Forget Asensio – Klopp Ready to Agree $56million Star Signing for Liverpool

Liverpool were rampant in the first half of the season and scored goals for fun. However, in the absence of star playmaker Sadio Mane, the Reds have not looked strong going forward in the second half of the campaign.

In such a scenario, the Reds must sign top quality attackers to improve the quality and depth of the department and a few top stars are linked with the club.

Not so long ago, we covered a report (via Diario Gol) claiming that the Merseysiders have made an offer for Real Madrid star Asensio, who would look to leave the Los Blancos if he does not get regular first team football.

Now, Liverpool are once again linked with Egyptian international and Roma star Mohamed Salah. Earlier this month, Goal were the ones to first mention that Liverpool want him. It seems that the interest is very serious.

Two days back, Italian source Il Messaggero also claimed that the five time European Champions want to lure the the African star. Moreover, CalcioMercato reported yesterday that Klopp is ready to sign the 24-year-old attacker and the Giallorossi want around 50 million euros ($56million) for their prized asset.

In all fairness, the Merseysiders should forget about signing Asensio and must secure the signature of Salah, who is in his peak years and has been in brilliant form for the Serie A side this season.

Marco Asensio, 21, has done well as a bench warmer for Real Madrid by scoring 9 goals and providing 4 assists in 37 games (18 starts). On the other hand, the former Basel star is one of the best players in the Italian league. Roma fans voted him as 2016’s best player (King Fut).

This season, in 35 starts in all competitions, Salah has directly contributed in no fewer than 32 goals (17 goals and 15 assists).

Liverpool lack pace in their attacking department and especially with Mane out, they have badly missed a speedy playmaker. The ex Chelsea attacker is renowned for his searing pace and has what it takes to be a hit under Klopp. In your opinion, should Liverpool sign Asensio or Salah?

    Salah all the way,only am disappointed in the land because Liverpool need him before signing for Chelsea but I don’t blame him but our club management so let make a deal fast because is going to give team like Chelsea a big pressure because the way he was treat show the what they are missing….for yes salah is the opinion but asensio is a fine player too if only livepool get the two and free sturrige and origi and get a natural striker like Mbappe,Otavio central midfielder infront of the defence from atlentico PR

    Salah is the right man for us to sharpen our attack. His combination with Phil, Mane Luam (if we can sign him) or Lallana would be something to watch.

    Salah is the ideal player with all this qualities a speedster possess. Arsenio on the other hand is a fine attacking option with precision and dribbling, as well as and eye for goal just like salah. The hefty transfer buyout clause is the problem for me. Will FSG pay over £50m for a single player? This I know has not been done since they took over, we can’t really make our mark when we only try to develop players and not bring in some world class players to the team. After salah or arsenio what happens? What about Luan?
