Liverpool have top quality stars like Firmino, Mane and Salah in their attacking department. However, Jurgen Klopp seriously lacks quality depth up front.
In such a situation, the German boss is looking to strengthen his offense and the Merseysiders are constantly linked with French international Nabil Fekir, who plays for Ligue 1 side Lyon (L’Equipe).
In my opinion, the Merseysiders should forget about signing the Les Bleus attacker and instead, they have to sign Leicester City superstar Riyad Mahrez.
The 27-year-old Algerian international has been a consistent performer in the past three seasons. Fekir has just performed well in the recently concluded campaign for Lyon.
Another important factor is adjusting to the style of play in Engalnd. Over the years. we have seen how foreigners have found it hard to deal with the physicality of the Premier League.
Fekir could take time to settle and that is not going to be good for Liverpool, who will be targeting the PL title next season. As far as Mahrez is concerned, he has proved his worth in the PL and back in 2016, he became the first African star to win the PFA Player of the Year award.
Both Fekir and Mahrez have the ability to play in the central attacking midfield and also out-wide on the right flank. The French star directly contributed in 24 league goals in the Ligue 1 and the Algerian star directly contributed in 23 goals in the PL. We know which league is more competitive.
Mahrez’s current deal will expire in 2020 and the Foxes value him at £75million (The Guardian). In your opinion, should Liverpool sign Mahrez or Fekir?
