According to a recent report by the Daily Star, Liverpool are inching closer towards sealing a move for Munas Dabbur from Red Bull Salzburg. The same report has also claimed that the Reds are weighing up a €25m (£22m) move for the Israeli international. In a recent quote mentioned in Estadio Deportivo, the Austrian Bundesliga striker said, “I’m going to leave Salzburg in the next few days.”
The Nazareth born talent grew up playing football for his boyhood club Maccabi Ahi Nazareth prior to his move to Maccabi Tel Aviv in the summer of 2010. He rose to prominence at Tel Aviv and earned a switch to Grasshoppers back in 2014.
RB Salzburg decided to bring him to Austria in 2016 where he has been in prolific form after scoring 20 times while also creating six assists in 30 appearances for the Austrian heavyweights this term.
The 26-year-old has also earned 11 international caps for the Israel national team and has scored one goal for his country so far.
Dabbur is a well-rounded striker who is blessed with a lot of pace up top which helps him time his runs to the perfection behind the opposition defence. He is also an effective dribbler with the ball at his feet and has a knack for finding space inside the opposition penalty box. His record this season also proves that he is slowly turning himself into a prolific front man who can be ruthless in front of goal.
Despite having so many strengths, he still needs to work hard in the gym so that he has enough strength to cope with the physicality and high intensity of Premier League football. Jurgen Klopp can undoubtedly use a forward of Dabbur’s talents to increase competition for the likes of Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino, Daniel Sturridge and Divock Origi.
Liverpool are currently leading the Premier League standings with a four-point lead over Manchester City. So the Reds are in no urgent need to add to their squad. However, if the opportunity arises to bring Dabbur in for the right price, then Klopp should consider recruiting him as the Brugge forward will add some more depth to his squad which could help them challenge for major trophies in the coming months.
