Liverpool to launch late move for new striker

In the wake of Liverpool's hard-fought victory against Southampton, manager Brendan Rodgers further excited fans by admitting he is the market for a new front man. 

With Luis Suarez' £75million move to Barcelona complete, Liverpool have a massive void to fill in order to cover for the loss of the Uruguayan's 31 goals last term. Rodgers has already bought in England international Rickie Lambert from Southampton, but many fans and pundits alike believe Liverpool's new number '9' along with 21-goal Daniel Sturridge isn't enough. 


Having been linked with numerous big-name strikers in recent weeks such as Radamel Falcao, Edinson Cavani and Samuel Eto'o it is clear to see the Northern Irishman's intent; something further reinforced with his Southampton post-match comments.

"I do still think we need another striker," he said. "It is something that we will look at but that will depend on the availability of one. Sunday was about winning and we got there.


"So we will search for that through to the end of the window but you see the players, the quality that we have."

Since these comments were made, a late loan move for Monaco hitman Falcao, and a £50 million move for PSG's Edinson Cavani have been suggested. However, many reports in recent days suggest a move for free agent Samuel Eto'o is believed to be Rodgers' first choice but perhaps not the favoured choice of the Anfield faithful.
