Liverpool considering Wilfried Bony & Samuel Eto'o after triple rejection

Published Add your comment

Liverpool are considering moves for striker duo Wilfried Bony and Samuel Eto'o after being rejected in their pursuits of Karim Benzema, Radamel Falcao and Edinson Cavani, according to Ben Smith of the BBC.

Reds boss Brendan Rodgers appears desperate to land a top striker in this transfer window after the Merseyside outfit sold star man Luis Suarez to Barcelona earlier this summer.

It appears, however, that the likes of Benzema and Co. won't be joining the Anfield outfit in this window. This will come as a blow to Rodgers, with the three players recognised as some of the leading forwards in world football. 

Benzema now looks set to play a key role for Madrid this season, with the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo, James Rodriguez and Gareth Bale playing alongside him at the Bernabeu. Falcao and Cavani, on the other hand, could still be on the move in this window, with both players seemingly unsettled in Spain.

It appears, though, that Cavani won't be replacing his fellow Uruguayan international teammate at Anfield. Liverpool fans would have certainly been happy if the club had landed a player in the calibre of Cavani, but Rodgers appears to have already moved on. 

Next move 

Smith has suggested that Eto'o is still being considered by Rodgers, but Liverpool have yet to meet his camp over a potential move to Anfield. The veteran striker, of course, played under Jose Mourinho at Chelsea last term, and may well want to prove a point to his former manager in 2014/15. 

Bony, meanwhile, who enjoyed a fine debut Premier League season at Swansea City last term, has also been identified as a potential Liverpool signing, but it appears that his wage demands are a problem for the Anfield outfit. 

With Daniel Sturridge and Rickie Lambert already at the club, Reds fans will be hoping the club can pull off one more striker deal to help the club for the 2014/15 season. The Reds have also signed young Belgian forward Divock Origi, but he has rejoined French outfit Lille for the up coming campaign. Liverpool fans will be hoping, though, that Origi stars for the club for the long term. 

Liverpool fans: Who do you want your club to sign in this transfer window!? Do you need a marquee signing? Have your say below!
