Manchester City announced this week that Premier League legend Sergio Aguero will leave the club at the end of the season and Anfield Central’s Chief Writer Michael Mongie believes the Reds should make a move to sign him.
Liverpool haven’t featured a traditional no.9 in their side since Jurgen Klopp moved Roberto Firmino from attacking midfield into a false nine role but that should change this summer after the Brazilian’s poor form.
Luis Suarez has been linked in Spain by Fichajes.net while we exclusively reported that the club is interested in a deal for Odsonne Eduoard.
Signing Aguero, however, would be amazing to see for a number of reasons. Firstly, the 32-year-old is a boyhood Liverpool fan and even told Munich TZ in 2005, as reported by Sky Sports, that it would be a dream to play for the Anfield side.
He said: “If I had to choose a league then it would be the Premier League. I have been a Liverpool fan for as long as I can remember and it would be a dream to play there.
“I watched the Champions League final and celebrated every goal as if it was for Independiente.”
As it turned out, he moved to Manchester City but now could be the right time to seal a move to the club he supported when he was a boy.
His contract with Manchester City expires at the end of July and this is advantageous for the Reds for one reason.
There is no chance the Premier League leaders would sell to Liverpool as they know it would only strengthen them but as things stand, it would be up to Aguero to decide on a move to Merseyside.
Of course, his injury record is far from ideal but if Liverpool need to sign a stop-gap striker to tie them over until they are ready to sign the likes of Erling Haaland or Kylian Mbappe, signing Aguero makes a lot sense.
