Liverpool fans cannot wait to hear what Metro have to say today in the Football Transfer Tavern and after their lacklustre Champions League defeat to FC Basel last night, we cannot blame them.
Not only do the Reds have some serious issues at the back – and that is putting it mildly – their forward line is also coming in for a fair bit of stick as well.
Last season, no matter how poor the Reds were at the back, they had the likes of Daniel Sturridge and Luis Suarez to rescue them up front.
Now, with Suarez gone and Sturridge out injured, goals are getting quite hard come by.
Mario Balotelli has been brought in from AC Milan for £16 million but that has not been the answer Liverpool and Brendan Rodgers were looking for – yet – and that means the Reds manager is looking elsewhere.
The Northern Irishman is casting his glance towards Real Madrid with Karim Benzema set to be the subject of a £38.8 million bid from last season’s Premier League runners-up come the January transfer window.
Liverpool fans. Is buying another forward the answer or do you need to be focusing on shoring up the defence? Let us know your thoughts below.
