Liverpool have strengthened their attack this summer by signing Solanke and Salah but they must sign a top star if Coutinho leaves.
The Brazilian international’s future is up in the air and reports suggest that the Merseysiders are eyeing a certain Spanish international if Phil departs.
According to Spanish source Don Balon, Liverpool are interested in signing Chelsea rebel Diego Costa.
The 28-year-old center forward was brilliant for the Blues in the last campaign and helped them win the title. He was also fantastic when Chelsea won the PL title in 2014/15 season under the management of Mourinho.
Costa featured in 35 league games for the Stamford Bridge club last season and directly contributed in 28 goals (20 goals and 8 assists). However, now Conte does not want him around and we can expect him to leave this summer.
As far as Liverpool are concerned, Klopp lacks quality and depth in his strike-force department. Since the departure of Suarez in 2014, no Liverpool striker has been able to score 20 league goals a season. Sturridge did manage that feat in the 2013-14 campaign but since then he has been injury prone.
The German manager has mainly opted to use Firmino, a natural playmaker, in the center forward position. In your opinion, should he sign Diego Costa?
Costa’s current deal with the West London side will expire in 2019 and he earns around $239,000-a-week (Star).
