There has been no shortage of attacking players being linked with a move to Liverpool.
Ever since the club’s proposed move for Lyon playmaker Nabil Fekir hit a snag, numerous names have been touted in the media as possible alternative targets.
One man that has not been mentioned in the gossip columns is Sunderland’s Wahbi Khazri.
The 27-year-old does not particularly stand out as a top option for Jurgen Klopp, but following his performance for Tunisia against Belgium at the World Cup, some fans have taken notice.
Khazri was on the losing end of a 5-2 scoreline, but he did manage to find the back of the net, as well as create an assist.
Given that Tunisia lost to England 2-1 in their opening Group G clash, it is likely that the nation will be dumped out of the tournament before the knockout rounds.
During Saturday’s match against Belgium, Khazri had a mixed performance.
In some moments, the midfielder was the best player on the pitch for his team, but for others he displayed poor decision-making, which prompted criticism from BBC commentator Phil Neville.
On Twitter, though, plenty of Liverpool fans liked what they saw.
The sight of Khazri picking the ball out of the net to race back for the restart, when his team are three goals behind with thirty seconds to play, is the image of the World Cup for me. Never give up hope in the face of reality, folks.
