Tough decision to make.
LIVERPOOL‘S Andriy Voronin finally looks set for a £3million move to Hertha Berlin.
The Ukraine striker spent last season on loan with the German side in the Bundesliga but a permanent move broke down over his hefty personal terms and he is now back at Anfield.
However, Hertha contacted Liverpool last week to reopen talks and indicated they are prepared to make a new £3m bid.

I think at the close of last season we would have all welcomed cashing on on Ukrainian striker Andriy Voronin, but a return to form in Pre-season and a lack of attacking options could well negate a need to keep the 30 year old rather than selling him to the Bundesliga club he performed to so well for last term.
We are very thin on options in the forwards department and as well all know injury to Fernando Torres can very well ruin our season such is our over dependence on the Spanish star. With David N’Gog and Dirk Kuyt available to either partner or replace El Nino it may be that the up and coming Krisztián Nemeth may on occasion be thrown in at the deep end and in general that may not be such a bad thing but clearly Rafa needs to strengthen in this department and is running out of time to do so, as a result offloading Voronin may have to hold off until January.
Alternatively Ryan Babel being played as an out and striker if the need arises, may not be such a bad alternative. The Dutchman needs to perform this season or more than likely he’ll be sold. The speed merchant has the ability and just needs to get into a good run of form to really set the Premier League on fire.
