Liverpool Identify New €25M Signing To Deputize For Firmino, Jota

Liverpool are reportedly going to make their move for RB Salzburg forward Patson Daka, according.

The Reds’ previously dynamic and dangerous front three – Sadio Mane, Roberto Firmino and Mohamed Salah – have failed to perform as a collective.

As a result, it would be no surprise if Liverpool looked to recruit in that area this summer, with Don Balon claiming that Patson Daka is on their wish-list.

The 22-year-old has been hugely prolific for RB Salzburg this campaign.

Daka has an extraordinary scoring record for RB Salzburg, with Don Balon reporting that his valuation is in the region of €25M, making him a highly affordable option for the champions.

If Divock Origi were to depart this summer, Liverpool will need to sign a new centre-forward, if only to deputise for Firmino and Diogo Jota.

The Zambian International may well be that man.
