Liverpool should rival Barcelona for centre-forward Luka Jovic

Liverpool are still right in the hunt for Premier League and Champions League glory this season, but regardless of the outcome they should look to continue strengthening in the summer.

Jurgen Klopp is building something special at Anfield, but many agree the Reds need to add a creative midfielder and another area they should try improve is at striker.

Roberto Firmino is a quality option for the Merseyside club in attack, but the team needs more competition other than Divock Origi or Daniel Sturridge to really cement their spot at the elite level.

One man that should crop up on the Liverpool radar is brilliant centre-forward Luka Jovic, who has been in brilliant form for Eintracht Frankfurt this season during his loan spell from Benfica.

According to the Guardian, Eintracht have already agreed to sign the 21-year-old permanently at the end of the season and would demand over £56million for his sale.

 

It is understood that Barcelona are preparing a £43million offer for the striker after his impressive displays in the Bundesliga and want to start talks in the next few weeks.

Jovic is a more traditional centre-forward with a physical presence and power, which has seen him torment defences this campaign.

He’s made 36 appearances this season for Eintracht across all competitions, scoring 22 goals and supplying seven assists in return.

The Serbia international has the potential to become one of Europe’s leading strikers in years to come if he keeps developing and Jurgen Klopp should consider making him an Anfield target.

Liverpool could be even more explosive going forward if they add Jovic to their ranks.
