The Torino hitman would be an excellent January addition for Liverpool.

Jurgen Klopp manager

Liverpool have begun their Premier League campaign in excellent fashion this season, winning 15 and drawing three of their opening 18 games.

Jürgen Klopp's side currently sit comfortably at the top of the Premier League table, four points clear of second placed Manchester City, but that shouldn't mean that the German will not be looking to bolster his ranks further still next month.

One particular area where Klopp might be looking to improve is his centre-forward department, with more competition for Roberto Firmino required, especially considering the Brazilian's under-par performances so far this term.


With this in mind, Liverpool should consider a move for Torino hitman Andrea Belotti in January.

The 25-year-old is widely considered to be one of the most dangerous strikers on the continent, and he would certainly add a totally different dimension to the Reds' attacking play.

Belotti has a fantastic goalscoring record, having bagged 61 goals in 127 appearances in all competitions for Torino.

Whilst Firmino is a deep-lying centre-forward, the Italy international always plays off the shoulder of the last defender, and his ability to run in behind the opposition's defence would provide Klopp with a totally different option up front.

Whilst many Liverpool fans might suggest that the need for a centre-back is far greater than a striker, Belotti's quality is such that he might just make the Merseyside outfit unstoppable.

He won't come cheap, however, with Italian publication Calcio Mercato claiming that Torino will not sell him for anything less than €100 million (£90 million).

If Liverpool can find a way of coming up with that sort of cash, though, they should not hesitate to bring the Italian to Anfield next month.
