There does not seem to be any stopping the press from speculating on players coming to Liverpool even though the transfer window is closed. Liverpool bought in Craig Bellamy just before the window closed as we needed another striker in our squad following the departure of David Ngog. Now Bellamy is not your out and out striker as we have seen so far this season he has been deployed out on the flanks by Dalglish.

With Carroll and Suarez as the two main strikers in the squad, with Dirk Kuyt also capable of filling in that role it is still suggested that Liverpool still need to sign another striker.

Reports are suggesting that young Dutch starlet Luuk de Jong has been scouted by Liverpool and we may be ready to make a bid for £10million for the FC Twente striker either in January or in the summer.

De Jong has been playing very well in the Dutch league so far this season having scored 7 goals in 8 games resulting in him being called up to the Dutch national team. Hopefully if Liverpool do sign him he will come and be a striker who scores goals in the Premier League unlike Dirk Kuyt who did not live up to his goal scoring exploits in Holland when he joined Liverpool.
