Liverpool have made a remarkable start to their Premier League campaign and are currently sitting at the top of the table, having played a game more than their nearest challengers, Manchester City. The Reds have caught the eye with some glittering performances at both ends of the pitch. Jurgen Klopp’s men can currently boast one of the best defences in European football after conceding just four goals in their opening ten league matches of the season.
Although there were some question marks over their attacking credentials during this campaign with Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane initially struggling to get going in front of goal, the talented Liverpool trio has managed to turn things around and are now firing on all cylinders once again. Despite looking so strong, there is one area of his squad which Klopp could look to address by bringing in a suitable player during the winter transfer period.
Liverpool’s Creative Woes: A Potential Solution?
The Merseyside club are looking a bit short in the creative department up top so a player who would be a perfect fit to take up some of the playmaking duties at Anfield would be PSV Eindhoven’s Hirving Lozano. The Mexican sensation put in some majestic displays at the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia when he was representing his country against some of the best international sides in world football.
The PSV striker has also been quite prolific at the club level after finding the back of the net 11 times while setting up four goals in 15 matches for the Eredivisie heavyweights across all competitions. His latest contribution included a goal against Tottenham Hotspur in the UEFA Champions League on Wednesday night which has kept his side’s qualification hopes alive.
Why The Mexican Forward Could Be The Final Piece In Klopp’s Anfield Jigsaw?
Lozano has blistering pace and is more than capable of beating defenders in 1v1 situations. He is also a fantastic dribbler with the ball and has a keen eye for a telling pass in the final third. His link-up play is excellent in the opposition half which makes him a valuable asset for both PSV and Mexico.
The 23-year-old is a playmaker with outstanding technical ability, and he knows how to deliver a decisive pass inside the opposition penalty area. He would be a fantastic option for the Reds as he has the potential to form a fabulous partnership with the likes of Mane, Salah and Firmino, similar to how Phillipe Coutinho operated as part of the Liverpool ‘Fab Four’.
There is no doubt that Lozano would be a shrewd acquisition to the Liverpool frontline if Jurgen Klopp can manage to lure him to Merseyside in January.
