Liverpool eye Bundesliga pair


Liverpool are eyeing a deadline day double deal for Bundesliga pair Marko Marin and Lucas Barrios, according to The People.

The Reds have found goals difficult to come by this season, with only six sides having netted less in the Premier League this season.

The absence of Luis Suarez has done nothing to improve the club's fortunes in front of goal, with Andy Carroll having scored just once since the start of the Uruguayan's FA ban.

Links with the likes of Darren Bent have been regular, but reports now suggests the Anfield club will turn their attention to Marin and Barrios.

Only last week, Marin's agent claimed the winger would not be leaving Werder Bremen in the current transfer window after reports emerged the 22-year-old was due to undergo a medical at Tottenham Hotspur.

However, talk of Barrios' departure has been more concrete, with teammate Mohamed Zidan claiming either him or the 27-year-old would be leaving Borussia Dortmund in the January window.

Liverpool's director of football Damien Comolli has reportedly identified Marin as the player to solve the club's wide problems, with Stewart Downing yet to have the desired effect since his summer move from Aston Villa.

Kenny Dalglish has previously dismissed talk that he is looking for new faces for his first-team squad, and after a week which saw Liverpool reach the Carling Cup final and the FA Cup fifth round, at the expense of Manchester City and Manchester United, supporters have good reason to trust the Kop favourite.
