Liverpool have been linked with a January move for Napoli striker Gonzalo Higuain, according to the Daily Mirror.
Reports in Spain suggest the Reds are plotting a £31million January bid for the forward, despite spending more than £100million on new players in the summer.
The Reds boasted one of the most feared attacks in Europe last season, but have struggled for goals since the sale of Luis Suarez and the injury to Daniel Sturridge.
Mario Balotelli has scored just once in his first six games for the club, whilst fellow strikers Rickie Lambert and Fabio Borini are yet to get off the mark this season.
Reports suggest Brendan Rodgers is not entirely convinced by Balotelli, after stating last week there is ‘no comparison’ between the Italian and former striker Suarez.
Higuain may well be the answer to Liverpool’s problems, but Napoli and former Liverpool boss Rafael Benitez is likely to demand a huge fee for his services.
He also has a 100m buyout clause. This 31m made up fee is how much Napoli actually paid for him. They don’t need to sell, nor will they. Plus he’s already denied it will happen.
