Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp 'very interested' in £25m swoop to 'replace' Roberto Firmino


Liverpool have big plans in the next transfer window despite having a quiet one in the summer. Jurgen Klopp wants to improve his attack long-term and has found the ideal replacement for Roberto Firmino.

Liverpool are ready to ramp up their efforts and sign Nice star Amine Gouiri as soon as possible after receiving a direct order from Klopp.

The German is keen on bolstering his squad amid some problems with his depth while also keeping an eye on the long-term project.

The Reds have one of the most terrific attacks in the Premier League with Firmino deployed in the middle of Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah.

Though they have already reaped the rewards from freshening up the trio with Diogo Jota improving their squad already.

But past that, there are some problems with Divock Origi the only other striker, who has fallen out of favour under Klopp.

Liverpool tried to sell him in the transfer window to no avail while time is catching up with some players.

Firmino will turn 30 next month and while he is no way over the hill just yet, Klopp is aware that he will need to find the ideal replacement soon.

According to Fichajes, Nice forward Gouiri is being primed by the Anfield boss as the perfect player to fill the Brazilian’s boots.

The France Under-21 international was signed by the Ligue 1 club from Lyon in the summer of 2020 and proved to be a fine purchase.

The 21-year-old scored 16 times for Nice in all competitions and has been valued at £25m but it is likely Liverpool will have to sell before bringing new players in.

It comes after a quiet transfer window for the Reds in the summer with Ibrahima Konate the only arrival despite losing Georginio Wijnaldum, Harry Wilson, Xherdan Shaqiri and Marko Grujic.

Many fans were unhappy with the lack of action, especially with the likes of Manchester United, Manchester City and Chelsea improving.
