Liverpool have had a rather underwhelming start to the Premier League which has seen same ghosts of the past haunting them. While they have managed to get quite a lot of goals, they have failed to remedy the leakage at their end. Despite their defensive frailties, Liverpool never shy away from adding more firepower to their attack. They have no dearth of attacking players but perhaps lack an out and out striker which has seen the Merseyside outfit now been linked with a £10million move for Anderlecht ace Lukasz Teodorczyk.
According to latest reports, the striker is being monitored by several other clubs including West Ham and Everton. Teodorczyk managed to net an astounding 22 goals in the Belgian top flight last season and was the top scorer in the Belgian’s first division. He would surely be not short of clubs approaching him. The 26-year-old was linked with a move to the Reds last term as well but it didn’t quite materialize.
Even though it is quite apparent from the way the club has fared this season that Jurgen Klopp has several other areas to prioritize, the German gaffer might still go for the striker considering injury troubles with Daniel Sturridge.
Klopp likes players who can perform intricate passes to get through opposition’s defence and Teodorczyk is certainly capable of dropping deep and exchanging passes with his fellow attackers. That being said, he is also capable of hanging around the box and scoring poacher’s goals.
The Polish striker is known for his pace and power. He also has really good aerial ability and is quite aggressive with the ball. The striker has also managed an impressive 5 goals in 11 Europa League games.
Teodorczyk is an excellent finisher and is often deployed with another striker at Anderlecht. He also has the ability to hold the ball in tight areas and can drag along a defender or two for his team-mates to exploit the central area. He is really good with the ball and can manoeuvre through defenders with a trick or two and can finish the moves off quite well. He doesn’t keep the ball for long and takes his chances if he is given the luxury of even a little space.
Liverpool will surely need to move in quickly for the Polish International if they are to acquire his services. With decent experience with his International team Poland as well, he certainly has the potential to do well in the Premier League. Despite other clubs being linked, Liverpool has got to be one of the top destinations for him.
