Liverpool have already signed a top striker in the form of Darwin Nunez this summer, but the Uruguayan wasn’t the only striker on the radar at Anfield.
The Merseysiders have been looking to sign Alexander Isak and reports say they have submitted a bid to sign him.
New – Liverpool said £38.4m plus an offer of £4.3m would be accepted – record
According to an article covered by Mundo Deportivo today (news image provided below), Real Madrid could end up losing strikers like Mariano, Maroyal and Asensio in the summer transfer window.
Therefore, to improve the attack, they are very interested in hiring the services of Isak from Real Sociedad and have asked to be informed of any offers from other clubs.
The Txuri-Urdin are seeking a £77m fee (€90m release clause). So far, there are no firm offers on the table to sign the Sweden international and according to MD, no club would come close to the mentioned amount.
As for the suitors, the Catalan outlet claim that Newcastle United have shown interest, on the other hand, Liverpool have submitted a grossly insufficient offer to sign Isak.
The value of the proposal isn’t mentioned by Mundo Deportivo but it’s possible they’re talking about a deal worth £60m (from the Reds) reported by the news source in March.
During the 2019-20 campaign, the 37-cap international started 6 games in the Copa Del Rey and directly contributed 9 goals (7 goals and 2 assists) to help Sociedad win the competition.
However, in the last campaign, the 22-year-old striker was out of form and scored just 6 goals in 26 league starts.
Location at Anfield
Having already splashed a hefty sum to land Darwin Nunez, who was La Liga Nos top scorer last season, the Reds are unlikely to spend big on another centre-forward.
There’s plenty of quality and depth when it comes to striking power with experienced stars like Jota and Firmino.
However, we lack depth on the flanks as there is no quality (natural) winger to cover for Mohamed Salah and Luis Diaz.
Who do you think Jurgen Klopp should sign to further strengthen the attack at Anfield?
