It's been no secret that Liverpool FC have struggled in front of goal this season. A lack of offensive output has reached historic proportions as Liverpool have set multiple goal droughts throughout their difficult season.

With the summer transfer window quickly approaching, a goal-scoring target will most certainly be on the cards for Michael Edwards, Jurgen Klopp, and their staff.

Sevilla may very well have the answer that Liverpool are looking for.

Youssef En-Nesyri Sevilla

Youssef En-Nesyri has 17 goals this season for Sevilla

Moroccan forward Youssef En-Nesyri is reportedly on the shortlist for the Reds according to Foot Mercado and Estadio Deportivo.

Sevilla will reportedly ask for upwards of £39million for the 23-year-old.

Given his ability in front of net, it is no wonder Liverpool are interested. In 20 La Liga starts and 12 appearances off the bench, En-Nesyri has scored 17 times and added another six goals in Sevilla's Champions League campaign this season.

Capable of playing across the entire front line, En-Nesyri is mainly used as a number-nine. Standing at six-foot-two-inches, the Moroccan would present a larger threat in the box than what Liverpool currently employ.

Are Liverpool still in the Erling Haaland sweepstakes? 

If Liverpool are out of the race for Erling Haaland (Which I'm sure we all expect), En-Nesyri is an excellent option to help produce goals. Positionally, he is a very good, especially inside the six-yard-box. His dribbling ability gives him exactly the type of skillset we ask of Roberto Firmino in the false-nine position, but without the flare and passing ability. However, in need of a poacher, he fits the bill.

En-Nesyri is the exact type of player who comes to Liverpool with questions as to how he may fit in the squad, and Klopp turns into a world beater. Age, skillset, character all make sense as far as a prototypical Liverpool signing in the Klopp era. Surely, this is a player to keep an eye on this summer.
