With the news that Liverpool reportedly have a verbal deal in place for Lyon attacking midfielder Nabil Fekir, his arrival at the club could push the club to new heights in the attacking third.
And it seems fantastic that we’re even contemplating that.
Liverpool have always loved attacking and the legendary days of Luis Suarez, Raheem Sterling, and Daniel Sturridge are still only a recent memory.
The trio of attackers created an attack which was feared by defences in the Premier League as the three went on a goal frenzy which was no more evident in season 2013/14, where between them they scored a whopping 67 goals – at the point of writing that’s equals the amount of goals Manchester United have scored this season.
Of course, the Reds have annihilated that record this season but in order to wipe out the memories of Suarez and co. completely, they must repeat that feat next season.
With Fekir, that shouldn’t be a problem.
With Mo Salah on 43 goals, and in the form of his life at Anfield, where he is supplemented by Roberto Firmino on 27 goals and Sadio Mane on 19, the acquisition of Fekir on top would not only better the three of Sturridge, Suarez and Sterling, it would blow their memory into the stratosphere.
That’s because the Lyon attacker has been ripping it up in Ligue 1 this season.
22 goals and seven assists in 38 appearances in the French top-flight has seen his reputation on the European scene grow.
It’s mouth-watering to think what the Reds frontline will look like next season, with Fekir possibly sitting in behind.
There is a feeling this season has been a one-off, leading pundits to question whether Salah can repeat his feats from this campaign.
But we think that with Fekir on board, they will go on to extinguish Suarez and co. from living memory as they become even more potent going forward.
