Liverpool striker signing! £30m world class Serie A star, World Cup winner and more possible targets

first_imgWith Daniel Sturridge ruled out for six weeks with a thigh injury, Liverpool’s striker woes have become even worse.Mario Balotelli looks incapable of showing the form which made him one of the hottest prospects in world football, while fellow forwards Rickie Lambert and Fabio Borini are yet to score this campaign in any competition.Manager Brendan Rodgers will now have to have a long think about his options in January but if he does want a new signing there are plenty of strikers out there on the market should he wish to land himself a player who can fire them up the Premier League.So who could the Reds sign in the coming weeks? talkSPORT takes a look…Who would you like Liverpool to sign? Comment below! 6. Gonzalo Higuain on his way out of Napoli… to Anfield? Click the arrow to see more super strikers Liverpool should look at splashing the cash on to save their season! – Liverpool need a goal scorer and they need one fast. With Daniel Sturridge too injury prone and Luis Suarez long gone, the goals have dried up with serious consequences for Brendan Rodgers. In the summer Liverpool took calculated gambles on Mario Balotelli and Rickie Lambert, and now they are paying the price. The lesson should be learned: if at all possible, buy a top quality striker, proven consistently at the highest level. Easier said than done, but the Reds have been linked with a big money move for Higuain, who is said to be unsettled in Italy, amid reports Napoli don’t believe they can keep him beyond this season. Last year he netted 17 times in Serie A last term as well as four goals in five Champions League matches, with eight goals in 15 matches this campaign. The Argentine striker will apparently cost £30m, but for a player of his quality, then that’s worth it, right? 6 6 3. Seydou Doumbia (CSKA Moscow) – proven Champions League class – Click the arrow to see a player Liverpool could target who is regularly banging in the goals – Vanquisher of Manchester City, Ivorian striker Doumbia has been consistent goal scorer for CSKA Moscow since joining from Young Boys and has a stack of individual honours recognising his prowess in front of goal too. The player worth between £15-25million, which would represent great value considering the price paid for the lacklustre Mario Balotelli. 1. Could Marseille’s Andre-Pierre Gignac – 10 goals in 13 games so far this season – With his contract set to finish at the end of the season, there are plenty of clubs sniffing around prolific Frenchman Gignac. Ten strikes in 13 games so far this season means the 28-year-old is looking at his most prolific campaign for Marseille. At 28, Brendan Rodgers may want a younger player considering he has already brought in the experience of Rickie Lambert, but his relatively cheap price tag in January, or a free transfer next summer, could tempt the Reds to make a move now. 6 6 2. Lyon’s Alexandre Lacazzette – 11 goals in just 13 games – Click the arrow to see a possible target who’s already bagged 10 goals this season – A regular goal-getter in France over the last four seasons, Lacazzette is currently in scintillating form. The 23-year-old, who has represented Les Bleus at every level, has managed 11 strikes in just 13 appearances. A new deal signed in September was meant to tie him to Lyon until 2018 but with more excellent displays it may only mean the Ligue 1 side get more money when they sell the talented striker. 6 4. Here’s why Chelsea could be persuaded to sell Andre Schurrle – then click the arrow to see a Champions League talent who could light up Anfield – Liverpool really could sign Schurrle. The proof? Juan Mata’s move to Manchester United. A few years ago the Blues would not have considered selling a top class talent to a potential Premier League rival, but times have changed and the club will consider any deal that could make them a fat profit, in light of Financial Fair Play. Mata was sold for big money when Mourinho decided that he was surplus to requirements and calculated that United weren’t a threat. Likewise, World Cup winner Schurrle is seemingly in danger of falling out of favour with the Portuguese, while Chelsea are well ahead of the Reds in the league. Liverpool would need to break the bank, but they would land a forward who scored three goals and bagged an assist in just 244 minutes of World Cup action last summer, and possesses the dynamism that Rodgers loves in his attackers. 5. Porto’s Jackson Martinez – 53 goals in 70 Portuguese league games – Click the arrow to see another top talent Liverpool should consider breaking the bank for! – The Colombian strike star has been in sensational form in the Primeira Liga over the last three seasons, scoring 53 times in just 70 appearances. His natural ability in front of goal is clear to see with him also scoring ten times in 35 matches at international level. His price tag is certainly high at £30million but with Liverpool’s current issues with finding the back of the net they need a proven goal getter. 6last_img read more
