Liverpool Turn Attention To å£30m Serie A Hitman

By in News

Liverpool are readying a move for Napoli striker Gonzalo Higuain in a bid to resurrect their season.

åÊ

The Argentinian has scored 9 times and bagged 4 assists in Serie A so far this season for Rafael Benitez’s team, and the club are yet to rule out a possible exit for the 27-year-old.

åÊ

Despite the Reds recent improvement which has seen them take 11 points from a possible 15, they are still relying on goals from midfield.

åÊ

Rickie Lambert, Mario Balotelli and Fabio Borini have just 1 league goal between them all season, while Daniel Sturridge remains sidelined. åÊ

åÊ

Higuain has been continuously linked with Liverpool throughout the current window, and the Independent report that with the misfiring Mario Balotelli potentially heading back to Serie A with Juventus, Brendan Rodgers may yet look to bring the Argentina international to Anfield.åÊ

åÊ

Despite the former Real Madrid man’s sterling record of 26 goals in 49 games for the Naples outfit, doubts about the player’s ability to lead the attack as the lone striker still remain.åÊ

åÊ

Should the Reds get their man, Higuain would most likely be paired up top with Sturridge, a set up that worked majestically last season with Luis Suarez and Daniel Sturridge scoring a combined 52 Premier League goals.
