Mario Mandzukic (Atletico Madrid)
The Atletico Madrid man has been linked with a move to Merseyside in the recent past (via Daily Express), so may already be on their radar. He has proved with Bayern Munich especially, and in some cases with his current side, that he is more than capable of playing as a sole striker, which would be a massive benefit to Liverpool, should their transfer budget not stretch to two quality forwards. Having predominantly used one striker for the entirety of the campaign, bringing in the Croatian would not require major upheaval in Rodgers’ tactical plans.
The Express also suggest that the 29-year-old wants to leave the Vicente Calderon, which will surely make a deal easier to engineer.
