As the Liverpool shortlist emerges, Jurgen Klopp lodges a transfer request for Jarrod Bowen.
In the transfer window, Liverpool is seeking for ways to improve their attacking options.
Jarrod Bowen has apparently been targeted by Liverpool as a potential summer transfer target. The lone new addition at Anfield is Ibrahima Konate, although there looks to be an effort to bring in at least one forward-thinking player this summer.
Last season, Mohamed Salah was once again Liverpool’s primary goal scorer, with the Egyptian scoring 31 goals across all competitions.
Sadio Mane and Diogo Jota also scored 16 and 13 goals, respectively, while the rest of the team did not contribute much.
As Liverpool’s league play fell, Roberto Firmino struggled in front of goal and came under more scrutiny.
The squad’s fringe players, who were brought in to provide alternative options for Liverpool’s attack, were even more disappointed.
Divock Origi and Xherdan Shaqiri have both failed to score in the league, while Takumi Minamino has been loaned out to Southampton for the remainder of the season.
According to reports, Liverpool must sell before they can purchase, and the departures of Marko Grujic and Taiwo Awoniyi resulted in a £17 million return.
More are anticipated to leave, but it appears that Liverpool is putting preparations in place to re-energize their offensive.
Bowen of West Ham is one of the targets Liverpool is considering this summer, according to The Athletic.
According to the article, Klopp is a major fan of Bowen, and the club believes he has “enormous potential.”
Liverpool is thought to be keeping an eye on their alternatives, but no approach has been made yet.
However, any effort to bring in another forward is said to be contingent on Origi and Shaqiri’s futures.
Both players have been given permission to go if Liverpool’s asking price is reached.
Shaqiri impressed for Switzerland at Euro 2020 and has piqued Lazio’s interest, with Liverpool apparently asking for £13 million in return.
On Tuesday, Origi played in Liverpool’s first pre-season friendlies of the summer.
In back-to-back 30-minute contests, Klopp’s side faced Wacker Innsbruck and Stuttgart, with two different sides competing in each game.
Origi scored from the penalty spot in the 1-1 draw with Wacker Innsbruck in the first game.
