Liverpool’s hunt for an attacking player has hit yet another stumbling block. The Reds were linked with a move for Paris Saint-Germain forward Jese Rodriguez but reports from Italy suggest that the Spaniard could be on his way to join Roma from the Serie A.

The youngster had only moved to Paris from Real Madrid in the summer for a fee touted to be £21m. But he has not been able to get into the starting XI and has only scored twice all season so far. Corriere dello Sport claims that Jese would be joining the Rome side on loan as PSG want him to get more playing time.

This certainly does put a spanner in the works of Jurgen Klopp. The German manager has been looking for a quality attacker to bring in the winter window and Jese certainly would have fit the bill, basis the kind of play employed at the Reds.

This would be another player that seems to have decided against coming to Liverpool as Christian Pulisic and even Mahmoud Dahoud are stars that seem to be sticking to their current clubs, at least for now.

The need for Liverpool to bring in quality attacking players is certainly increasing as the Reds look to continue their great start to the season.

No Mane, more problems?

The Merseyside club will lose out on the services of Sadio Mane in the months of January and February as he will be traveling to the African Cup of Nations. The need to have quality cover and backup is a necessity as there really aren’t enough players who can make a huge difference to the side and if players such as Philippe Coutinho and Daniel Sturridge pick up injuries again, Liverpool will be in trouble.

The Reds might get a little lucky with the return of Coutinho and Sturridge in the side but they still need quality off the bench or for cover. Jese could have been a great option for the side but the Premier League club will have to try and make it without the Spaniard till the end of the season.

Quincy Promes is another player who has been on the radar for the Reds and the Dutchman could be the only player that does join the side in the winter window. The 24-year-old is a player similar to Mane’s playing style and wouldn’t cost a real fortune either.

Liverpool could still steal Jese from the grasp of Roma and if they do, maybe a Premier League title could be on the way.

Christian Pulisic

Christian Pulisic hasn’t ruled out playing in the Premier League someday. The American is one of the best youngsters in the Bundesliga and was brought to Borussia Dortmund by Jurgen Klopp.

The Express reports that Liverpool have been linked with a move for the 20-year-old.

Pulisic was quoted by the Express as saying:

“England, the Premier League, is a league where lots of kids dream of playing.

“So there is no reason why maybe one day I won’t play here.”

The Express adds that Klopp bid £11million for the American in 2016 but Dortmund rejected that offer. Pulisic has helped the club to the top of the Bundesliga this season and has two goals and two assists.

The report adds that Manchester United are also interested in the 20-year-old, and could rival any bid made by the Anfield giants.

The American added that he is enjoying his season with the Germans and knows that tabloid tales are part of the game.

Pulisic would be a wonderful addition to the team, and the youngster can play in a number of positions in the attacking third.

Mohamed Salah Liverpool

Mohamed Salah was recently in the news after being caught wearing a Playboy shirt. While many commented on his style, the Egyptian posted yet another image before the international break.

Salah is set to play for Egypt in an African Cup of Nations qualifier against Tunisia on Friday, and the pressure would be on the Liverpool man to get the three points for the Pharaohs.

The Liverpool attacker shared an image suggesting he was ready to play for the national side.

However, some of his Twitter followers weren’t happy with the picture he selected and believed the 26-year-old was unhappy playing for the Pharaohs.

Salah has been exceptional for club and country in recent years with Egypt making it to the World Cup in the summer.

The Reds reached the Champions League final but Salah had to be subbed after 30 minutes due to an injury.

The 26-year-old has 11 goals for club and country this season and will be important for both sides throughout the campaign.

However, the fans weren’t letting go of the picture easily, and here are some of their reactions from Twitter.

Ousmane Dembele

Ousmane Dembele

Ousmane Dembele’s agent, Moussa Sissoko, has claimed that the Frenchman is not looking to leave Barcelona.

Calciomercato reports that the Barcelona star was linked with a move to Liverpool, however, Sissoko was speaking to RMC Sport about the future of the 21-year-old.

Mundo Deportivo (h/t Calciomercato) quoted Sissoko as saying:

“The club is happy with Ousmane.

“Dembele doesn’t care about criticisms. Some of them are unfair. He is 20, he plays for Barcelona and he had a great start to the season.”

The agent further claimed that the player has to do better and the Frenchman was sick for a while which led to a few controversies.

Sissoko added that the national team manager and Barcelona’s Eric Abidal were happy with the attacker.

“Ousmane keeps working for a big club, the manager likes him and the same goes for Deschamps. I know Abidal is also very happy with how he is training and working for his club.”

Dembele seems to be doing better when compared to the same time frame last season. The Frenchman has scored four goals from 11 La Liga games and has one from two Champions League ties.

The former Borussia Dortmund player would be an amazing signing for the Reds, but we would have to pay a huge amount to sign him from Barcelona.
