Liverpool have one of the most feared and well-established forward lines anywhere in European football.
With the Merseyside giants eyeing a first ever Premier League title and reaching the semi-finals of the Champions League to boot, their star-studded strike force has ripped defences apart both home and abroad.
Between them, Mo Salah, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane have scored 61 goals in all competitions with manager Jurgen Klopp keeping his fabled front three intact wherever possible. In short, when they are fit, they start.
So any top class attacker linked with a move to Anfield will be fully aware that he, like Xherdan Shaqiri, Daniel Sturridge and co, would be forced to spend much of his time waiting for a chance.
So Liverpool appear to be stuck between a rock in a hard place. Klopp seemingly wants to add depth in attack, but convincing any player to sign as a backup to Salah, Firmino and Mane is easier said than done.
