Liverpool’s attack:

Liverpool have top quality wingers like Salah and Mane and they improved their offense by signing Xherdan Shaqiri from relegated Stoke City in the summer transfer window.

The Swiss international has impressed every time he has stepped onto the field for the Merseysiders. In three starts, he has already netted a goal and provided three assists for Klopp.

Munian’s record:

Last season, Munian was mostly on the treatment table and could only feature in 14 league games for Bilbao. This season, so far, he has featured in 9 league games and scored 4 goals.

Th 25-year-old is a pacy left winger, who can play in the central attacking midfield role as well and also as a secondary striker if needed.

Munian has got a release clause (Mundo Deportivo) of 45 million euros (£40million) in his contract (expires next June) and Liverpool should look to lure him in the January transfer window for cheap.
