Liverpool fans are hoping that the Merseyside club bid for Belgian player, Michy Batshuayi in the summer, according to reports.
The 24-year-old striker is in great form for Borussia Dortmund whom he joined on a six-month loan deal from Chelsea. He has scored five goals in just four matches he’s played so far for the Westfalenstadion outfit.
Despite Liverpool’s quality attack, the fans still believe Jurgen Klopp must prevent losing the Belgian forward to Borussia Dortmund who are willing to sign him on a permanent deal in the summer. The Reds have scored at least one goal in each of their last eight fixtures including their 5-0 thrashing of Porto in the Champions League last-16 first leg.
Firmino seems to lack a real competitor for the team’s center-forward place despite the acquisition of Dominic Solanke from Chelsea before the start of this season, and the fans believe the Belgian could provide the competition required in the team.
According to Transfermarkt, Batshuayi is valued at £22.5 million. However, his value could rise up before the end of the season should he maintain his current amazing goalscoring form which has helped him play with much confidence unlike his time at the West London club where he hardly made Conte’s squad list.
Chelsea might fail to release him to neither Dortmund nor Liverpool as the fans are calling for the player’s return to Stamford Bridge.
