Should Roy Move for Santa Cruz?

By on November 27, 2010


With Liverpool on the lookout for a quality striker in the January transfer window, they could do a lot worse than looking to sign Manchester City’s want-away striker, Roque Santa Cruz.

The Paraquayan forward, now aged 29, has rarely featured for multi-million Man City since he signed from Blackburn Rovers. In fact, he has only scored 3 times in 20 appearances for the Sky blues. Cruz, however, has been much more prolific throughout his career scoring 23 in 57 starts for Blackburn and 23 in 78 for his national team.

With Sam Allardyyce offering £4 million for the striker to return to Blackburn, should Roy Hodgson have a punt and make a bid for a player who would compliment Fernando Torres upfront?
At a reported £4 million, I would certainly sign him up for Liverpool.

    at £4m? certainly!
    however, i don’t think he meets the criteria for our new owners!
