Liverpool continue to be linked with a move for a new striker to back-up Carroll and Suarez. It seems David Ngog is almost set to move to Bolton so Kenny Dalglish is going to need to bring someone in over the next couple of days.

Two Premier League strikers are being linked with moves to Liverpool: Wolves’ Irish International Kevin Doyle and Wigan’s Hugo Rodallega.

Wolves have said that they are not willing to sell Doyle but I am sure if they are offered a fee in excess of £10million they will consider selling their 27-year-old star striker. Doyle may not be a prolific scorer at Wolves but he has Premier League experience and maybe lining him up against better quality players will bring out the best in him.

As for Rodallega, the Colombian striker is still at loggerheads with Wigan as he is refusing to sign a new deal with them. Wigan do not want to let go of Rodallega but they may be forced to do so if the player wants to leave.

Wigan boss, Roberto Martinez said: “He is a very important part of our plans. If he does well enough, it’s only fair that we do not stand in his way if the chance of a big move comes along.”

So if Liverpool are to sign either of these players, which one would you prefer?

Which of these two strikers should Liverpool sign?

    Both of these are not good enough… If we have £4m from Ngog, £9m from Aqualani (although I think we should keep him) or Kuyt and we should go and sign a decent striker…. Shame we didn’t sign Mata instead of that useless plonk Henderson….

    • rafeh Abbasi says:

      we couldnt sign mata cause we dont have champion league football..

      Wanker. If you had any brain, you’d afford Henderson the time to get his feet wet. After all, you want to give Aquillani another 9 months.
      Sure maybe you’re right!! What would Kenny know about it…..

  2. Lewis says:

    Doyle definetly.

  3. Mike says:

    Woulds have preferred shane long to the two. Since long’s been signed by west brom, maybe we could go for toivonen, in addition to cahill and adam johnson.

  4. Red Ron says:

    The best Liverpool sides of the past have always contained an Irishman or at least
    An Irish international (the luck of the Irish),so in my opinion we should go for Doyle. Go get him KK/DC .

  6. JD says:

    Neither – both fucking shit!!! Bring through Adam Morgan and get Sturridge whether we lose Meireles or not…..

  7. Myleftball says:

    I don’t know why every Liverpool fan seems to hate Henderson when he has only played 2 games and looks a great prospect??? And love aquilani, when he has been deemed surplus to requirements from passed and current Liverpool managers?? Not good enough end of.. Doyle would be a great addition to the squad, strong in the air, intellegent, holds the ball up very well and has an eye for goal..

    • David says:

      Good call lad. The Henderson thing is just a result of mindless idiots reading tabloid bullshit, who are trying to cling onto as many new signings as possible, to write shit about. Fuck them. Henderson will be a super player for the Reds, and soon.

  8. Jamie says:

    Over 10 million for kevin doyle? Thats not smart bussiness, shane long would have been ideal…..

  9. Ajayi moses says:

    Why nt bid 4 osaze, dat guy is gona b a good buy

  10. Gerrardious says:

    hw bout non of the above?
    @Teslim: are u fuc*ing kiddin me??

  11. Ajayi moses says:

    Teslim u ar 2 raw 4 ma liking

  12. Euan says:

    Maybe we should make Gerrard be our third striking option since we have so may fighting for midfield spots.

  13. aboyus says:

    if we have another chance to land higuain from real madrid, why we don’t take him? or maybe we can offer for Marin. what say you?

  14. fsg+lfc=epl says:

    none i hope , doyle if i was hard pushed to choose , kinda hoping we sign daniel sturridge , excellent first choice striker let alone backup , if we were chasing the game we could take off midfielder or defender play all 3 up front , thats my opinion ps keep aquaman sell poulsen cole ngog , we almost got a squad capable of challenging and not just this season , for few years me thinks

  15. Manish says:

    I think we should sell caroll and suarez and put caragger in the front line alongside kuyt .just do it!

  16. GODWINEO says:

    I agre wit you Ajayi and fsg+. Osaze could have what we want and Sturige is a better option, but hw abt Lisandro of lyon, Tevez of city they could stil fit in.

  17. Speed says:

    D 2 players in question r gud, y not scout 4 fresh and untaped talent like Me. I ll impress.

  18. BG says:

    What about Joe Cole?
    I think Rodallega is much better striker than Doyle or Sutridge.
    Although don’t need another striker but with an addition of Rodallega it can be vaulable…

  19. Siya says:

    Osaze Odemwingie

  20. rufai razaq says:

    l as a person, l preffered non of them. My suggeston was dt why we dont go 4 tevez since he has no gud time with d man-city,he is a quality player no doubt n dt, insted we keep focusing on below average player, non of ds 2 players is even champion league materials cause we need 2 have faith dt we were already qualify 4 dt, we need gud&mature players 2 qualify aswell 2 play during champion league.

  21. siam says:

    kenny himself can b da 3rd striker we need…i’m sure if he break his retirement nd play 4 us again he’ll b da golden boot winner instead of suarez…tensed abt fitness??its our KK,man….still da fittest guy in da squad..

  22. Waterson says:


  23. Kopstar says:

    Carrol and Henderson waste of money total rubbish played better when carrol was of the pitch do the swap with Chelsea for sturridge and keep aquiline

  24. Dominic says:

    Carroll waste of money

  25. Y N W A says:

    Keep Meireles… sell Aquilani £9m, Kuyt £12m, Ngog £4m and Cole £3m.

    Buy Cahill £12m, lennon £9m and Forlan £6m

  26. The. King says:

    Wot job do u lot do? Not prem manager 4 sure…. KK bought a Geordie last time and won the league…. Know ur history puppies, in KK we TRUST… Stick 2 ya day job pups

  27. RoGue says:

    Neither. We should go for Silva Neymar instead. Though the chances of him signing for Liverpool are very slim cause we can’t offer the lad Champs League football. And if he should come, I’d say he should be first instead of Carroll. Young, fast, tactical and maybe inexperienced but given time, I’m sure he will do good for Liverpool.

  28. RoGue says:

    And to add to that, we wont have to build the team around him. Though I do admit that Downing and Enrique were good buys.

  29. neil says:

    keep aqua (hopefully we need him now meireles looks fucked) + get coates = top 4.
