Few Liverpool fans were concerned when Jurgen Klopp sold Christian Benteke last summer, but it has left his Reds side lacking a genuinely diverse Plan B in attack for the majority of the season – something that could prove particularly detrimental in the coming weeks with Sadio Mane now ruled out for the rest of the campaign.
Earlier this week, Liverpool were unexpectedly linked with a target man addition in the form of Leeds United’s Chris Wood, who entered the latest round of Championship’s fixtures as the division’s top scorer with 24 goals in 39 second-tier outings.
IndyKalia and 90min have never been the most reliable of sources, but following such a strong season from the New Zealand international, we felt to put the question to Liverpool fans earlier this week – would they back a summer swoop for the in-form front-man?
But perhaps a consequence of some top flight snobbery, perhaps realistically recognising the gulf between the Championship and Anfield, 60% of Liverpool fans voted against a bid for Wood in Football FanCast’s exclusive poll.
