Liverpool is not looking for a new striker
The Anfield icon believes there are other areas of greater concern for Jurgen Klopp during the summer transfer window.
What did John Barnes say
John Barnes can’t see Liverpool launch a Tottenham raid for Harry Kane, with the Red legend saying Jurgen Klopp doesn’t need to buy a hitter this summer. Reinforcements in the final third at Anfield were discussed, with much speculation that it was time to freshen up the unit that was so dependent on Sadio Mane, Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino. The movement began on Merseyside, where the French defender Ibrahima Konate escaped from RB Leipzig, and now you can look for more attacking options. John Barnes believes Jurgen Klopp will stay out of the fight for Spurs star Harry Kane, saying Liverpool doesn’t need to buy a striker this summer. They have players who will score a lot of goals already. Everyone wants Harry if he’s available and teams want a player like him, but he’s not the one Liverpool needs so that he doesn’t have to be on their radar.
When will new attackers be needed?
Any move for Harry Kane is likely to cost him £ 100m of quibbles, with the England captain being one of the most consistent goalscorers in world football. These funds could be used elsewhere in Anfield when John Barnes expects Jurgen Klopp to strengthen his ranks in the middle of the park when Georginio Wijnaldum leaves and questions will be asked to others in the area. The ex-England international added that Liverpool got Diogo Jota, who can play in front, as well as Sadio Mane. They will only need to sign a new striker if they lose the current hitting options they already have. Don’t forget Divock Origi is still out there, so they have a lot of striker solutions to play in the club. Liverpool have signed the center-back and, depending on whether Xherdan Shaqiri or Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is coming, potentially another midfield player. The attacker is not on the wanted list for the summer window.
