Anfield side keen on three top quality attackers.
Portuguese source Record are today reporting that newly appointed Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers has drawn up a list of attacking talent that he wishes to scout ahead of possible bids.
The first target addressed by this source is James Rodriguez, who has begun to receive a great deal of attention of late, attention that the player’s agent has done nothing to quell, which must make FC Porto very angry. The 20 year old Colombian international made a real splash last term, netting 12 goals in 22 league games as his side overcame a resilient Benfica side to clinch the Portuguese title.
Brendan Rodgers may well feel the need to improve on the players he currently has in his armoury in regards to wide players. Though both Jordan Henderson and Stewart Downing made it into Roy Hodgson’s England Euro 2012 squad, neither impressed last term and Rodriguez offers a very real improvement and can play on either wing.
The speedy winger won’t come cheap though and Man United are also in the running to snap up the South American and a lot could depend on just how much Rodgers is handed to invest in his squad. Given that Kenny Dalglish spent upwards of £120m on new additions and saw Liverpool move further off the top four pace it is possible that the Northern Irishman may have to work off a reduced budget.
