34-goal Chelsea target very keen on joining Liverpool


Patson Daka news

Daka very keen on Liverpool transfer

Chelsea have received a potential transfer blow with Patson Daka eager to join Liverpool this summer.

The Zambian had a superb 2020/21 campaign with Red Bull Salzburg, registering 34 goals and 12 assists from 42 appearances.

A recent report from Football Insider claimed that the Blues and Reds are interested in signing the 22-year-old striker.

The same publication cites that the Reds are leading the race with Daka 'very keen' on playing under manager Jurgen Klopp.

Roberto Firmino had a disappointing season with the Reds, scoring just nine goals from 48 appearances in all competitions.

Klopp could be eyeing a high-profile signing to lead the line, and Daka could be available for a bargain price this summer.

Daka reportedly has a release clause of just £17 million on his contract.

West Ham United have also been linked with the marksman, but he has snubbed the opportunity to join them.

The Hammers are searching for a new striker after qualifying for the Europa League group stage for the first time.
