After Liverpool pulled the plug on the deal to sign France international Loic Remy, the search begins for a new striker.
Remy's move to the Reds was called off after his medical raised concerns to Liverpool. This situation has left the Merseyside club with a striker sized hole in their squad.
A deal for Belgian international Divock Origi is about to be announced, however the young striker will be loaned back to Lille for the forthcoming season.
Finding a striker who can perform in the Premier League week in and week out is no easy task and Liverpool will now make this a priority ahead of the start of the new season.
The Reds had expressed an interest in signing Romelu Lukaku from Chelsea earlier in the summer, however the Belgian player is about to be confirmed as an Everton player, in a reported £20 million deal.
Also rumours linking Liverpool with German superstar Marco Reus have been littering the internet, however there has been no confirmation from either club that this is a potential deal in the making.
With the season kicking off for Liverpool on Sunday August 17 against Southampton, the Reds are now under pressure to add to their attacking options.
