Liverpool may want Saka – but “I know is not going to happen”

Liverpool has attempted to make some impactful attacking signings this season, bringing in Darwin Nunez and Cody Gakpo, but as seen against Brighton this weekend and the games before, these attacking deals have not resulted in any success for the Reds.

The Liverpool legend Jose Enrique has suggested that Jurgen Klopp make a move for Arsenal star Bukayo Saka, a player who could help his attack. Jose Enrique spoke of Saka prior to the North London Derby, where he reacted to a tweet by Stadium Astro, which said,

“Bukayo Saka has been instrumental to the success of the Gunners this season and he will surely play a big role in the derby.”

Enrique’s response to that tweet was, “What a player will love him at LFC even if I know is not going to happen but love him.”

It should be reassuring to Gooners that their Premier League rivals are hoping Saka is their player. Although Saka has been delivering for the Gunners since his debut, it is this season that he has really had to show what he is all about.

In the Premier League, he has not only terrorised left backs, but he is now delivering in front of goal, with 6 goals and 7 assists in 18 league games. He has been undroppable at right wing.

On the other hand, at the national team, he has already established himself as England’s right wing.

Although his suitors may be able to steal him due to his contract situation (his current deal expires in 2024), it is likely that other than winning the PL title this season, Saka may gift Arsenal fans his allegiance by extending his Arsenal contract.
