Liverpool's decision not to sign an attacker this summer has come under some criticism from sections of supporters and fans have already identified two players they'd like to see move to Anfield.

Both Raphinha and Allan Saint-Maximin were on the scoresheet as Leeds United and Newcastle drew 1-1 in the Premier League on Friday night.

The Reds have been long-term admirers of Raphinha, who has impressed at Leeds following his arrival last year.

He scored six goals and registered nine assists in the Premier League last term and he gave Marcelo Bielsa's side an early lead against Newcastle.

Saint-Maximin levelled the scoreline just before half-time at St James' Park and fans believe either player would've been quality additions for the Reds in the summer.

One supporter tweeted: "Saint-Maximin or Raphinha - don't really care which, but get one of them to Liverpool Football Club."

Another shared: "Two wingers Liverpool should have gone for in the summer scoring there, Raphinha and Saint-Maximin, both would have been quality back up especially when AFCON comes around."

One posted: "We need at least one of Saint-Maximin or Raphinha at Liverpool. They both are absolutely top class."

Saint-Maximin has entered his third season with Newcastle after he signed from French side Nice in 2019.

Jurgen Klopp described the 24-year-old as a 'proper footballer' before the two sides met at Anfield back in April.

The winger has reportedly been monitored by top six sides and he was linked with a £40m move to rivals Everton over the summer, though nothing came of the rumours.

Saint-Maximin's current contract expires in 2026 so he will no doubt demand a sizeable fee, while Raphinha's deal with Leeds runs until 2024.
