Liverpool have been without a world class goal-scorer since Luis Suarez left the Anfield club to join Barcelina in 2014.
Since then, the Merseysiders have signed strikers like Ings, Origi, Balotelli and Benteke. The England international has so far proved to be injury prone and Divock warmed the bench last season. On the other hand, Mario and Chrisitian were sold last summer.
The Reds do have a quality attacking department with top playmakers around, but their strike-force lack quality and depth. In the past three seasons, Sturridge has mainly been on the treatment table and has only managed to start 25 games in the Premier League.
Klopp mainly opted to use Firmino in the center forward position last season. The Samba star was effective but it must be remembered that he is not an out and out striker.
After the 2013-14 campaign, no Liverpool player has managed to score 20+ league goals in a season. The importance of a clinical finisher cannot be ignored.
In such a scenario, the German boss must seriously sign a world class center forward to seriously challenge for the title next season.
Chelsea have Costa, Man City have Aguero, Spurs have Kane, Arsenal have signed Lacazette and Man United have lured Lukaku. Now is the time that Liverpool must splash the cash to sign a top striker and in my opinion, they have to hire the services of Aubameyang.
Klopp was the one who brought the Gabon international to Dortmund and under his management, the striker excelled big time. The 28-year-old star is one of the best strikers in the world and last season, he scored no fewer than 40 goals in all competitions.
The Bundesliga side are prepared to offload him this summer and as per Sky sources, they have offered him to Chelsea for a fee of €78million. Klopp must intervene and use his influence to sign Aubameyang from his former club.
