However, on the first day of the Premier League rematch, PSV Eindhoven, where Huckpo originally played, issued an official statement confirming that the team had reached an agreement with Liverpool, another powerhouse in the Premier League.

Huckpo has emerged in international competitions in the past two years. Last month, at the age of 23, he participated in the World Cup for the first time. He scored a goal in each of the three group matches and became the player with the most goals in this competition in the Netherlands.

Since Liverpool striker Luis Diaz has injured his left knee since early October, the team assessed at least two months of recuperation.

Now that Dias's knee injury has intensified and it takes longer to recover, the Red Army decided to poach Huckpo from PSV Eindhoven in order to speed up the process of strengthening the striker.

After successfully seeking Huckpo to join, this is the second time in half a year that Liverpool have preemptively intercepted a player who is also interested in Manchester United.

The former introduced frontcourt player Darwin Nunez with a sky-high transfer fee of 75 million euros (about 2.45 billion Taiwan dollars) this summer. The season will be more competitive.
