Report – Liverpool willing to break club record to sign star

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp

In the January transfer window, Liverpool broke their transfer record to sign Dutch defender Virgil van Dijk from Southampton for a fee worth £75million (The Guardian).

If reports in the media are anything to go by then the Reds are looking to break their transfer record again and this time to sign a playmaker.

According to Rai Sports (via Calcio Mercato), Liverpool are willing to splash a sum of 200 million euros (£178million) to sign Italian international and Napoli star Lorenzo Insigne.

Insigne’s form:

Last season, under Sarri, Insigne featured in 48 games and directly contributed in no fewer than 28 goals (14 goals and 14 assists).

The 27-year-old Azzurri playmaker is at the peak of his game at the moment. This season, he has already netted 8 goals in 11 starts for the Naples based club under the management of Carlo Ancelotti.

Not to forget, he scored the winning goal against Liverpool in the Champions League contest earlier this month. The speedy attacker is naturally a left winger, who can effectively play as a secondary striker as well.

Situation at Anfield:

Liverpool have top quality stars in the team but they do lack depth in the attacking department. The German boss has not replaced Coutinho as yet and they must splash the cash to sign a top replacement as soon as possible.

The Merseysiders sold the Brazilian international for £142million (Liverpool Echo) in the winter transfer window and in the summer, they invested the cash to strengthen the midfield department and also signed a world class goalie in the form of Alisson. In my opinion, it is highly unlikely that the Reds will opt to spend around £178million to lure just one player.
