Liverpool have identified a gem in Munas Dabbur as Roberto Firmino alternative

Jurgen Klopp has been keen to add strength in depth to his Liverpool squad and did so in the summer through the acquisitions of the likes of Xherdan Shaqiri, Naby Keita and Fabinho. Next up could be Munas Dabbur.

One area where there is a real lack of first team quality option is as a centre forward, where Roberto Firmino is supported by reserve options such as Daniel Sturridge and Divock Origi.

Now though, Football Whispers say that the club could make a move for Red Bull Salzburg’s prolific striker Munas Dabbur, who has notched 20 goals in 30 games this season.

The Israel international has shown his quality at the highest level by notching four goals in as many games in Champions League qualifying before scoring six in six in the Europa League group stages, including three against Celtic.

It is no surprise to see that Liverpool are reportedly scouting the striker given his form and he would certainly bring something different to Anfield with his battling strength as well as finesse in front of goal.

There can be little doubt that Firmino is the undisputed first choice, but an alternative could be needed and Dabbur may be the ideal candidate if available at a reasonable price.
