The speculations regarding the 28-year-old Argentine striker Gonzalo Higuain has been taking some topsy-turvy turns lately. The striker, who denied Arsenal three years back to join the Italian side Naploi has been linked with a move to the Emirates yet again, but this time, the deal might surprise the spectators as according to Sky Sports, the Gunners are ready offer their striker Olivier Giroud in a player plus cash deal to bring Huguain in London.
It is understood that the 28-year-old is on the verge to leave the Italians, and due to that, many top clubs are looking to lure the player, who scored 36 goals in Serie A last season. During the Copa America Centenario, Liverpool’s manager Jurgen Klopp was spotted with Higuain’s brother, who also works as his agent and that fueled up the speculation regarding Higuain’s move to Anfield.
Later, many media even reported that Higuain himself is getting ready to work under the management of Jürgen Klopp, but nothing has been materialized till date. The former Real Madrid striker had a great season last term and ended up being a top scorer of Serie A.
Now, if the reports are to be believed, the Italian Champions Juventus have also joined the race to sign the player. ESPN stated that Juventus are ready met his £78 million release clause and the striker himself is keen to join Juventus. But what if he decides to join the Premier League? What will be the better destination for the player? Well, we do believe that Higuaín should go for Liverpool and here, we give you three reasons why?
A Perfect Klopp’s Fit-
It is fair to say that neither Sturridge nor Origi have shown a performance that could lead the spectators to bite their nails off. Higuain, on the other hand, is in a great form lately and we totally believe that working under Klopp will only make him better than ever. With Liverpool in a desperate need of a striker, Higuain could fit the bill.
There is no doubt that the 28-year-old is one of the most hard working players in the industry and besides that, despite of being a striker, he loves to challenge opponents to get the ball and that could really help the team. With all that being said, it is safe to say that Higuain would be the perfect signing for Klopp.
A Perfect Attacking Lineup-
As stated earlier, the Merseyside club needs a player who could be called as a ‘pure striker’ and for that, Higuain could be the perfect fit. So far Liverpool have one of the best attacking trio at their side in form of Coutinho; Firmino and Mane. All those players have a great stamina, possess a blistering pace and are capable of delivering the end result as well.
Higuain’s addition in the squad would complete the jigsaw of Liverpool and then the team could easily become one of the most dangerous attacking teams in the league. Besides that, Higuain will bring a top notch experience of the Champions League and then the attacker could also serve as a mentor for the youth.
The first and utmost reason to join Liverpool is their manager Jürgen Klopp. The 49-year-old German gaffer has come to Liverpool to guide them to the paramount and so far, he has been doing a great job. Since his arrival at the club, the players have revived their careers. Players like Firmino, Can and Lovren, who were believed as flop signings, did a fantastic job under Klopp and now, they are being touted as the most precious possession for the team.
There is no doubt that working under Klopp will be a delight for every single player and Higuaín is no exception. Progress is Klopp’s top priority and so is of Higuain’s. The German and Argentine duo could do wonders at Anfield and we are pretty sure that at the end of the season, Higuain himself will realize that joining Liverpool was one of the best things ever happened to him.
Liverpool legend open to these two Tottenham stars adding an extra-dimension to the attack
Latest Liverpool transfer news: John Aldridge open to Lucas Moura and Son Heung-min joining Liverpool
Liverpool legend John Aldridge wrote for the Irish Independent and believes the Reds need to add some players to their attack.
The Reds were excellent last season and capped off the campaign by winning the Champions League.
Our attack was stretched a little with Roberto Firmino’s injury late in the season but Divock Origi scored some crucial goals for us. Aldridge believes that the Reds have to bolster the attack and a quality centre-forward could add an “extra dimension” to the side.
The former Red named a couple of Tottenham players and wondered if we could pry them from our rivals (h/t Liverpool Echo):
“So I wonder whether Lucas Moura could be prised away from Tottenham, as he had to be a little bemused to be left out of their Champions League final starting line-up after he scored a fantastic hat-trick in the semi-final against Ajax.
“Moura is a tricky forward who could slot into the team if any of the front three were out and the same could be said of his team-mate Son Heung-min, although I would be surprised if Spurs allowed the South Korean to leave after his outstanding season.”
Aldridge backed Jurgen Klopp and his team to possibly have an ace up the sleeve and sign a quality striker in the summer.
The former Red threw Wilfried Zaha’s name in the mix and claimed that Klopp could take the Ivorian to another level (h/t Liverpool Echo).
Son would be a great addition to the Reds
Son is one of the best in the Premier League and can play in the wide positions or as an attacking midfielder.
Moura might have done the magic for Spurs against Ajax, however, Son is more consistent and will improve in the coming seasons.

It would be a miracle if we could steal the South Korean from Tottenham, but we should be in the market for a striker after seeing Daniel Sturridge leave in the summer.
Liverpool willing to send 22-year-old starlet on loan to Premier League clubs
Liverpool FC transfer news: Reds willing to send Harry Wilson on loan to Premier League sides
The 22-year-old was excellent for Derby as they reached the Championship play-off final, but he could not get them over the line.
The Welsh attacker racked up 16 goals and four assists for the Rams, and the report claims that this would be a blow for several Championship clubs interested in Wilson.
Derby and Leeds were interested in the 22-year-old, according to the report, but Premier League club Wolves are also keeping tabs on the attacker.
Liverpool to finalise Wilson’s fate soon
The report claims that any decision on Wilson’s future depends on his performances in pre-season.
Jurgen Klopp wants to take a close look at the 22-year-old in the summer as the Welshman tries to break into the Liverpool first-team.
Liverpool could do with cover for Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane out wide, and Wilson was in the form of his life last season.

The 22-year-old could be an important player for us next season, however, he still has to improve a lot before being considered a starter at Liverpool.
Liverpool talisman decides against £150million exit despite interest from European giants
Liverpool FC transfer news: Mohamed Salah rejects £150million exit from Liverpool
The Mirror claims that Egyptian sensation Mohamed Salah has rejected a move away from Liverpool in the summer. The 27-year-old scored in the Champions League final to help the Reds win their first title under Jurgen Klopp.
Salah also won his second consecutive Golden Boot after ending the Premier League campaign as one of the top scorers.
However, the report claims that Salah feels it is not the right time to leave Anfield, given our Champions League exploits.
Sadio Mane is another player who has been enquired about, but the report claims that the Senegal star is in no mood to leave either.
The pair want to win the Premier League for the Reds and break that duck next season, and Salah will revisit his situation at the end of the next season (h/t Mirror).
No reason to leave Liverpool at all
There isn’t any reason why a player would want to leave the Reds at the moment.
We play great football under Klopp, we have been on the up ever since he arrived and seem set to challenge for more trophies next season.
We have seen Philippe Coutinho struggle after his big move to Barcelona, while Real and Juve are in a transition period.

Liverpool are more stable than the other clubs, and another trophy or two next season should keep everyone on board.
