It was always going to happen wasn’t it.
Suddenly, Leicester City’s Jamie Vardy is no longer an unfashionable striking option in the eyes of England boss Roy Hodgson, not to mention Premier League football fans in general with the former non-league striker currently leading the way as the Premier League’s top scorer with 10 goals to his name so far this term.
What’s more, the inevitable transfer links to some of England’s bigger fish have materialised in recent days with the Liverpool Echo referencing ESPN reports that claim Vardy is on the Reds’ radar for January.
While scoring enough goals has proved a problem for the Reds in Jurgen Klopp’s three games in charge so far, Christian Benteke did get on the scoresheet against Southampton, not to mention Daniel Sturridge returning to the fold soon so to add Vardy to this mix would be seen as somewhat impulsive.
That said, Reds supporters would love the pacey Foxes frontman bagging regular goals for them at the moment with Divock Origi proving the doubters correct with naive performances as Liverpool’s loan frontman in recent games.
One thing is for sure; Jurgen Klopp will probably be a busy man in the New Year with the new German boss surely wanting to add his own stamp to this team he’s inherited from Brendan Rodgers while disposing of some of the deadwood he deems not good enough to still be on the wage bill.
With all of these things in mind, we’ve devised a list of five players who may well end up following Vardy to Anfield in the January transfer window.
