Liverpool Plotting Move For Forward But Will Face Man United Competition: Right Choice For The Reds?

According to a recent report by Calciomercato, Liverpool are eager to make a move to secure the signature of RB Salzburg striker Erling Haaland. However, the same source has also claimed that the Reds will face stiff competition from Juventus, Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur in pursuit of the Austrian Bundesliga youngster.

Haaland’s Stellar Form In The Austrian Top-Flight

The Norwegian starlet came through the youth ranks of Bryne FK before going on to join Molde FK back in 2017. He finally managed to make a positive impression for the Norwegian outfit as he scored 20 goals in 50 matches for them on all fronts. His incredible goal-scoring performances for Molde earned him a move to Salzburg where he has established himself as a prolific goal-scorer.

He is currently one of the hottest commodities in European football so Jurgen Klopp will do well to lure him away from the Red Bull Arena. Haaland has the potential to be a world-class player in his position in the coming years.

The Norwegian whizkid has begun this campaign on fire after netting 18 goals and providing five assists in 11 appearances for the Austrian champions. Haaland also managed to find the back of the net versus Liverpool in the UEFA Champions League at Anfield. 

What Are The Norwegian Starlet’s Best Attributes?

Haaland has represented Norway at various youth levels and has also earned two international caps for his nation thus far. He has decent pace in his locker and can make some perfectly timed runs behind the opposition defence. The Norwegian youngster can protect the ball well in the final third and has shown that he can win most of the 50-50 aerial duels up top due to his remarkable upper body strength.

Is Haaland The Right Choice For Klopp?

The addition of a striker of Haaland’s potential will undeniably bolster Klopp’s attacking options at Anfield. The European champions currently have Roberto Firmino, Divock Origi and Rhian Brewster as the only natural centre-forwards in Klopp’s disposal at Anfield.

Hence adding a fresh face like Haaland in the attacking third will help the Merseyside giants to compete for multiple trophies in the coming years. The 19-year-old still has a lot of time to develop his game so that he can be a top striker someday.
