The transfer market has been busy with some massive signings joining the Premier League bandwagon and one of the busiest clubs in the market has been Liverpool.

This summer saw a huge influx of stars at Anfield after the departure of controversial striker Luis Suarez for £75 million to Barcelona,.

Brendan Rodgers is optimistic about the upcoming season and has already landed eight signings in this transfer window.

Suarez sale helped signing new arrivals

Liverpool are now looking towards signing their ninth recruit ahead of the 2014/15 season which could be their final arrival of the summer.

They are interested in signing Fiorentina striker Giuseppe Rossi for a fee reported to be £20 million.

Success in Spain and Italy

The Italian forward joined Fiorentina from Villarreal and became an instant success having this best season for the Florence based club, scoring 16 goals in 21 outings in Serie A last term.

A former Manchester United player, Rossi managed only five Premier League appearances for the Red Devils before moving to La Liga side, Villarreal and in five seasons amassed a total of 82 goals.

The 27-year-old was on the 30-man shortlist for Italy but failed to make the cut for the 23 member squad that travelled to Brazil for the World Cup.

Ideal for Liverpool

A quick-thinking individual, Rossi has the pace and skills to succeed at Liverpool with finishing, long shots, through balls being his trademark.

The Reds already have Englishmen Daniel Sturridge and Rickie Lambert at their disposal and bringing in Rossi would complete the transfer acquisitions of the summer for Liverpool.

The fact that Fiorentina failed to secure a Champions League spot could mean a number of their star players would leave Stadio Artemio Franchi Stadium with Colombian winger Juan Cuadrado seemingly destined to join Manchester United.

Rossi signing for Liverpool could bring in funds helping the Italian side to push for their bid to finish in the top three in Serie A next season.
