Liverpool suffered a disappointing 3-2 defeat against West Bromwich Albion in the third round of the FA Cup at Anfield on Saturday, and Reds fans have urged their club to sign Leicester City attacker Riyad Mahrez before the January transfer window slams shut on Wednesday.
The loss against the Baggies was their second in the space of five days after they were beaten 1-0 by Premier League bottom side Swansea City at the Liberty Stadium on Monday night, and it remains to be seen whether manager Jurgen Klopp could yet dip into the transfer market in the remaining days of the window.
The Merseyside outfit are yet to replace Philippe Coutinho following his move to Barcelona, and it seems as though the Anfield faithful believe that Mahrez, who has scored eight goals and provided a further eight assists in 24 top flight appearances this season, could be the player to fill the void.
Liverpool supporters were quick to have their say on the Algerian winger via social media, and while one said “just sign Mahrez and save us from all these nightmares”, another said “sign him before it’s too late”.
Here is just a selection of the Twitter reaction…
Please Jürgen ? Just Sign Mahrez and save us from all these nightmares…
