Liverpool are considering a loan move for Athletico Madrid striker Diego Forlan. Last summer, talk of Forlan moving back to the Premiership was rife following an excellent World Cup campaign with Uruguay but the frontman moved to quash those rumours.
Kenny Dalglish is in the market for a new striker despite spending almost £60m on Andy Carroll and Luis Suarez. With rumours that David N’Gog could be set to leave Anfield, this would leave only Dirk Kuyt as the only other recognised striker at the club.
Footybunker.com reports that Liverpool favour a loan deal as there would be little if any chance to resell Forlan.
Athletico Madrid are looking to reinvigorate their strike-force having sold prize asset Sergio Aguero to Manchester City this week. With money to burn from both that sale and the transfer of David de Gea to Manchester United, the next few weeks are certain to involve significant activity from the Madrid club concerning bringing in new strikers.
This could well leave Forlan on the sidelines and he may jump at the opportunity to right the wrongs of his first spell in the Premiership with Manchester United during which he averaged worse than one goal every six games.
This itself may pose a problem though for Liverpool fans who may be apprehensive about the former United play joining up with the squad. This being said however, Forlan’s quality cannot be doubted as undermined by his Golden Ball award at the last World Cup.
