With Liverpool's controversial star Luis Suarez on his way to Barcelona for an estimated £75 million, Liverpool now find themselves with a problem.

First is how can they replace a striker that netted 31 goals in the Premier League last season.

Like Tottenham; Liverpool now have a good sum of money, reported to be in the region of £75 million, but now they have to replace Suarez whilst spending the money wisely.

With the rescent additions of: Adam Lallana, Rickie Lambert, Emre Cann, Markovic and Dejan Lovren Liverpool now have players that add depth to their squad.


But even though all of these players have quality, none can be seen to replicate the remarkable season Suarez had at Anfield. Liverpool need to replace Suarez and it will cost big money but the risk is spending a hefty sum and the player being a flop. 

The best blueprint Liverpool can follow on how not to spend would be Spurs. When Gareth Bale swapped White Hart Lane for the Bernabeu, Tottenham quickly responded by spending £30 million on Eric Lamela and £28 million for Roberto Soldado.


Liverpool's best thing to do would be to carefully scout all of their targets much like what they did when they signed Suarez for £25 million from Ajax.

So far rumours are that Liverpool are interested in the likes of Edinson Cavani, Wilfred Bony and Karim Benzema but none of these players looks like heading to Merseyside.
