Liverpool fans want Premier League striker signed after Jurgen Klopp embrace

Toney has taken the Premier League by storm. He has two goals and two assists from his six games, with Brentford looking at home in the top-flight.

He may not have the goal haul that he’d like at this stage but his performances have been largely impressive.

The all-action striker works himself into the ground for his teammates and that hasn’t gone unnoticed during 2021/22.

Toney was in fine form last season. He netted a staggering 33 times and claimed 10 assists, with Brentford winning the Championship play-offs.

Would Klopp take Toney at Liverpool?

Who knows. He could be the sort of player who could thrive in the current system at Anfield.

Toney works tremendously hard for his team and with his clinical finishing, he should score plenty of goals at a bigger club.

At 25 he fits the profile of a Liverpool signing just nicely and Klopp could probably do a lot worse than sign Toney.

Perhaps the only stumbling block right now would be whether he can do it consistently in the Premier League.

If he can, then a move to a big club looks inevitable at some stage of his career.

What have Liverpool fans been saying about Toney?

It would seem as though plenty enjoyed Toney’s heartwarming moment with Klopp at the end of Saturday’s game.

The Reds faithful are unanimous in suggesting the club could do with another forward player – with some fancying Toney.

Here is what some Liverpool supporters have said about the Brentford striker following Saturday’s 3-3 draw.
