See below details about a potential move for Inter Milan striker to Tottenham and then consider whether he wouldn’t be more attracted to a move to Anfield instead.
Tottenham could sign Brazilian striker Adriano for free in the January transfer window, the 27 year-old, who is in the middle of a one-year contract with Brazilian club Flamengo, is keen for a return to Europe.
Adriano is said to have a clause in his contract which will allow him to leave for nothing in January if a European club come in for him.

That is sure to alert Spurs manager Harry Redknapp, who first signalled his interest in the former Inter Milan player last summer.

So there you have it, I know Liverpool are not mentioned in the article, it is merely my contention that if this news is indeed correct, and the Telegraph isn’t The Scum after, then we should be looking at Adriano as a potential January addition.
The 27 year old Brazilian has indeed seen better days but he is hardly over the hill and on his day he is a feared predator. He has a point to prove and we could do with another attacking option in our armoury and also, he wouldn’t cost a penny!
This is a player who has been there and done it. He has experience and the kind of physique that could deal with the rough and tumble of the Premier League. What would Rafa have to lose in considering such a deal?
In theory he could work well alongside El Nino, his attributes would work well alongside what Fernando Torres brings to the team, or he could simply as cover.
