Liverpool are today being linked with a move for Barcelona striker David Villa according to the Metro.

The Spanish striker continues to be on the fringes of the Barcelona side and this may be a clear sign that Pep Guardiola would be ready to sell the striker if the club gets a good enough offer, thought to be in the region of £40million.

Liverpool need more firepower upfront as we saw yesterday (Sunday) against Manchester City that we are creating the chances but we are not finding the back of the net. A goal poacher like Villa would be the perfect foil for Luis Suarez to play upfront with.

But would Liverpool be able to fork out £40million on another striker having signed Andy Carroll for £35million? Coupled with the fact that Villa would be demanding to play Champions League football, it would mean that Liverpool have to finish in the top four this season if we stand any chance of signing the Barcelona star.
