Liverpool have improved their attacking midfield by signing players like Mane and Wijnaldum this summer. However, the Reds have not reinforced their strike-force as yet.
The likes of Benteke and Balotelli must be offloaded, moreover, star striker Daniel Sturridge is out with a hip injury. In such a scenario, the Merseysiders must secure the signing of a top goalscorer before the transfer window closes.
Liverpool have been interested in signing Sporting CP center forward Islam Slimani who had a release clause of 30 million euros in his contract (expired in June). Back in June, reports suggested that the Reds made an offer of 25 million euros to secure his signature (Noticias Minuto).
Now, Klopp has got a clear opportunity to seal his signing because the Algerian international has handed in a transfer request (Express via O Jogo).
Last season, the 28-year-old African star scored 27 league goals in 33 appearances. Overall, he netted 31 goals in 46 games for the Primeira Liga side in the last campaign.
In all fairness, Jurgen Klopp must act swiftly and hire his services as soon as possible because Liverpool clearly lack a clinical finisher at the moment.
