Liverpool Transfer Targets: 5 Ideal Suarez Partners
Here is a list of 5 potential Liverpool transfer targets this January, including Huntelaar, Gomez, Podolski, Pato and Damiao.
Liverpool’s biggest problem this season is their inabillity to score goals. With Luis Suarez doing his usual magic, Liverpool need a player to play alongside him, and be the one to make use of that magic to score goals. As Andy Carroll is struggling for form, Liverpool may be looking for a striker in January. Here is a list of 5 players Liverpool should consider buying:
1. Klaas-Jan Huntelaar
The Dutch striker has been in deadly form this season, scoring 12 league goals for his club Schalke, and finishing as top scorer of the Euro Cup Qualifications with 12 goals in 8 matches for Oranje. The striker would be available for a reasonable price, and would probably be happy to move to a club of Liverpool’s stature. The only problem is his age, as he is 28 years old.
2. Mario Gomez
Gomez is a player Liverpool have a long term interest in. Considering that he is in fantastic form, and that Bayern are in the Champions League, it will be hard to get him. It would probably take an Andy Carroll type fee for Bayern to let him go, but if Liverpool get him they will have a player that can, when in form, score goals for fun.
3. Lukas Podolski
Another German player that Liverpool have a long term interest in. He has outgrown his club Köln a long time ago, and it is a miracle no big club has snapped him up already. He has impressive on-field inteligence, is very creative and is also a proven goal-scorer. Would be available for a good price, and is the most likely target from this list.
4. Alexandre Pato
The young Brazilian is a fantastic prospect. He has fallen out from Allegri’s plans due to injury and lack of form, but when fit, he is one of the deadliest strikers in the world. It is doubtfull whether he would want to join Liverpool, but if yes, then Kenny should definitely snap him up. The price would be a very high one, but FSG have proved that they are ready to spend big on young talent.
5. Leandro Damiao
Liverpool, Arsenal and Tottenham are reportedly interested in the young Brazilian prodigy. Reports have suggested that he will be heading to Ukraine for €34 million, but these rumours have disappeared in recent days. The striker is a fantastic prospect, but the question is are FSG ready to spend a huge amount of money on a rather unknown and unproven player? The striker would be a big risk, but a risk that could pay off hugely.
Those are my suggestions, feel free to leave your own in the comments section.
