Liverpool eye January move for West Brom striker

Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers is reportedly lining up a £12 million swoop for West Brom striker Shane Long, according to Daily Star.


Shane Long


Liverpool's striking issues have come to the fore this season, with Luis Suarez carrying the majority of the striking responsibility, having netted 10 times and being the only player to have scored more than once in the league.


With Fabio Borini, who is currently injured with a broken foot, the only other recognised striker in the 1st team squad, Liverpool are eager to add Long, who's netted seven times in 14 games for the Baggies so far this season.


Contact has reportedly been made with Long's agents about a possible move in the January transfer window, as Liverpool look to improve on their 11th position in the league.


Long, who has worked with Rodgers in the past at Reading, is into his second season at West Brom following his £6m switch from the Royals, with another two and a half years still to run on his current contract.


Only last week he stated his joy that the Baggies may be involved in Europe next season following their promising start to this campaign. However, the appeal of a big club like Liverpool could persuade the Republic of Ireland international to join the Reds, who have won just two of their previous seven Premier League games.


However, with the Hawthorns club sitting in fifth, and themselves pushing for at least a Europa League spot, prying their star striker away may be a tough ask, and manager Steve Clarke is said to be extremely reluctant to let him go.


Liverpool narrowly won 1-0 on the weekend against Southampton, whilst West Brom suffered a home defeat to Stoke City, also 1-0.
