Signing a new striker in the January transfer window may not be seen as a priority for Liverpool with Daniel Sturridge and Luis Suarez firing in the goals at will right now. But there will come a time when one of them, or maybe even both, are out of form, suspended or tired; then what for the Reds?
The current options are Iago Aspas who has failed to impress since arriving from Celta Vigo in the summer and Victor Moses who is really not an out-an-out striker. If Liverpool are to build a squad capable of challenging for a top four finish and maybe even winning the league then bolstering our strikeforce is a must.
Liverpool have been linked with one of Europe’s hottest strikers right now, Olympiakos’ Konstantinos Mitroglou. The 25-year old Greek international has scored four hat-tricks already this season and has been the subject of much transfer speculation. If Liverpool are seriously considering buying Mitroglou, then they will welcome the news from Olympiakos manager, Jose Miguel Michel, who confessed that the club may have to sell the striker.
“We’ve known for some time that there has been interest from many clubs.” Michel is quoted by The Express.
“But that’s only logical considering how well he has been doing lately.
“There have been no concrete proposals so far, but if he keeps on doing well, it’s going to be hard to keep him.”
It is been suggested that Mitroglou is valued at around £7million which could be a snip for a player of his quality. Liverpool have done well in the past with January transfer signings, having captured Suarez, Sturridge and Coutinho in this window. Adding Mitroglou may be another great signing for the Reds.
