Liverpool Ready to Finally Get “Quality” $42million Star Signing Done

Liverpool have been brilliant in the attack this season but Jurgen Klopp still needs to add more quality and depth to the department due to ongoing injury concerns.

Danny Ings is out for the rest of the season and we still do not know for how long an injury prone Daniel Sturridge will be out for. Moreover, star playmaker Coutinho is out injured as well and Sadio Mane will leave for the AFCON next month.

Therefore, the German boss must reinforce his attack and a few strikers are linked with Liverpool. Reports have linked Liverpool with rising Celtic star (via Glasgow Live) Moussa Dembele and now a familiar name is in the limelight.

Javier Hernandez UnitedBack in January 2016, Liverpool were heavily linked with a move to sign former Manchester United star Javier Hernandez (via The Times). Now reports indicate that Reds are looking to finally sign him.

According to Mirror, Liverpool are preparing a move to sign the Mexican international who has a release clause of 33.5million pounds ($42million) in his contract.

The 28-year-old striker has won two Premier League titles with the Red Devils and currently plays for Bayer Leverkusen.

Chicharito is a proven quality goalscorer and recently one of the best strikers of all time in the form of Ronaldo has praised him. Last month, the Brazilian legend claimed (The News MX):

“For me he is a big talent. Wherever he has gone he has scored a lot of goals. There is no doubt he has a lot of quality,

Hernandez was in top form for the Bundesliga side last season. He netted 26 goals and provided 5 assists in 43 appearances. This season, he has scored 7 goals and provided 2 assists in 20 games.

In your opinion, should Liverpool sign Javier Hernandez?

    Good grief, NO! He failed at United and, whilst he can score goals in lesser leagues around Europe I doubt very much if he will be successful in the frantic pace of OUR league when he’s already failed in it once.
    Also, the fee is mind-numbing. No matter how you look at it £33m is a lot of dosh and this year he’s scored one goal, more-or-less, every three games. Bring him to England, with the pace of the game, and that is going to be one-in-five . . . not good enough.
    Who should we go for? God knows, there aren’t any obvious candidates other than Celtic’s Dembele . . . unless Harry Kane admits to being a Liverpool fan and tells us he’s got a £10m buy-out clause hidden away in his contract. Dembele MIGHT happen, Kane won’t, but if we concentrate our resources on solving the problems at the back our attacking prowess might just be enough. We are, after all, scoring more than anybody else but we just can’t stop conceding.
