Klopp makes huge decision to keep Liverpool star despite Werner splurge

February 17, 2020 • admin

Liverpool’s potential moves for brand spanking new attackers this summer won’t affect Roberto Firmino’s future at the club, consistent with reports.

Having created arguably the deadliest front three in Europe with Firmino, Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane, Liverpool are heavily linked in recent months with shaking things up within the final third.

Borussia Dortmund’s Jadon Sancho is about for a busy summer, with Jurgen Klopp’s Reds linked, along side Chelsea and Manchester United, with a move for the britain star.

However, RB Leipzig hitman Timo Werner is that the subject of perhaps the strongest links to Liverpool, with Klopp said to be keen to secure a move for his compatriot.

Such reports are met with claims that one among Liverpool‘s current stars could move , with Bayern Munich credited with interest in bringing Firmino back to the Bundesliga.

According to The Athletic journalist James Pearce, though, any Liverpool move to usher in new attackers won’t be done at the expense of their current crop.

Pearce adds that Werner or Sancho will only be delivered to Liverpool to go with the choices Klopp already has at his disposal.

Liverpool are shrewd with their business in recent seasons, spending only what they need and doing so on players who have improved the team.

Philippe Coutinho was sold to Barcelona for around £142m in January 2018, with the cash wont to fund moves for goalkeeper Alisson Becker and centre-back Virgil van Dijk.

The pair are two of Klopp‘s best players since their arrival and played a key part in Liverpool’s Champions League triumph last term.

Indeed, an equivalent are often said this season, with Liverpool 25 points clear at the highest of the Premier League table needing five wins from their final 12 games to clinch the title.

Mane was the hero from the bench on Saturday to assist the Reds preserve their unbeaten league run, scoring the winner against Norwich at a blustery Carrow Road.

Liverpool huffed and puffed within the half but Senegal international Mane netted to earn his side a 17th successive league win.
