Led by Mohamed Salah and featuring some of the best attackers in the Premier League, including Luis Diaz, Diogo Jota, Cody Gakpo, and Darwin Nunez, Liverpool has been focusing on strengthening its attacking lineup since the winter of 2022, resulting in a squad that is perfect for its age.
Harvey Elliott can also play on the left or right wing, and Ben Doak, who is on the market to rave reviews, has created several chances in friendly matches from his quick dribbles. In addition, there is also Kaide Gordon and on-loan Fabio Carvalho, who are both around 20 years old and talented.
However, Liverpool may focus even more on side attackers. According to Anfield Watch, they are interested in 21-year-old Jaden Philogene, who plays for Aston Villa, and have held discussions with the player’s agent.
The London-born attacker joined the club in 2018 and spent last season on loan at Cardiff after a loan spell at Stoke City. His reputation continues to grow with 37 appearances in the Championship, scoring four goals.
He is a winger who has the ability to break through opposing defenses with his precision agility and large stride, while also possessing a fine step with the soles of his feet. He can play in either left or right high position, and his supple dribbling ability is his most attractive feature.
The England U-20 winger, who can also fill the home-grown slot, is an option to add to the team in case of emergency, but he will not be available as long as the front line players are in good shape, and it is unclear whether the players will find the move to Anfield attractive, including his age.
Liverpool will have to wait until the summer to see if they will be attracted to this move.
