Why Liverpool Need A Striker Like Onuachu


Genk Sporting Director Dimitri de Conde has explained why Liverpool need a striker like Paul Onuachu.

The 27-year-old has been one of the standout centre-forwards in the Pro League since joining Genk in 2019, scoring 33 goals in 38 appearances last season.

It is hard to miss the Nigeria international, who stands six-foot-seven-inches tall and has started the current campaign strongly with three goals in all competitions.

Liverpool were linked with attacking targets throughout the summer transfer window to provide competition for No. 9 Roberto Firmino and versatile forward Diogo Jota, both of whom are less than six-foot tall.

De Conde has been keen to point out the Reds’ lack of a physical presence up front, which he believes was evident in the 1-1 draw with Chelsea before the international break.
