The January Transfer Window is just around the corner, and with Liverpool clearly needing to strengthen their side, we take a look at who would be great signings for the Reds, with these being some of the biggest names doing the rounds at the moment
Newcastle United FC – Senegal – ST – 27
Estimated Value: £9 million
The Newcastle man has proven his goalscoring ability and with a release clause of around £9million it is hard to see why no one has snapped him up yet. However might be hard to prize away from a team where he can currently link up with Senegal team-mate Papiss Cisse.
Athletic Bilbao – Spain – ST – 27
Estimated Value: £28 million
The Spaniard has a large release clause of about £28 million, but on his day is one of the best strikers around. Scoring 29 goals last season in all competitions, and was also the top Spanish scorer last season in the Primera Division. Currently looking for new team as he has been frozen out at Bilbao for not signing a new contract.
West Bromwich Albion FC – Republic of Ireland – ST – 25
Estimated Fee: £13 million
Irishman Long may not be everyone’s first choice, but he has started this season well, scoring 7 goals in 15 appearances, only 1 less goal than the whole of last season. Might be more prolific if he did join Liverpool with Suarez and Sterling playing around him, as he is an out and out striker, so may deliver if given more opportunity.
Chelsea FC – England – ST – 23
Esimated Fee: £14 million
Sturridge was linked with a move to Liverpool a few seasons ago as part of the Fernando Torres deal, however nothing came of it. Strong, young and has an eye for goal, which is all the qualities he needs to become a top class striker, exactly what Liverpool need. However he is nowhere near as prolific as other strikers we have been linked to, such as Ba or Llorente, and FSG might have to splash the cash to get a word class striker in this January.
Blackpool FC – England – LW – 20
Estimated Fee: £6 million
The 20 year old son of Paul Ince only left Liverpool in 2011, however has really proven himself this season at Blackpool, scoring 13 goals in 20 games, and despite not being an out and out striker, a goalscorer is what Liverpool need. He will already know the players, the set up etc, so would fit in comfortably and easily, and with Rodgers wanting to promote youth talent, he could thrive at Liverpool.
So who would you like to see Liverpool sign in the next transfer window? A striker is a must, but who do you think would be most suitable?
I’m sure we all think we should be Liverpool manager, however we are not all lucky enough to be the Liverpool manager however, we might have to settle for second best, in which case I decided to sell my xbox, and purchase Football Manager right away, and take Liverpool straight to the top of the table!
