I see this a lot as a suggestion and its not one I agree with at all. Firmino and Salah are so ridiculously different in playing style nobody could hope to match up to both of them. Mane is probably the closest to being able to come some way to being close to both combined in one player which is part of what makes him so rare and world class. We don’t actually need cover for Firmino as we have Minamino and Mane who are probably as close as anyone not named Havertz to being able to replicate what Bobby does so spending money with covering Firmino in mind seems like a waste of resources and time. What we need is a player who can replicate at LF what Salah and Mane do wide. That way Mane can spend a significant amount of his games competing with Firmino at F9 and Salah at RF as first back up to them two without losing too much in those two positions. This would mean all 4 players would get plenty of game time....and buy 1 good player who can play across all 3 positions decently.
