Vladimir Smicer thinks Liverpool need to buy a striker in the summer and that Monaco star Kylian Mbappe would be a good signing.

Mbappe has been in brilliant form for the Ligue 1 side this season with 25 goals to help his side to the Champions League semi-finals.

And the former Czech Republic international thinks that the Reds need someone who is going to score over 20 goals a season.

“I think we need a striker,” Smicer told the Liverpool ECHO.

“Daniel Sturridge has had a lot of problems this season. I thought he would be our main striker like Diego Costa at Chelsea, Zlatan Ibrahimovic at United and Harry Kane at Tottenham.

“I think we’ve missed this type of player. It’s probably cost us the title. If we had a striker who had scored 20 goals plus, who knows? We could be top.

“I like the Monaco striker Mbappe. He’s only 18, but what I’ve seen from him has been really unbelievable for such a young player.

“Everything looks so natural to him. I like the way he plays. He would definitely be very expensive.

“All the big clubs in Europe will chase him so it would be difficult to get him, but if I was the Liverpool manager I’d go for him.”
