Despite the looming UEFA Champions League final against Real Madrid, Liverpool fans are already looking ahead to the summer transfer window, excited about the side’s continuing growth under manager Jurgen Klopp.
One player they appear interested in is West Ham United stand-out Marko Arnautovic.
The former Stoke man has been in superb form this season after his reported £20m move to the London Stadium last July.
With ten goals and five assists in the Premier League this term, he’s been absolutely crucial in helping the Irons beat the drop to the English Championship.
He was again in excellent form on Saturday, assisting his side’s opening goal in a 2-0 victory away to Leicester City.
That was enough to ignite discussion amongst Liverpool fans about the prospect of signing him this summer, with many believing he could be excellent back-up to Brazilian Roberto Firmino.
Fans took to Twitter to share their thoughts…
Sign Arnautovic at all costs (£30m) this summer please @LFC

FWIW, I happen to think he’s a brilliant player. Pace and power in abundance. He can terror any defender in the league on his day, and he has plenty of football intelligence. We live in an age where squad players cost £30m+ and I’d take him any day.

I'd have Arnautovic at Liverpool, he's an absolute nightmare for defenders when he's up for it.

We need depth in attack, and if Klopp wants to go for premier league experience, I really would not mind Marko Arnautovic. He could be a beast under Klopp

Naaaah. Too inconsistent, would rather have Arnautovic as back up to Firmino after seeing played as a striker

Unpopular opinion here would take Marko Arnautovic as a backup for Firmino. Playing really good since deployed as striker. Improve our squad depth too.
