Jurgen Klopp will be waiting for the summer transfer window to open as soon as possible as he has already played more than half a season with a squad inherited from a manager with completely different views.

The Red’s currently have the likes of Divock Origi, Christian Benteke and Daniel Sturridge in their ranks and Danny Ings is set to return from injury for the start of the next season.

However, with the future of Sturridge and Benteke in doubt at Anfield, Liverpool are looking at possible options to increase the quality and depth in the squad to challenge the top clubs in England next season.

And it is now reported that Klopp has identified River Plate striker Lucas Alario as a possible option to strengthen the squad next season.

ESPN FC has reported that sources from Argentina have revealed that Klopp’s Red’s have made an official enquiry for the 23-year old striker.

Alario helped his side to the Copa Libertadores title this season and has been in impressive form in the domestic league where he has managed to score 10 goals in 19 appearances for the Argentine outfit.

The club is said to be adamant to let the player leave but the sources revealed that the Anfield outfit have been tracking the 23-year old for some time now and that the Argentine outfit is expecting a bid for the player this summer.

The biggest problem for Liverpool since the departure of Luis Suarez has been the lack of goals. With 4 strikers in the squad, Liverpool have managed to score just 45 goals this season and none of their players have netted double figures this season in all competitions.

Alario might not represent a huge improvement on the current players in the squad but his energy and ability on the ball will see him fit into Klopp’s playing style seamlessly.

He will also provide a dynamic option for Klopp at tough times and given his potential, he can blossom into a top class player under the German.

However, it is to be seen if his quality is good enough for the Premier League and if Liverpool can actually get the best out of him if they go through with the deal.

Do you think Alario is the player who can solve Liverpool’s recent problems in front of goal?
