Liverpool will surely target a new attacker this summer, though Jurgen Klopp may not splash crazy money on a player to offer support to his big front three.

The Reds have three exceptional attackers already in Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane, but one more impressive forward to support them is needed, especially with Daniel Sturridge on his way out and question marks over Divock Origi and Xherdan Shaqiri.

 

A big-name forward may be reluctant to join, given that Klopp is unlikely to drop any of those front three players for a new signing.

Still, ex-Liverpool midfielder Don Hutchison thinks he knows the right man for Liverpool to bring in this summer – Barcelona's Ousmane Dembele.

Barcelona splashed £135million to sign Dembele in 2017 (BBC), but some believe he will be sold this summer – even after hitting 14 goals and nine assists this season.

The French speedster is still just 22, meaning he has huge potential still to be tapped into, and Klopp certainly knows the winger – he rented a house to him during his time with Borussia Dortmund.

Now, Hutchison has taken to Twitter to 'double dare' Liverpool into making a move for Dembele, believing that Liverpool simply can't keep rolling Firmino, Mane and Salah out every week, with Dembele his ideal signing to help them.
