The coming summer transfer window is unquestionably a vital one for Liverpool. Whilst they showed fantastic form in the first half of the season, the Reds slowed up throughout the remainder of the campaign – and they now have the congestion of Champions League fixtures to contend with as well.
In a nutshell, Jurgen Klopp must improve a squad that had to wait until the final day of the campaign to qualify for the Champions League and will now take part in it too, with the central striker role perhaps being the most obvious position requiring his attention.
Whilst Roberto Firmino has proved an incredibly effective unorthodox option, Liverpool lack that out-and-out goalscorer with the exception of Daniel Sturridge – whose future on Merseyside appears to be unclear.
Two names have already been mooted in the press. While The Express claim Liverpool could swoop for Alexandre Lacazette after netting 28 times for Lyon this season, The Independent have reported on their interest in Red Bull Leipzig prodigy Timo Werner.
With that in mind, we asked Liverpool fans earlier this week who their club should sign – the eleven-cap Frenchman or the free-scoring German. And according to our poll, the majority of Liverpool fans – 60% – would prefer to see Klopp swoop for Lacazette this summer.
