The Merseyside club are reportedly closely monitoring the development of Real Madrid winger Rodrygo, who hasn’t managed to settle down in the Whites colours. Brazil international has been going through an inconsistent phase with his present club this term, in spite of emerging as a promising prospect in the French manager’s plans.
Indeed, after joining the club in 2019, Goes was considered as one of the brightest emerging prospects, who could strengthen the attacking options of the defending La Liga champions. In fact, Rodrygo enjoyed a memorable goal-scoring debut against Osasuna in the 2019/20 season.
The 20-year-old winger belted an excellent hat-trick against Galatasaray in the UCL fixture that same campaign. And due to those staggering displays, he became an overnight sensation within no time. But since then, the Brazilian forward has been struggling to find his rhythm and failed to kick on as expected.
In his 17 games across all tournaments this campaign, Goes has just scored once and served six assists, which does not justify the promise that he possesses, although he has been out injured for some time. Meanwhile, the Reds will be looking to reinvent and rebuild after what has been a difficult season thus far.
Sitting sixth in the PL table, Liverpool’s defensive fragility has not only been the sole problem for the Reds this term, with their attacking contingent also not firing on all cylinders on a consistent basis.
Salah has been doing most of the heavy-lifting in the attacking department for the Reds, with both Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino not enjoying their best seasons in front of goal.
