Liverpool’s front trio of Mane, Salah and Firmino were fantastic in the last campaign. In all competitions, the Senegalese international scored 20 goals, the Egyptian playmaker netted 44 goals and the Brazilian forward bagged 27 goals.
If one of the above mentioned stars gets injured, Klopp will suffer because he has got no quality player to cover.
Last season, the 20-year-old attacker featured in 34 games in all competitions for Bayer Leverkusen, scored 12 goals and provided 6 assists.
The Bundesliga winger is a left footed player, who has proved to be productive on both the right wing and the left wing. Therefore, he can provide quality cover for both Mane and Salah at Anfield. The Liverpool wingers are irreplaceable.
Bailey’s natural starting position is on the left wing, so, if he does end up moving to Liverpool, we can expect him to start on the left wing in case Mane is absent or rested.
Here is how Liverpool could line up with Leon Bailey.
