Liverpool legend Phil Thompson has urged manager Jurgen Klopp to sign Pierre Emerick- Aubameyang during the January transfer window.
Thompson said, “I do feel that come January we need to improve the defenders and get an out-and-out striker. If Pierre-EmerickAubameyang became available then he should be on our hit list.”
Aubameyang is regarded as one of the World’s best attackers after scoring 133 goals from 200 games for Borussia Dortmund. He will also be familiar to Reds boss Klopp as the two had worked together at Dortmund.
It remains to be seen though whether Klopp will be interested in bringing in a new striker considering that it has been the team’s defensive problems which have been highlighted more than anything else during the early parts of this season.
If the Reds do chase Aubameyang, they are likely to face a difficult challenge considering that there will be many clubs in Europe that will be chasing him.
