Liverpool track Argentine international striker - potential Torres partner

Published Add your comment

Liverpool are being linked with a January move for Argentine striker Lisandro Lopez.

The Argentine international striker is reportedly poised for the exit door at current club Lyon, and Liverpool boss Roy Hodgson is thought to have been 'sounded out' as a potentially interested party in the player.

Lopez began his career at Racing Club in his homeland before joining FC Porto in 2005. Lyon would pay €24 million for the player in 2009, viewing the striker as a replacement for Karim Benzema.

An impressive strike rate in Ligue 1 has led to interest in the player, and the French club are thought to be willing to let the player leave if the price is right, according to the Daily Mirror.

Liverpool have been promised money to spend in the transfer window by new owners NESV, and Hodgson will have to consider if an £17 million move for the player will represent good value for the Anfield club.

A foil for Spanish striker Fernando Torres is thought to be the priority on Merseyside, and the Argentine maverick could prove to be the perfect addition for Liverpool.

Benzema, Mario Gomez and Carlton Cole have all been linked with January moves to Liverpool as the Reds boss considers his options, and additions seem certain in the opening month of 2011.
