Liverpool are lacking quality and depth in their strike-force and Jurgen Klopp needs to strengthen the department by signing a proven quality goalscorer in the summer transfer window.
The German manager is also looking to sign talented youngsters and once again Nottingham Forest’s Ben Brereton is in the limelight.
Back in the month of January, the former Borussia Dortmund boss himself contacted the Championship side (via Mirror) to discuss a potential move for the 17-year-old center forward.
Now, according to the Sun, Nottingham rate the teenager around 10 million pounds and the Reds are eager to secure his signing this summer by meeting the mentioned asking price.
After scoring 15 goals in 20 games for the U-23 Forest side (Mirror), Ben got promoted to the senior team this season and he has produced impressive performances.
In 8 league appearances so far, the English forward has played 415 minutes and directly contributed in 5 goals (3 goals and 2 assists) i.e. averaging a goal/assist every 83 minutes.
Ben could be a great signing for the Merseysiders in the years to come but he will definitely not get straight into the starting XI and solve Liverpool’s conundrum.
Klopp needs a top quality center forward who will immediately improve his strike-force and score at least 20 league goals a season.
