Leeds United winger Crysencio Summerville is a potential summer transfer target for Liverpool, according to an update from journalist Ben Jacobs.

At the start of this season, much was made of the attacking riches at Jurgen Klopp’s disposal, with Mohamed Salah, Luis Diaz, Darwin Nunez, Diogo Jota and Cody Gakpo making up a fearsome unit.

Cracks have appeared as the campaign has gone on, however, with Salah arguably past his absolute peak, and Diaz and Nunez’s finishing under plenty of scrutiny.

Meanwhile, Jota’s injury woes are becoming problematic, with the Portuguese unavailable too often, and Gakpo isn’t performing at a high level consistently.

For that reason, another attacking player could be added to Liverpool’s squad this summer, and speaking to Give Me Sport, Jacobs talked up Summerville as a potential target:

“Liverpool are going to be in for a really busy summer and there will be additions, particularly in a wide winger-type area. Regardless of the fact that Mo Salah is expected to stay, with Luis Diaz not signing a new deal as of now Liverpool are still going to be looking for a slightly younger, wide, creative-minded player.

“That is where a target like Crysencio Summerville comes into the conversation potentially, and others of his profile, and they’re also going to be looking for a centre-back which has been a priority long before they knew who their new manager was.”

Our thoughts on Liverpool signing Summerville…

Some Liverpool fans may not be overly excited at the prospect of Summerville joining this summer, mainly because he has been playing in the Championship with Leeds this season.

The Dutchman could be a shrewd long-term investment, however, considering he is still only 22 years of age, scoring 19 goals and registering nine assists in the league in 2023/24 to date.

Liverpool have seen the impact of Summerville up close, too, with the winger scoring the winning goal at Anfield last season in a 2-1 win for Leeds.

Given his age, the attacker should only improve in the coming years, and he could grow into a more effective left-sided option than Luis Diaz over time, with the Colombian remaining divisive due to his lack of consistent end product.
