Liverpool’s forwards, led by Mohamed Salah, Darwin Nunez, Luis Diaz, Diogo Jota, Cody Gakpo, and Ben Doak, are a variety of ages from veteran to young.
There are also various types of playing styles, and the starting lineup is changed depending on the opponent and the development of the game. However, Liverpool, who are eager to invest in the future, are interested in a young winger who is starting to make a name for himself in La Liga.
Fichajes reported that the 18-year-old Assane Diao, who has been promoted to Real Betis’ first team this season and has scored three goals in four La Liga and Europa League games, has great potential and could be available as early as this winter.
The young gem is under contract with Betis until 2027, but his contract includes a release clause, which is worth €30 million . According to the paper, Liverpool is prepared to pay the set amount to acquire him.
He can play as a left or right winger. In addition to his athleticism, he has shown a high level of determination and has also played for the Spanish U-19 national team. He has little experience, but has the potential to excel.
Like England international Jarrod Bowen, who has signed a long-term contract with West Ham, he is not a player who can immediately fill the shoes of Egypt international Mohamed Salah, but if he can produce results in the top team, including this season, he could quickly become a candidate to succeed him.
