How Liverpool’s 4-3-3 would look with Emre Mor – Borussia Dortmund wonder-kid linked with Anfield move
Liverpool have been closely linked with a move for Borussia Dortmund wonder-kid Emre Mor in the British press recently.
Reds boss Jurgen Klopp is reported to be interested in a one-year loan with a buyout option.
We take a look at how the team could look if Mor were to join over the summer.
Liverpool generally play a 4-3-3 formation which is ideal for the position Mor plays.

The 19-year-old would play as one of the wide players in the Reds forward three if he were to join over the summer.
In the current Liverpool setup Mor would play in either in Mane’s role as he is a right winger.
The Turkish international is a versatile player and could also provide cover for Coutinho on the left or play as a forward if required – as he demonstrated for Turkey against Iceland.
Liverpool lacked depth on the flanks this season and were left exposed following injury to Sadio Mane.
With the Senegal international sidelined Jurgen Klopp’s side lacked replacements who possessed the pace, dribbling ability and eye for goal possessed by Mane.
There is no such thing as a perfect fit but positionally Mor is pretty close to one in Klopp’s system.
The rising is remarkably quick with the ball and his dribbling ability is breathtaking at times.
Mor has brilliant technique, creativity in abundance and an eye for goal. He will have to work on the defensive side of his game and become more of a team player.
The youngster tends to hold onto the ball longer than necessary, attempt to take on more players than necessary and has to develop his defensive ability.
Luckily for Mor, if he were to move he’d be playing under the wing of a manager with the ability to transform young talent into the finished article – like what he achieved with Turkish international Nuri Sahin as well as Ilkay Gundogan.
