Liverpool have set their sights on a new striker.

“Liverpool manager Jürgen Klopp has identified Lewis Henrique (22, Real Betis) as a player to inject youth into the team’s attack,” Spanish outlet Fichajes reported on Tuesday. 메이저사이트

Signing a striker is one of Liverpool’s top targets this summer. Despite signing Darwin Núñez and Cody Gakpo last season, the Reds are desperate to find a replacement for Roberto Firmino.

Henrique has emerged as a potential signing. Henrique is a striker prospect who broke into Europe last season with Real Betis after excelling at Fluminense in Brazil.

His first season in Europe was less than stellar. Despite making 43 appearances across all competitions, he only scored three goals and provided seven assists, showing no real promise.

Not even Klopp thought so. According to the report, Klopp believes that Henrikh’s performance last season was just the beginning and that he still has a lot of potential to improve.

There will be competition for his signature. “Aston Villa manager Unai Emery has been linked with a move for Henrikh before Klopp,” the outlet said.

“Klopp is desperate to bring in a striker who will give him more options in attack next season and complement his other options.”
