Roberto Firmino is not quite cutting it at Liverpool. Whether his legs have aged through the ravages of time or whether the Brazilian has simply lost his magical touch, remains a mystery. One thing for sure, the Reds probably need to add some extra ammunition to their attacking quartet in order to escape their current rut in front of goal.

A new striker is imperative in the summer.

One that could bring more goals, A forward that has an eye and knack for scoring and putting the ball into the back of the net.

Someone whose goal-scoring instincts are innate.

Someone like Sasa Kalajdzic.

Liverpool need a change.

The Stuttgart forward has been a revelation in the Bundesliga this season. He has contributed to 17 goals in 24 matches (13 goals and 4 assists) in a hugely exciting Stuttgart side.

The Austrian international has come out to speak of his adoration  for the Reds and his huge dream of moving to the club.

Sasa Kalajdzic said the following via the Liverpool Echo:

"“I feel completely at home at VfB, but it would be a really tough decision because I really like Liverpool,” he told BILD.“This club is simply special to me. When I was a kid, I saw the Champions League final in 2005 when Liverpool came back from 3-0 down against Milan to win. That gripped me.“The last time I went to a Liverpool game with my brother, I really kitted myself out: I bought myself a scarf, jersey, cap and a mug.”"

Those are huge remarks from one of the most exciting in-form young players in Europe. And it is sure to alert the attention of the Reds and Jurgen Klopp.

Kalajdzic is a physically imposing forward. He is not blessed with an abundance of pace but he is exceptional in the air and has an excellent eye for goal.

The tall forward could add an extra dimension to the Reds game. His excellent heading ability could provide the perfect outlet for Trent Alexandor-Arnold crosses which are often unable to be met by the Reds’ current strikers.

Kalajdzic’s passion for the shirt could also be a brilliant bonus. The Austrian understands the core of the club and he could easily win the Kop over just with by his sheer passion.

Next. Liverpool want the next Van Dijk from Turkey. dark
