The Reds boss always admired the Brazilian striker. Bobby has always been a fan favorite since he joined the English giants.

The Brazilian joined the Merseyside club in the 2015-16 season. The Reds paid the Bundesliga striker £29M to bring the 31-year-old to the Premier League on a five-year contract. They later awarded the forward a £180k-a-week extension.

Importance of LFC’s number 9

This season Bobby played 13 matches in the Premier League where he scored 7 goals and gave 3 assists. He has an expected XG of 4.2.

Liverpool number 9 will also be helpful in guiding and assisting Merseyside’s new signing Darwin Nunez. The Uruguayan joined the Red’s side with a record transfer deal. But since his impressive performance in community shield the LFC’s number 27 is struggling to perform.

Bobby has vast experience in dealing with such difficulties and he could help the Uruguayan to reach his potential.
