Liverpool manager has mainly utilized Roberto Firmino in the center forward position and the Brazilian international has excelled big time for the Reds.
In the current campaign, the former Hoffenheim star has so far featured in 53 games in all competitions and directly contributed in 44 goals (27 goals and 17 assists).
As far as Liverpool’s strike-force is concerned, Klopp let go strikers like Sturridge, Origi and Benteke in recent times and he does lack quality depth in the department. Ings and Solanke are just not good enough to cover in the absence of Firmino.

In such a situation, reports suggest that Real Madrid have offered Liverpool the chance to sign their star striker Karim Benzema.
According to Don Balon, the reigning European champions want to sign Mohamed Salah and now Perez is prepared to include Benzema in the operation. The Spanish source have mentioned that the Real Madrid president has offered Klopp an incentive to facilitate the exit of Salah. He is now ready to lower the asking price of Benzema to 50 million euros (£43million).
The 30-year-old striker has been brilliant for the Los Blancos over the years but this season, he has not been at his best. In 31 league games, the former Lyon center forward has only netted 5 goals (12 assists).
Benzema is clearly past his best and Liverpool should not sign him. Instead, Klopp must lure a young and quality striker to cover for Firmino. More importantly, the German boss must hold on to Salah no matter what happens.
