BvB striker, Erling Haaland would be an amazing fit for Liverpool, Jan Age Fjortoft has said.
Jan recently revealed that the clinical forward needs players that can see his runs and Liverpool is blessed with such footballers.
According to him, he sees Erling ending up in England at some stage even if he is still young and will surely make more mistakes and have a goal drought in the nearest future.
He added that he watched him first at Anfield and he was amazed about how he kept creating space for himself and timing his runs in the box.
His words, “At Dortmund, he has players like Julian Brandt who sees [his perfectly-timed runs].
“He would be a good fit for any club and for Liverpool he is good – when he speaks about United, he speaks about Leeds United!”
“I think he’ll end up in England at some stage, but he is 19 and we should make space to have five games without scoring. We should just wait and see how he is doing – he is at the right place now.”
“The first time I saw him live was at Anfield when he came on and I was amazed that this young kid created so much space.
“He scored one goal but he could have had three or four – he was unbelievable. I was amazed how he created space and how I define that is how his runs are wise and experienced.
“After the game, I interviewed Van Dijk, who I always like to interview because he is a gentleman, and I said ‘I have to ask you about the Norwegian, Erling Haland’, and he just said: ‘Well, we won the game’. So I said ‘Yes, but what do you think about him?’.
