Liverpool are interested in signing a new striker and Benfica star Raul Jimenez has been in the limelight.
Squawka were the first source to break the news this month and claimed that the Reds want to sign the Benfica star who is rated around 22 million pounds.
Recent update (Mirror via Record) suggests that the Reds hope to beat off interest from the Chinese Super League to hire the services of the Mexican international.
Raul is a versatile star who has been deployed in multiple attacking positions. He mainly plays as a center forward and as a secondary striker but has also effectively played on the flanks and as a central attacking midfielder.
This season, the 25-year-old star has featured in 10 league games for the Primeira Liga champions, scored 5 goals and also provided 1 assist.
There are different reports about the player’s asking price. Record claim that €50million should be enough to convince Benfica.
On the other hand, earlier this month, O Jogo claimed that the Portuguese giants lured Raul for €22million and now president Luís Filipe Vieira wants over €60million for the player.
As far as Liverpool’s strike-force is concerned, the likes of Divock Origi and Daniel Sturridge are fit at the moment. However, Klopp mainly prefers Firmino in the center forward position when the likes of Coutinho and Mane are around.
In your opinion, should the Reds break the bank to sign Jimenez?
