Liverpool supporters are not happy with the lack of signings in the summer transfer window. The Reds must act swiftly to secure the key transfer targets or they will lose them to other top teams.
According to reports (Mirror via BuzzSports), Liverpool are leading the race to sign Moroccan attacker Sofiane Boufal from French side Lille.
The 22-year-old African attacker had a brilliant last season with the Ligue 1 club and has attracted interest from top clubs. Liverpool have monitored him for quite some time and it is reported that a fee of 20 million Euros will be enough to lure the versatile playmaker to Anfield (Daily Star via Foot Mercato).
The former Angers attacker featured in 35 games in all competitions for Lille last season and directly contributed in no fewer than 16 goals (12 goals and 4 assists).
Boufal is naturally a central attacking midfielder but Lille have mainly utilized him effectively on the flanks and that is where he will most likely play for the Reds.
Here is how Liverpool will line up with Sofiane Boufal if he does end up joining the Anfield club.
