‘World class player’… Liverpool told they’d dominate the Premier League if they bought 27-year-old striker


Liverpool have been urged to cash in on Luis Diaz and Cody Gakpo in order to dominate the Premier League.

The two forwards have been a little patchy this season. Diaz has improved of late – culminating in a goal-scoring display on Wednesday against Fulham. But by and large, the Colombian has been disappointing this term.

Gakpo meanwhile has been an inconsistent presence. Nine goals is a decent return for the Dutchman, although there’s no doubt he should have had more.

As a result, Peterborough United chairman and Liverpool fan Darragh MacAnthony has urged the Reds to take action. Speaking on his The Hard Truth podcast, MacAnthony claims that Jurgen Klopp should be doing whatever he can to sign Ivan Toney from Brentford.


“He’s a world class player,” says the Irishman, of Toney. “Every team at the top of the Premier League should buy him and need him. I want to see Brentford win games and stay in the Premier League and then I want to see him get his move.

“Ivan Toney is in the top three strikers in the Premier League. I even look at Liverpool struggling at times and I’m thinking sell Diaz, sell Gakpo and go and get Ivan Toney. Him in the middle, Nunez to the right and Salah to the left. Back to back league titles all day long!”

Liverpool urged to make Toney addition
We’re not sure about this one. Straight off the bat, it’s worth pointing out that MacAnthony oversaw Toney’s time at Peterborough a few years back, so perhaps has a vested interest in his success.

Being a Liverpool fan, you can understand why the chairman would be keen to see the 27-year-old make the move to Anfield. Indeed, it isn’t the first time he’s called for this deal to be done.
