But according to The Independent, Liverpool could soon sign a player that more than matches the striker in the legend stakes.
Reports are suggesting that the Merseyside club could snap up veteran Spanish goalkeeper Victor Valdes on a free transfer next month.
However, the signing still depends on how he continues to recover from a cruciate ligament injury sustained in March when playing for Barcelona.
Liverpool feel they need to bring in another keeper to keep Simon Mignolet on his toes with Brendan Rodgers deciding that Australian reserve keeper Brad Jones is not pushing the Belgian stopper enough.
The club had enquired about Reading goalkeeper Alex McCarthy but he eventually joined QPR and led Rodgers and co to look elsewhere.
It had looked like Monaco would be signing Valdes, however his injury put pay to that idea and a move to Liverpool now looks the most likely.
