The Reds are known for going under the radar and signing some hidden gems in the transfer window.
It’s claimed by British media that Liverpool are eyeing move for Getafe striker Enes Unal.
Getafe spent 9 million euros to sign the Turkey international from Villarreal in the summer of 2020. The 24-year-old has three years left on his current contract which expires in 2025.
The striker banged in 15 goals and provided one assist in 32 matches for Getafe this season across all fronts showcasing just how influential he has been in the final third.
He is considered to be one of the best strikers in Turkey. Unal has also left his mark at the international stage after netting two goals in 26 senior appearances for the Turkey national team.
His impressive performances this season have apparently caught the eye of some of Europe’s big clubs.
Jurgen Klopp wants to sign a new striker and Unal is one of the names at the top of his wishlist. The Liverpool manager has been impressed by his performances this season and could make a move this summer.
The former Villarreal man provides a unique blend between a classic center-forward and the modern striker. His versatile nature can help the manager to be more flexible with the formations.
According to the report, “Liverpool scouts are watching Getafe striker Enes Unal. Fanatik says with Divock Origi leaving Anfield this summer the Reds will be seeking a replacement for the Belgian striker – and former Manchester City prospect Unal could be the man to do it. The Reds could be interested in Getafe foward Unal. Unal, now 24, was with City from 2015-2017, but never made a first team appearance.”
Euro Football Rumours
The Reds have to fork out a huge transfer fee if they are genuinely interested in the Turkey international.
Getafe are preparing to sell their striker should they receive a massive offer for him.
Good signing for Liverpool?
If Liverpool and Klopp are seriously considering a striker, Unal could also prove to be a smart option.
Enes Unal will be an ideal choice for Jurgen Klopp as he ticks all the right boxes in terms of what he demands from his attackers.
Stylistically, he would be a great fit in Liverpool.
If Klopp sees him as the right man for his side, Liverpool should quickly make a move to fend off interest from other clubs.
