The Mirror have left Liverpool fans in the Football Transfer Tavern buzzing at the prospect of signing Villarreal star Luciano Vietto who is dubbed the ‘new Sergio Aguero’.
Brendan Rodgers wants to sign the 21-year-old Argentine ace as he is confident Vietto can fire the Reds into the top four and help fill the huge goalscoring gap left by Luis Suarez.
It will cost the Reds boss around £12 million to acquire Vietto’s services but it could turn out to be the signing of the century and they are not the only club interested with Inter Milan and Real Madrid also sniffing around for the striker.
The addition of a top striker is seen as a priority at Anfield after Mario Balotelli now accumulated ten Premier League fixtures without registering a single goal this season.
Whilst in stark contrast, Vietto has made himself one of the most feared forwards in the Spain after netting 12 goals in 23 league and cup games for the Yellow Submarine.
