A Sky Germany report claims that Liverpool FC, along with Chelsea and RB Leipzig are three clubs looking to sign RB Salazburg’s Patson Daka. The Zambian forward has done an admirable job taking over the main striking duties from Erling Haaland, netting an impressive 27 goals in 28 games, with an additional 7 assists. For his efforts, he won Austrian player of the year. Only 22 years old, it’s understandable why he would be an attractive proposition to these teams.

Liverpool are of course, rumoured to be parting ways with bench attackers like Shaqiri and Origi, and Takumi Minamino could also leave for Southampton.

Of course, RB Salzburg to RB Leipzig makes sense, and Daka can help solidify the attacking corp for Leipzig, one year after Timo Werner’s departure and now, coach Julian Nagelsmann’s move to Bayern Munich.

Chelsea have been recently linked to Erling Haaland but a move for Daka still makes sense if they can’t make the move happen this summer, especially with their goalscoring woes this season.

It’ll certainly be worth paying attention to where Daka lands up this summer transfer window.
