Darren Ambrose has told Liverpool to replace Sadio Mane with Arsenal transfer target, Darwin Nunez, as he told talkSPORT.
Liverpool fans will be praying that their legendary Senegal forward stays on Merseyside, but there are suggestions he will depart this summer.
If Mane does leave, then it would be a body blow to Jurgen Klopp, but he will have no time to sulk because he will need to add more firepower to Liverpool’s forward line.
Could that come in the form of Benfica’s sought-after hitman, Nunez? The £60 million star has scored 34 goals in all competitions this season and he is wanted by the likes of Arsenal.
Former Crystal Palace player Ambrose certainly thinks the free-scoring Uruguayan could be an option following the ‘bombshell’ rumours surrounding Mane.
“It’s tough to replace a player like Mane,” said Ambrose. “It was all talked about Salah that he will leave.
“Now, this bombshell has come out and Mane is looking to leave. We don’t know if it’s confirmed, but there are rumours we are hearing.
“They have got fantastic recruitment at Liverpool. We have already seen that.
“But they will have their eye on people. I have no doubt they will have their eye on people.
“I thought about maybe Darwin Nunez. I know he’s highly thought of among European clubs and what he is doing at Benfica, at the moment.”
WHO COULD REPLACE MANE AT LIVERPOOL?
Liverpool don’t splash the cash in a crazy fashion like Manchester City, nor can they afford to have a hardly-used £100 million player on the bench.
Or is the Mane replacement already at the club in Luis Diaz, who has started life on Merseyside in an outstanding fashion?
Whatever happens, one thing is for sure, this Liverpool side, led by Klopp, haven’t got much wrong, especially when they sell and replace players.
