Report: Liverpool now want to sign teenage attacker Haaland called ‘the biggest talent in the world’

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp will know that some of his biggest stars will soon no longer be at their peaks.

Klopp has built an incredible squad, but some of his most important players are now 30 over above.

A report from Sport Bild suggests Liverpool are very much looking to the future in the transfer window.

The likes of Harvey Elliott, Fabio Carvalho and Calvin Ramsay could be in Liverpool’s first team for the next decade.

Club record signing Darwin Nunez is only 23, and has a bright future ahead of him.

However, the likes of Thiago, Virgil van Dijk and Mohamed Salah, although extremely talented, are unlikely to improve in the future.

According to Sport Bild, Liverpool have now set their sights on Dortmund forward Youssoufa Moukoko, and want to sign the young striker.

Moukoko is the definition of a wonderkid, making his Dortmund debut the day after his 16th birthday.

He’s used to playing with people much older than him, having made his under-17 debut for the German club aged 12.

He’s now a regular in Dortmund’s first team, and has been tasked with replacing the almost irreplaceable Erling Haaland.

Liverpool want to sign Moukoko

Speaking on Haaland, the incredible Norwegian is a big fan of Moukoko’s.

Haaland made way for Moukoko when he made his Bundeliga debut nearly two years ago.

His work was done that day, having already scored four goals against Hertha Berlin.

This put no pressure on the young German who broke the Bundesliga record for youngest ever player.

In an interview with the Bundesliga’s official website after his debut, Haaland was full of praise for Moukoko.

“I think he’s the biggest talent in the world right now,” Haaland said.

“He’s 16 years and one day old, that’s amazing. He has a big career ahead of him. We’re lucky to have him.”

Although Klopp will hope Nunez has a bright future at Liverpool, there’s a reason they might also want to sign Moukoko.

The Uruguayan has looked rash in front of goal, and some of his decision making has been criticised.

He has produced some great finishes in his short Liverpool career, and his teammates are trying to get him on the ball as much as possible.

However, Moukoko is a different type of forward, capable of powerful strikes beyond his years already and a clinical finisher.

Liverpool would be picking up one of world football’s most exciting players.

Given the injury to Timo Werner, he could even be on his way to the World Cup this month.
