Liverpool Football Club has always had a rich pedigree of striking talents. From striking legends like Kenny Dalglish, Ian Rush, Robbie Fowler to recent striking sensations like Fernando Torres and Luiz Suarez, Liverpool had in their DNA to have a lethal striker spearheading their attack. Although since the departure of Suarez and arrival of Klopp, the goalscoring responsibility has been shared among the front three, this season in the form of Firmino, Coutinho, Mane. However, this doesn't mean that Liverpool will stop looking to add to their firepower. They already submitted as huge £42 million bid for Real Madrid winger. And now are targeting this world-class striking sensation.
Ian Rush, Robbie Fowler, Kenny Dalglish, Fernando Torres, Luis Suarez are all a part of it.
It seems Origi and Sturridge cannot cope up with the pressure of being the striker of the most successful English club. Although Origi is scoring occasional goals these days, Sturridge cannot shake off his injury problems. With Champions League looming over them, Liverpool is on the hunt for fresh striking talent.
Alexandre Lacazette has been on the watch-list of European's elite since the past few years and why not? The French forward from Lyon has scored 29 goals in just 34 appearances and seems he's just a notch below the level of Lewandowski and Suarez.
Liverpool will do their best to use Champions League to lure Lacazette over a summer move to Anfield.
Lyon has slapped a price tag of £65 million on the hitman and it seems evident he's bound to leave the club one way or another to join a European elite. According to RMC in France, Liverpool has once again enquired Lyon about their "Long term" target Lacazette. Although his contract is valid till 2019, Lyon won't shy away from listening to offers. It remains to be seen can Liverpool land Lacazette amidst the huge competition for the striker.
A few weeks ago, reports broke out that Liverpool was in for the Arsenal winger after it was reported that he could be tempted to a move to Anfield. The winger failed to live up to the hype when he initially arrived and it seemed that after 6 years playing for London club he would be heading for the exit.
On where he sees himself beyond next season, Oxlade-Chamberlain told Complex: 'My personal ambitions are always to play as well as I can and be as professional as I can for Arsenal and obviously stay in and around the England squad as well.
'For me as an attacker it's scoring and creating goals and helping the team to win, so I'll just be focused on doing that as well as I can for my club.'
Yesterday, it was reported that Liverpool was in for Marco Asensio. Liverpool admittedly submitted
£42 million bid. Although the Spanish giants won't let go of their 'wonder kid' easily, Liverpool are adamant to land him.
