If reports are to be believed, Liverpool could turn to Arsenal star Bukayo Saka and rebuild their attack.

Saka has stood out at the Emirates since his senior call-up in 2018 and has already scored five Premier League goals this season, equaling the total tally recorded in the previous stint.

According to Ian McGarry, the Reds are hoping to sell at least two of their forwards and are eyeing the future.

That’s where the 20-year-old winger can come in as he has a lot of productive years ahead and fits the style of the Merseysiders.

McGarry told The Transfer Window podcast: “We have reported on The Transfer Window podcast that Liverpool are looking to the future with regard to the fact that they expect to sell at least two of their attacking players.

“Saka is the player who suits Liverpool’s style.”

However, Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta has no intention of losing one of his best players to rebuild the Gunners.

That is why the people of North London held exploratory talks with Saka’s representatives to extend their contract, which expires in 2024.

But Liverpool could present as an interesting prospect for the England international as he looks to compete at the highest level.

McGarry said: “My understanding is that there have been talks with their representatives at Arsenal regarding giving him a contract upgrade.

“Liverpool will provide him the opportunity and platform to play and compete at the highest level.

“And that would certainly be something that I’m told he and his reps are very interested in.”

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp is a big fan of Saka as he recently praised him, describing him as a “young and exciting player”.
