Dream Transfer: Gerrard urges Liverpool to sign 'unbelievable' €70m goal-machine who loves Klopp

A new striker is arguably a major transfer priority for Liverpool this summer, but who should Jurgen Klopp target?

According to Anfield legend Steven Gerrard, the Reds need to show ambition and make a move for one of Europe's most coveted goalscorers. When asked this week whether Liverpool should try and sign Dortmund star Pierre Emerick Aubameyang, Gerrard told BT Sport:

"Yes, but if he's in this type of form, he'll alert a lot of clubs not just Liverpool. He attacks the frame all the time and he gets tap-ins because of his movement".

In January, Aubameyang admitted that he may be on the move this summer:

"I am considering a move away in the summer. I need to see what options there are. A lot of people would like to see me in England".

Soon after, his agent confirmed:

"The time has come for him [Aubameyang] to face a new adventure. The adventure in BVB is coming to an end. Dortmund wants at least €60-€70m. I see him joining the Premier League."

In the recent past, Aubameyang has hailed Liverpool as a 'special' club, and last season, he praised Klopp for moulding him into the player he is today:

"I owe him [Klopp] a lot. It was great to work with him and he taught me many things. If I play like this as a striker now, it is because of him."

Given Aubameyang's prior relationship with Klopp, Liverpool surely have to be in the transfer conversation?

The Reds are desperately in need of a new top-class striker, and to secure the best will require a massive transfer outlay, and the added carrot of Champions League, which remains a possibility this season.

I'd have no issue with Liverpool spending '€60-€70m' on the right striker; Aubameyang fits the bill, and if he's available, Klopp (and FSG) should pull out all the stops to seal the deal.

Bev is having her bone marrow transplant today (Wed19th April). It's a big operation, and she'll be on life support for the duration. The recovery process is going to be very tough and unfortunately carries a great deal of risk with regards to infection, which could be life threatening due to the process requiring her immune system to have been purposefully wiped out beforehand (so that it doesn't f!ght against/reject the transplant). Sadly, the preparation treatment has adversely affected her heart as well and currently it is beating much lower than it should be so we have to hope that soon starts to recover as well. More HERE.
