Liverpool are going to have to buy a new striker in this January transfer window as they need a strike partner for Torres or someone to fill in for Torres when he is injured or out of form. It is too early to see if Dalglish is going to want to play with two strikers upfront or rather stick with Gerrard playing behind Torres. I guess at the end of the day Dalglish will pick a formation which suites the players he has at his disposal. If Liverpool manage to bring in another top class striker then I am sure Dalglish would opt to play the new striker upfront alongside Torres.

Liverpool have been linked with a lot of strikers this January but three names seem to be the front runners: Alvaro Negredo, Luis Suarez and Ricky van Wolfswinkel.

Negredo has been linked with Liverpool in the past, ever since the days of Rafa. Negredo is currently playing for Sevilla and the Spanish team may be willing to sell him if they get an offer in the region of £17m. Negredo, who is 25 years old, has been attracting interest from a number of top clubs following his impressive displays in La Liga.

Suarez is another name we are constantly hearing in the press and it seems like the Ajax star is set to leave for either Liverpool or Tottenham. Suarez seems to be a bit ‘too’ small for the English game but there is no doubting he has great ability as a striker. Hopefully if he does join Liverpool he would flourish in the English game unlike his fellow countryman Diego Forlan. Suarez would cost in the region of £18m as Ajax are desperate for some cash. Being only 23 years old, Suarez fits the bill perfectly for the future of Liverpool.

Looking at Ricky van Wolfswinkel who has been dubbed the next Marco van Basten in Holland, he has also been linked with a move to Liverpool. The 21 year old striker from FC Utrecht is one of the hottest prospects in Dutch football and has scored 11 goals this season in 17 starts; adding to his tally of 10 goals last season in his debut campaign. It may be considered a gamble going for such a young striker but it may be a gamble that will pay off. Van Wolfswinkel would prove to be the cheaper of the three options with a reported £10m price tag.

Who should Liverpool sign: Negredo, Suarez or van Wolfswinkel?

    suarez and van wolfwinkel are good players but negredo would give us an extra dimention to our play, we havent got any whos strong enough to hold up the ball and bully defenders. We should look at bringing in sone one who can beat a player for the wings it pains me to say it but like nani.

    I would have Honda as the second attacker. Great at running at players and wicked at set pieces

  4. Ronnie says:

    we need all 3 if we are going to compete for the title and 2 if we want a top 4 finish…i hope the owners have got very deep pockest or we are fucked!

    I’d rather see us stick with what we got and jsut add wingers to the first team, rather than see us spending any significant sums on Negredo or Wolfswinkle. They’re barely better than what we’ve already got.

    Suarez is head and shoulders above both of them and we should definitely be focusing our energy on getting him in, while his reputation and transfer value is artificially low.

    JAY YOUR BANG ON,,, can not even think of why a comment like this would appear on here?

    “SUAREZ TO SMALL FOR THE PREMIERSHIP” that for me is most stupid things i have ever heard.

    SUAREZ at his age of 23 would bring massive value in the deal, he speaks dutch, with his latin links he would link up with over 5 of the present team that we have.
    He is good in the air, is strong on the ball, great free kick taker, runs all day and is never really has injuries to get over.

    The shirt sales alone would recoup alot to the club.
    He would for me give us another option as he can float out wide and play the link man too…

    He also give us at his age his best years ahead of him,, for me when your talking about star quality and a young deal which has win win all over it this is the guy.

    if liverpool can not get players like this now before the price goes up and before he moves now, we might as well pack it in.

    Use Pacheco up front with torres, he will improve through-out time. then we spend most of our kitty on 2 well-known wingers. and a decent full back. hazard and turan would be favourites for me. then Coentrao would be ideal. Young,Pacey and a good additude to football. YNWA!
