The Merseyside club are in free fall, with their attacking line having gone stale. They’re now being linked with a PSG forward in an attempt to freshen things up. Reds are prepared to make an astronomical offer to prise Neymar away from Paris. Reds attacking line is in dire need of a reshuffle after turning stale in recent months.
While they have fired Liverpool to great success during the German manager’s tenure, it seems as though, at least as a threesome, their race has been run. It would come as no shock if the Reds looked to add a new face or two in the front-line, even when Diogo Jota returns from injury.
There’s doubt over the long-term futures of Divock Origi and Xherdan Shaqiri, while Takumi Minamino has just ever netted one PL goal. All signs point to FSG giving Jurgen Klopp the funds to bolster his attack, but the report have mentioned a name that we didn’t expect to see in the conversation, Neymar.
While Brazil international does have only a year left to run on his deal, the feeling in PSG is that Pochettino’s arrival has turned the tide, with Neymar now expected to sign a renewal. However, the 28-year-old star will have a decision to make, as their report claims Reds are keen and are willing to offer as much as €128m to get the deal done.
That would be a club-record fee for the Merseyside giants and it has to be said would also be hugely out of character, so we have to take this one with a pinch of salt.
