Liverpool are reportedly interested in signing Montpellier winger Mousa Tamari, but he isn’t considered a replacement for Mohamed Salah.
The Reds didn’t add to their attack at all during the summer transfer window, but in truth, there was complete sense in that, given the depth they possess.
In Salah, Luis Diaz, Darwin Nunez, Diogo Jota and Cody Gakpo, Liverpool have five fantastic options in the final third, while Ben Doak has also emerged as a hugely exciting prospect.
That being said, it is vital that Jurgen Klopp continues to plan for the future, and it looks as though he is eyeing attacking reinformcents.
According to a fresh claim from Anfield Watch, Liverpool are keen on acquiring the services of Tamari from Montpellier, with the 26-year-old a key player for the Ligue 1 side.
It is stated that the Reds have been “keeping a close eye on the Jordan international this season, having tracked his progress prior to this summer”.
Most importantly, the report also says that Liverpool “do not view the player as a potential successor” to Salah, even though he is a left-footed right winger, like the Egpytian.
Our thoughts on Liverpool’s interest in Tamari…
With Salah now 31 years of age and not definitely staying put beyond this season, it is important that Liverpool look at younger alternatives moving forward.
Granted, this update suggests that Tamari wouldn’t be coming in as a direct replacement for him – the hope is that the legendary wide man is still around for a number of years – but he could be a great backup option.
At 26, Tamari is also at an ideal age to come in and hit the ground running for the Reds, possessing enough experience in the past, but also still being young enough to develop further over the next three or four years.
Having only just joined Montpellier and signed a deal until 2026, it may not be easy for Liverpool to lure him away so soon, whether it be in January or next summer, but the lure of moving to Anfield could turn the player’s head.
