Liverpool hold part-exchange advantage in African striker chase


Liverpool could hold an advantage in the race to sign Moussa Sow, according to reports.

French publication Le Parisien claims the Senegalese striker could move to Anfield as part-exchange for Joe Cole, who has made a great impression at Lille thus far on loan from the Merseysiders.

The Daily Mail goes on to claim that Kenny Dalglish is keen to strengthen in the attacking department at Liverpool, with just 24 goals in 20 Barclays Premier League games thus far for the Reds.

With just 18 months left on his current deal in Ligue 1, Les Douges could look to cash-in on Sow, who scored 26 goals in 51 matches last term and has added ten more in the current campaign.

Arsenal and Spurs have also been linked with the 25-year-old forward, but the reports now suggest that Liverpool are in the race for Sow, who has previously been on the radar of Russian and Turkish clubs in 2012.

With Luis Suarez currently serving an eight-match ban and Andy Carroll struggling for form on Merseyside, the transfer market appears a legitimate option for 'King Kenny'.

The Scot confirmed that he has the chance to be 'active' should he wish, although Liverpool aren't currently looking to sign anyone despite speculation to the contrary.

Wilfried Zaha and Darren Bent have both been linked with moves, and now Sow can be added to the list of possible Liverpool targets.
