Liverpool’s attacking unit is already fearsome enough.
Brazilian pair Roberto Firmino and Philippe Coutinho are both superbly talented players while Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah are both fast as lightning.
But come January there may be a new sprint king at Anfield.
The Express are reporting that Borussia Dortmund speedster Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is at the top of Jurgen Klopp’s transfer shortlist.
The Gabonese forward is one of very few players who earth who could beat Mane and Salah in a race and the thought of all three of launching a counterattack may be enough to force some of the Premier League’s older defenders to consider retirement.
Aubameyang played under Klopp for two seasons at Borussia Dortmund and his relationship with the Bundesliga club has soured in recent times.
Earlier this season he was disciplined for arriving late to training and has refused to publicly rule out a move away on numerous occasions.
Aubameyang was sent off for Dortmund when they were 4-0 up against rivals Schalke last weekend and could only watch on as the game finished 4-4.
Chelsea, Arsenal and Real Madrid may also provide competition for Liverpool though the Klopp factor represents a significant boost in the Anfield club’s chances.
Daniel Sturridge is expected to leave the club in search of regular football with the World Cup on the horizon.
While many Liverpool fans will be excited about the prospect of signing Aubameyang, a man who has scored 96 goals in all competitions since the start of 2015/16, most are hoping to improve in defence.
Virgil van Dijk may finally make the long-rumoured switch from Southampton if the two clubs can agree terms, as they have often in the last few years.
