Liverpool are eyeing a Red Bull Salzburg star as a possible back-up to Roberto Firmino, according to the latest reports.

Football Whispers exclusive states that Jurgen Klopp is still looking for a reliable deputy to Roberto Firmino in the forward department.

There are doubts over the futures of Daniel Sturridge, Divock Origi and Dominic Solanke, with none of the trio seeing consistent game time under Klopp.

The report claims that the Reds are closely monitoring Red Bull Salzburg striker Munas Dabbur as a possible option to be Firmino’s understudy.

It goes on to state that Barry Hunter, the chief scout for Liverpool, has “travelled to Austria on a number of occasions to watch the forward in action”.

The 26-year-old already has 16 goals in all competitions this term, following up the 2017/18 season when he scored 22 times in the Austrian Bundesliga.

The Israel international has two-and-a-half years left on his current contract, and Liverpool would apparently not have to break the bank.
