Report names 8 possible Liverpool January striker targets – We’ve rated & ranked them all

Posted by

Paulo Dybala, Wilfried Bony and Edinson Cavani included…

The Mirror has (rather tenuously, I might add) compiled a list of eight strikers Liverpool could target when the January transfer window opens.

With Daniel Sturridge perpetually injured, and Mario Balotelli suffering from his own fitness issues, Rickie Lambert has had to lead the line on his own recently.

Few would argue that for a club with top four aspirations, this isn’t good enough – and a dynamic striker addition would be met with approval by most of us…

Here’s the forwards named in the report, in the order in which we think the Reds SHOULD consider targeting them…

8) Diafra Sakho – West Ham

Lazy reporting from the Mirror? We think so. Sakho only arrived in the summer, and to be fair, has hit the ground running at West Ham. Time and time again however, there have been examples of forwards who start Premier League life brightly, and then fade into obscurity. Amir Zakhi, Papiss Cisse and Michu, to name but a few… Right now, Sakho would be seriously overpriced, and the Hammers would have no intention of selling either.

7) Saido Berahino – West Brom

Berahino could develop into a very good striker, but the likely inflated price tag for a young English forward makes us baulk. Last term he scored five top flight goals in 32 matches, and while he’s bagged seven in 12 this time around, he hasn’t found the net in seven. Talented, but he has yet to properly prove himself at the highest level. If the Baggies demanded a reasonable fee, his potential acquisition could become a little more exciting.
