Liverpool’s 18 game unbeaten run in all competitions was ended by Swansea City on Monday night. Next up, the Merseysiders will collide against West Brom in the FA Cup and will hope to get back to winning ways.
As far as the transfers are concerned, the Reds must splash the cash to improve the quality and depth of the team.
According to a report covered by Duncan Castles (Yahoo Sport UK), Liverpool have opened talks over the transfer of Brazilian international and Gremio star Luan.
The Samba star scored 15 goals and provided 6 assists in 32 appearances for Gremio last season.
The 24-year-old forward can play anywhere in the attacking third but he mainly plays as a secondary striker. If Liverpool end up luring him then Klopp should utilize him behind Roberto Firmino.
Luan was recently voted South American Player of the Year and as per the provided Yahoo Sport UK link, he has got a release clause of €18million.
So far, Liverpool have only signed Virgil van Dijk in the January transfer window. The Dutch international scored on his debut for the team in the FA Cup against arch rivals Everton.
The Reds still have not replaced Philippe Coutinho, who left the Anfield club to join Barca this month. Someone like Lemar has got the quality to replace the Brazilian. Duncan Castles has mentioned that Liverpool do have an agreement in place with the French attacker but they have refused to meet Monaco’s huge asking price of €100million.
