As Liverpool have openly gone on the hunt for a new striker to replace Uruguayan Luis Suarez, what impact will this have on Daniel Sturridge?
In recent weeks the Reds have been linked with a handful of big-name strikers such as Radamel Falcao, Edinson Cavani and more recently, former Chelsea man Samuel Eto'o.
With all these strikers being centre forwards, it leaves the question as to what the Liverpool boss will do with Sturridge.
Sturridge openly admitted that he did not enjoy playing on the wing during stints at Manchester City and Chelsea; and with Rodgers not being a fan of the 4-4-2 system, it remains to be seen whether a big name striker would see the England international pushed back to a wider position.
Were Cavani to be the player to replace Suarez, then he would surely request a central position having been moved onto the flank during his time with PSG.
Speaking last season, Cavani said: "Of course it is not easy. Playing besides players like Zlatan, Thiago Silva, Thiago Motta or Lavezzi is great for any player.
"But for a forward used to scoring and which has to do defensive tasks now, it is not easy."
This means that failure to guarantee Cavani's wish to play centrally could result in Liverpool missing out on their man.
Meanwhile, Liverpool's pursuit of Falcao has supposedly be knocked back. The club are reported to have made an approach with regards a loan deal, only to be told the Colombian is set to join Real Madrid.
With options running out, this begs the question: do Liverpool need a big-name striker? Or would a goal-scoring winger able to thrive in Liverpool's system suffice?
While Cavani and Falcao may be more natural goalscorers, a player such as Marco Reus could be the ideal acquisition to replace Suarez and allow Sturridge to flourish in his preferred position.
