Jorg Schmatke advises the team to sign Juventus' 18-year-old forward Kenan Yıldız Transfers

Liverpool acquired a string of forwards in three transfer windows with Luis Diaz, Darwin Nunez, and Cody Gakpo. This summer, they focused on acquiring midfielders, bringing in four midfielders, including Alexis Mac Allister.

The next reinforcement is seen as a generational change in the defensive ranks, but with Mohamed Salah being linked with a move to Saudi Arabia, the club may also look to strengthen its front line. 

West Ham winger Jarrod Bowen and Wolves winger Pedro Neto are among the candidates.

According to Calciomercato, Liverpool is looking at forwards who could be an asset to the team in the long run, and has turned its attention to 18-year-old forward Kenan Yildiz.

This was apparently due to the advice of Jorg Schmatke, the club’s sporting director.

The young player, who has been a fixture in the first team this season, has made five appearances so far, although his time has been limited. He has proven himself up front in Serie A and Serie C as a center forward, second striker, and attacking midfielder.

He still has little experience in the Italian domestic league and is more of an investment for the future than an immediate asset. What kind of career will the German-born Turkish forward have in the future?
