Liverpool fans react on Twitter to Patrick Bamford reports

A number of Liverpool fans have taken to Twitter to react to reports from The Athletic concerning Leeds United striker Patrick Bamford.

It would be no surprise to see the champions target a new striker in the summer. Mo Salah is one of the only players who has scored more goals than Bamford in the top flight this year.

However, he is their only player in double figures this season. Both Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane have endured underwhelming campaigns on Merseyside.

With that in mind, here is how some of the Liverpool fans have reacted to the links…
