Liverpool should sell Benteke, Sturridge, and enter race for Aubameyang

J├╝rgen Klopp thinking

Can Jurgen Klopp lure Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang to Liverpool?

Over the past two summers Liverpool have cashed in on two star players, but have not invested the money wisely.

After netting £75 million for Luis Suarez and £49 million for Raheem Sterling, the club were heading backwards after replacements failed to shine, and Brendan Rodgers was fired.

New boss Jurgen Klopp has added a fresh energy to the club, and the hope is that the enigmatic German will not make the same mistakes in the transfer market.

This is why Liverpool should consider cashing in on two of their strikers, in order to sign Europe's most in demand forward, who he signed for Borussia Dortmund, Pierre-Emerick Aubmeyang.

Aubameyang has been in prolific form for Dortmund this season, scoring three times over two legs as they dumped Tottenham out of the Europa League, and has 22 goals in 25 Bundesliga games.

As a result he would not come cheap, with The Mail reporting last month he could cost as much £70 million.

Out of reach for Liverpool? Perhaps not. With reports in The Mail suggesting PSG want to buy Daniel Sturridge for £45 million, and last year's £32 million signing Christian Benteke wanting out, Liverpool can recoup the majority of that fee, especially if they cash in on a couple of fringe players for decent fees too.

Aubameyang will not be short on offers, but Jurgen Klopp has an edge due to his previous working relationship with the Gabon international, and will get another close look at him when the two teams face off in the Europa League next month.
