Patson Daka of Red Bull Salzburg is “very keen” to join the Reds this summer, according to Football Insider.
After assuming Erling Haaland’s goalscoring duties at the Austrian club, the Zambian striker, 22, is being pursued by elite clubs across the Premier League and Europe.
Liverpool have made inquiry regarding what it would take to entice Daka in the current window, according to a recruitment source.
As he prepares his next step in his career, the athlete is said to be “very keen” on joining a team like Liverpool.
According to the source, landing Daka, who has three years left on his deal, will cost roughly £17 million.
After an incredible 2020-21 season in which he won the Austrian Bundesliga player of the season, the prolific attacker is expected to leave Salzburg this summer.
The Zambian international has already ruled out a move to either West Ham United or Monaco in France.
After being placed on the target list of numerous major clubs, he has set his sights higher on a Champions League club.
Liverpool is a great alternative for a number nine who can provide quality and competition for Roberto Firmino, Sadio Mane, Mohammad Salah, and Diogo Jota.
Daka has proven to be just as good as his Salzburg predecessor Haaland in front of goal.
Daka scored 27 league goals in just 21 league appearances last season, and a total of 34 goals and 12 assists in 42 games in all competitions.
Daka has scored 68 goals and provided 27 assists in 125 appearances with Salzburg.
