It’s fair to say that Liverpool ended the season with disappointment, with the Premier League title heading to Manchester City on the last day of the season prior to a 1-0 defeat to Real Madrid in the Champions League final.
Nonetheless, two trophies have been won this year and Jurgen Klopp is planning on another tilt at the league title for next season, when he will be aiming to stop the Man City juggernaut.
There could be plenty of transfer business happening, with the Anfield faithful looking forward to seeing what masterclasses the German can conjure up this summer.
Firmino has only scored 11 goals in all competitions in what has been a relatively poor season, whereas Jota’s tally of 21 means that Liverpool rely heavily on wingers like Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane for goals.
Danjuma made the move from Bournemouth to Villarreal last summer and has thrived in Spain, scoring 16 goals and registering four assists in all competitions.
The Dutchman is considered stylistically similar to Lewandowski on FBRef, and while both are like-minded centre forwards with a clear appetite for goals, the stats also prove that Danjuma could well be Liverpool’s answer to the Polish goal machine, who played under Klopp at Dortmund previously.
The Dutchman is only 25 and eight years younger than the Polish veteran, so there is no reason why the “exceptional” Villarreal frontman (in the words of former Bournemouth boss Jonathan Woodgate) can’t continually improve and reach the Bayern Munich star’s level at some point. If Liverpool can bring him to Anfield, Danjuma could be Klopp’s next version of the mercurial Lewandowski.
