Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers could be tempted to move for Villarreal striker Giuseppe Rossi on a bargain deal, as the 25 year-old is ruled out of action until March due to a knee ligament injury.
Luis Suarez is currently the only recognized striker in Rodgersâ€™ squad after Fabio Borini picked up an ankle injury earlier this season. Liverpool are in dire need of strike options and the Metro claimed that Rodgers is considering making a move for the injured Italian in the hope that his return to action could fire Liverpool higher up the table in the final months of the Premier League.
Rodgers told TalkSPORT, â€œWeâ€™re looking to do business in the striking department in January. Thereâ€™s not going to be wholesale changes in terms of players coming in, thatâ€™s the reality of where the club is at. Weâ€™re looking to grow over the next six months, weâ€™ll get some reinforcements in January and that will support the group who have been magnificent for me so far.â€
Rodgers has ruled out taking Andy Carroll back to Anfield and the Reds boss is looking to add some forwards to his squad with a view to the future. The Italian international has not played for Villarreal for over a year owing to his injury but Rodgers will still face stiff resistance to sign the former Manchester United prodigy as reports in Italy claim that Inter Milan have already reached an agreement with the player's representative for a future move.
A move to Italy would also do Rossi's international prospects some good, and though his game would be well suited to the Premier League, Liverpool are likely to face an uphill task in tempting him with a move back to England.
