Transfer News: Liverpool could make a January move for Noah Okafor
The Reds are not alone with the likes of Manchester City and AC Milan also interested in the 22-year-old. It is believed that the centre forward will cost around €35-40 million.
He will not be the first forward that Jurgen Klopp would have bought from the Austrian club. The Reds signed Takumi Minamino in the 2020 January transfer window.
It is not surprising to Jurgen Klopp looking for a forward in the market. Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino are in their 30s, with Diogo Jota and Luis Diaz out on the sidelines with injuries.
Attacking reinforcements are needed up front and it would make sense to bring in a young and talented striker. The 22-year-old would help in adding depth to the attack, while also helping in increasing the competition in the squad.
