Seen as the ultimate striker, Haaland’s next club may well prove to be his last and the Norwegian powerhouse could create a lasting legacy wherever he goes.
With a reported £68million release clause, Haaland will be available for a snippet of the price he would otherwise fetch in the market.
Signing Diaz has shown that Liverpool are already thinking about the next step with contract negotiations ongoing for Salah, Mane and Firmino – who are all set to be free agents in 2023.
Making a move for Haaland will almost certainly indicate that one of their tried-and-tested attacking trio will likely be moved on.
Certain risks are made by clubs trying to compete at the very top of European football and this summer may well be the turning point for Klopp and Liverpool’s transfer officials to take that chance in re-building what has been a successful cycle so far.
