Rodgers looking for another striking option
Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers has admitted he is still looking for another striker to add to his squad depth before the transfer window closes, Sky Sports is reporting.
Following the sale of Luis Suarez to Barcelona, along with the loans of Luis Alberto and Iago Aspas and doubts over Fabio Borini’s future, Rodgers has realistically only been left with Daniel Sturridge and new signing Rickie Lambert as out and out strikers.
Sturridge however did continue his hugely impressive Liverpool record at the weekend after scoring in the 2-1 win over Southampton – he now has 36 goals in just 50 matches for the club.
The club has seen a huge influx of players over the summer but are yet to seal a deal for another forward, following the collapse of the proposed move for Loic Remy because the player failed his medical.
Rodgers has brought in Adam Lallana, Lambert, Dejan Lovren, Lazar Markovic, Emre Can, Javi Manquillo and Alberto Moreno – while young striker Divock Origi was loaned back to former club Lille for the coming season.
On the subject of targets Rodgers said: “I do still think we need another striker. It is something that we will look at but that will depend on the availability of one.”
The Reds have been linked with a number of players over the course of the summer, with the likes of Mario Balotelli the sort of names speculated over.
