Liverpool’s attack could hardly look any more spectacular right now.
Jurgen Klopp’s side have scored ten goals in their last two league games and are sitting pretty at the top of the Premier League table.
There’s no doubt that they look like contenders, but the one concern is that they do not currently have an out-and-out striker who is capable of delivering goals week in, week out.
Daniel Sturridge still seems a little out of favour with Klopp, and the 27-year-old is yet to score in the league this season.
Philippe Coutinho, Sadio Mane, Adam Lallana, and Roberto Firmino have been spearheading the Reds’ attack and to great effect, but it surely wouldn’t hurt to have a more consistent forward among their ranks.
In that vein, they are plotting to sign striker Sardar Azmoun, at least according to the Guardian.
The FC Rostov could come in January, with the situation all the more urgent following the news that Danny Ings is out for the rest of the season.
Mane is also headed to the African Cup of Nations almost to coincide with the opening of the transfer window, so Klopp will be keen to ensure his side aren’t left short.
Everton and Stoke are also reportedly interested in the Iran international.
