Emile Heskey believes that Liverpool FC should sign a new striker in the summer transfer window.

The Reds have been in fine form this season and they are currently top of the the Premier League table as they try and win the top-flight title for the first time.

Jurgen Klopp’s men were 3-1 winners over Southampton on Friday night to move back to the top of the table and two points clear of Manchester City, who have played a game less.

Liverpool FC lost Philippe Coutinho to FC Barcelona last January and the Reds did not bring in a new attacking player following his exit.

And former Liverpool FC star Heskey seems to think that the Reds should look to try and bring in a new striker in the summer transfer window.

Speaking in an interview with betoclock.com, Heskey said: “Liverpool will want to sign another striker in summer.

“Divock Origi gives them another option to up front, but they still need another top striker instead of Firmino.

“They’ll be looking to sign a player that can offer the option in behind the opposition defence.

“However, you don’t really see players who can do that in the Premier League, apart from Marcus Rashford for Man United.”

Liverpool FC will return to Champions League action on Tuesday night when they take on FC Porto in the first leg of their quarter-final clash at Anfield.

The Reds will then take on Chelsea FC in the Premier League at Anfield on Sunday afternoon as they look to continue their march towards the Premier League title this season.
