Liverpool fans are not looking too happy here in the Football Transfer Tavern as Metro report that they have missed out on yet another forward.
This time at least they did not have to go to the rigmarole of having a medical and then backing out of a deal for reasons unknown.
Instead Karim Benzema simply decided that he would rather sign a new deal at Real Madrid and commit his future to the Champions League winners.
The Frenchman had been heavily linked with a switch to Anfield all summer but made it clear that he wanted to move to a ‘bigger club’ if he was to leave Real Madrid and that Liverpool did not quite fit that image.
As one of our punters notes, after losing Luis Suarez to Barcelona, Brendan Rodgers is in dire need of another forward if he wishes to build on last season – unless fans really think Rickie Lambert can lead their line!
Liverpool fans. If Brendan Rodgers is to get his hands on another striker this summer, who should it realistically be? Let us know your thoughts below.
