Liverpool could well do with alternative attacking options and though a move for Barcelona striker David Villa doesn’t conform to the Anfield club’s push for a more youthful transfer policy the Spanish international is clearly the type of player who is worth trying to bring in.
The 30 year old forward has been out with a lengthy injury and was not in the best of form prior to being sidelined and even though the former Valencia man is not the same player he was in his pomp he could still be a very useful signing who Kenny Dalglish would no doubt consider as a strike partner for Luis Suarez.
Villa notched up 129 goals in 212 games for Valencia before his move to the Nou Camp in the summer of 2010 and though considered as something of a failure at the Catalan club the Spanish national team record goalscorer has still managed a very healthy total of 32 goals from 76 appearances.
With Andy Carroll failing to make an impact and with Dirk Kuyt and Craig Bellamy arguably working better in wide roles a move for Villa would be a wise one to consider though perhaps he would opt for a move to Juventus given there rise to prominence this term.
