Liverpool make Bent inquiry

Liverpool have inquired about the availability of Aston Villa striker Darren Bent and will look to make a January bid, according to Metro.

The England international has been on Liverpool’s radar since January and Liverpool director of football Damien Comolli admitted he was considering a bid before Bent moved to Villa. Bent was ruled out of Villa’s game with Liverpool earlier this month and was spotted shopping in Cambridge at the same time his Villa teammates were playing the Reds.

Liverpool boss Kenny Dalglish is looking for a striker after bemoaning his side’s lack of clinical edge. The Reds have only scored 21 goals so far this season in the league and Bent is always good for goals. The England international may be available for less than the £24m Villa paid from Sunderland and Liverpool are ready to pay around £20m for Bent. A move for Bent comes following the hefty ban Luis Suarez has received following his racist abuse charge.

Reds striker Andy Carroll is expected to start against Newcastle tonight, but if Bent makes the switch to Anfield, reports are bound to circulate over the future of Carroll at Anfield.
