah, Roberto Firmino, Luis Diaz, Diogo Jota, and new arrival Darwin Nuñez.
Matters could change, however, if Liverpool decide to cash in on Mo Salah this summer.
With contract talks at a stalemate, and Liverpool unlikely to ever meet his current demands, the Anfield club could be interested in selling the Egyptian this transfer window if a bid in the region of £60 million arrives for the player.
As such, speculation in the media has remained rife concerning potential forward incomings at Anfield.
Unless Salah leaves though, which Crook suggests is unlikely, no more forwards will be joining Liverpool this summer.
Speaking about reports linking Marco Asensio to Liverpool, Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano did note that there’s one situation where this could change.
If Darwin Nuñez fails to hit the ground running at Liverpool, it could encourage Liverpool to dip into the transfer market a few weeks into the new season.
However, one would imagine Nuñez’s start to the season would have to be truly disastrous for Liverpool’s hand to be forced in such a manner.
It would appear that the realistic conclusions Liverpool fans should be reaching from such reports are that no more forwards will be joining the club this summer.
The only way in which further attacking players will be brought in are in circumstances which are unlikely to come to light.
Kopites will have to settle with what they’ve already got, which is arguably the most fearsome set of attacking players in the Premier League.
