Anfield boss keen on Liberty Stadium star.
Liverpool are considering a January move to sign Swansea City attacker Scott Sinclair after a succession of glowing scouting reports left Anfield boss Kenny Dalglish readying a potential bid for the former Chelsea man.
Dalglish has been monitoring a number of prospective attacking additions as the Scot looks to beef up Liverpool’s fire-power after seeing his Merseyside club struggle to find the back of the net. That need to bring in another forward has been accentuated by Luis Suarez being handed a lengthy ban and Andy Carroll’s continued inability to find his feet almost a year since his £35m move from Newcastle United.
Scott Sinclair spent five years trying to make the grade at Chelsea, being sent out on loan moves to no fewer than six sides before the Bath born adaptable forward opted to make a £500k move to South Wales and hasn’t looked back since. The 22 year old knocked in 27 goals in his first season to help Brendan Rodgers’ into the top flight via the play-offs.
The former England Under 21 international has continued to impress in the top flight notching up six goals from a wide role out on the left, offering support to summer signing Danny Graham and pushing Swansea City into the top half of the table.
Liverpool spent over £100m on new players in 2011 and Dalglish and director of football Damien Comolli have been committed to purchasing youthful players in order to build for the future and Sinclair certainly fits the bill in that respect and the top four chasers may feel they can tempt the Swansea City man to consider a move, especially as he has less than 18 months left to run on his current contract.
The fact that Sinclair can play out wide will also interest Dalglish who will feel that the adaptable Swansea City man can add an extra direct dimension to an attack that has struggled to break down opposition sides, managing just 24 goals in 21 Premier League matches.
