Johnson urges Liverpool to go after Napoli ace Insigne

Former Liverpool defender, Glen Johnson, hopes they will go for Napoli winger Lorenzo Insigne before the transfer window slams shuts.

The Reds have not made any major moves this summer, from an attacking standpoint.

They are still relying on the front line of Roberto Firmino, Sadio Mane, and Mohamed Salah, with Diogo Jota offering a valuable rotation option.

Johnson believes that Insigne, who won Euro 2020 with Italy this summer, could do a great job for Jurgen Klopp’s team.

“Liverpool only sign players that tick a certain amount of boxes. I like the way they do business, but it’s not going to really excite the fans,” Johnson told SBK Sportsbook.

“They won’t just go and buy the biggest name out there. To be fair to them, with what they’ve done in recent years, it obviously works. If fans are patient with them then the club will get it right eventually.

“What Liverpool need to challenge for the league is someone in midfield that can help the front three in very tight games. I do think they heavily rely on the front three.

“They’ve pretty much had the same front three for a few years now – although they did bring in Jota last year who has done a good job so far. But despite that, they need a bit more help up top to be honest.

“I would like to see Lorenzo Insigne come in. He really impressed me at Euro 2020. He could be the sort of flair player who they could use as a number 10 to unlock the door.

“They won’t just buy players on performances alone. I’m sure they’ve got their eyes on a few people. They need to bring players in. I can definitely see them making another two, three signings.”
