Liverpool set to beat Chelsea to the signing of Premier League striker

Charlie AustinMetro have Liverpool fans here in the Football Transfer Tavern looking up with interest as they seem to think that the Reds are set to beat Chelsea to Charlie Austin.

The forward looks set to leave Queens Park Rangers this summer and after a brilliant season in the top flight of English football, he has attracted a few admiring glances and as one of our regulars notes, we can understand clubs looking at Austin, but Liverpool need a world class main man up top and we do not think Austin is that man.

Brendan Rodgers is not a favourite of our regulars these days in the tavern and a few of our punters note that they wouldn’t trust him with £10 let alone £100 million again!

Liverpool fans. Is this just another example of you signing a second rate player when Chelsea will probably land a world class forward this summer? Let us know your thoughts below.
