Liverpool closely monitoring €60m-rated World Cup winner

The Merseyside giants are reportedly set to offer Sadio Mane to Barcelona in a bid to clinch the transfer of Antoine Griezmann. This shock rumour will be some welcome the Reds transfer news after the club’s recent slump, with changes clearly needed to give Jurgen Klopp’s side a new dimension.

Of course, Sadio is not a player Liverpool will want to see leave, with the African forward continuing to be a hugely important part of this team. However, Antoine is also an elite forward and could perhaps be available in the right kind of deal this summer after struggling at Barcelona.

The 29-year-old attacker could shine in a different set-up and it would be exciting to see him in the PL in the near future. Man United and Man City have also been linked with Griezmann in the past, and it could be worth exchanging Mane to give Liverpool something a bit different up top.

Jurgen Klopp’s side haven’t really done anything to their squad in key areas in the last few years, with that front three of Mohamed Salah, Mane and Roberto Firmino perhaps now a little more predictable.
