Alexander Isak

Liverpool legend names two players he wants to see the club pursue this summer



Former Liverpool striker Robbie Fowler has urged his former club to pursue Premier League stars Alexander Isak and Ollie Watkins.

Liverpool are set to kick off a new era at Anfield following Jurgen Klopp’s departure and the arrival of new boss Arne Slot from Dutch side Feyenoord.

There’s expected to be plenty of change at the club this summer with the future of a number of key players up in the air, and Slot likely to want to bring in his own players.


Fowler urges Liverpool to pursue Watkins and Isak

As you can imagine speculation has already begun over what players Slot could be bringing to Anfield, but previous reports have suggested one area he could look to strengthen is in attack.

Darwin Nunez has had a mixed second season at the club, with the Uruguay international starting the season well and then fading as it went on.

The future of Mohamed Salah has been a talking point with Saudi likely to reignite their interest this summer and the Egyptian only has one year remaining on his current deal.

Luis Diaz has shown flashes this season, but has lacked consistency, whilst Cody Gakpo hasn’t really hit expectations since joining the club.

Fowler has urged Liverpool to pursue Isak and Watkins this summer.

Fowler, a former striker himself believes the last few weeks of the season proved Liverpool lacked quality at the top end of the pitch, with the Reds linked to a move for West Ham’s Mohammed Kudus.

“In the last six weeks or so, it has become evident that Liverpool need a player who can change things and make their attack more varied when it isn’t happening for them, I’m not saying that Kudus is that catalyst, however, Fowler said in quotes picked up by TEAMtalk.


Fowler would like to see his former club go after Isak and Watkins who have both had brilliant seasons for Newcastle and Aston Villa respectively.

“Would [Kudus] make the club better? He would make the squad better, there is no doubt about that and he is an exciting player”, Fowler added.

“There are two players I would genuinely like to see at the club, Ollie Watkins and Alexander Isak.

“I think Watkins has just signed a new deal, but I’ve got a lot of time for him and I think he is brilliant.

“Isak, for me, reminds me of Sadio Mane as well, I don’t want to put things in people’s heads, but I think he would be a good fit.

“There’s a bit of a Sadio Mane headache still at Liverpool and I can see a bit of Mane in Isak, in all honesty.”


How likely a move for either player is remains to be seen, but that sort of quality would certainly make a huge difference for Liverpool.
