The depth of Liverpool’s wide attacking positions needs to be improved, and the name Antony has been on their radar for some time.
According to reports, the Merseysiders have contacted Ajax about signing the Brazilian international.
The Red Devils on the other hand have given up on the Samba attacker, according to latest information from Pilip de Brun, because of the high asking price put up by the Dutch champions.
Following the turn-out of events, Liverpool have to hire the services of Antony, who excelled during the previous campaign for the Eredivisie giants, as a result of Manchester United backing down.
Liverpool needs quality depth to compete with a club as powerful as Manchester City because players can get injured or have bad spells.
Superstar playmaker, Mohamed Salah, and the Reds just reached an agreement on a new contract. The problem at Anfield is that there is no one to cover for the African star if he is injured or out of form. The Egyptian international is irreplaceable on the right wing.
Salah only scored three goals from open play in the last 12 Premier League games of the previous campaign. But Jurgen Klopp had no choice than to continue using him despite the winger’s poor form as there was no backup.
If Salah becomes injured or out of form, who will step up? Should we expect that Jota, Bobby, Nunez, and Carvalho—players who typically play in the center—will flourish on the right flank? don’t think so.
In this case, it would be imperative to sign a top-notch right winger this summer, and Antony would be a great choice. In the previous season, the 22-year-old regularly assisted and scored goals for Ajax.
Recall how Luis Diaz’s arrival last season rejuvenated Sadio Mane? Along with improving the department’s quality and depth, Antony will also push Salah to perform better.
The Reds will have to spend a significant amount of money to sign the South American. According to The Daily Mail, Ajax has up its asking price to £84 million in an effort to ward off suitors.
