When you look at the creative talent at Liverpool that took Manchester City apart last weekend – the likes of Roberto Firmino, Philippe Coutinho and Adam Lallana – it might be difficult for Liverpool to squeeze any more playmakers into the side.
But, in Klopp you trust, and if he wants another attacking midfielder then Liverpool fans will surely be right behind him.
Talksport writes that Liverpool are keen to sign a prolific young midfielder:
Liverpool are poised to make a bid for Empoli star Ricardo Saponara next summer.
The Empoli star has a remarkable nine assists and four goals already this season and his overall stats since returning to Empoli (he went to Milan in between) read 10 goals in 23 games – the sort of record that most top level strikers would be delighted with.
If his form continues apace Liverpool won’t be the only keen party and the report also credits Roma and Juventus with an interest.
While the Italian hasn’t yet broken into the senior international side he has played reguarly for the U21s having hit 3 goals in 22 games for the youth side.
He looks like a shoe-in for continued success and it’s easy to see why he is getting so much hype at present.
Let’s have a look at some of his better moments in his young career.
Liverpool fans: would he get into this current first team or do you see him as more of a squad member in the shorter term?
