Liverpool are still desperate to add two more signings to their new-look squad this summer, with manager Brendan Rodgers prepared to go down to the wire in his search for a striker.
The Reds are expected to tie up a deal for Sevilla left-back Alberto Moreno in the coming days, with the two clubs having already agreed a fee, and the Daily Mail believes that Rodgers will then expand his search for a ninth, and final signing.
“We just want to complete on Moreno so we have covered both full back positions and if we can get a striker on top of that, it will be it,’ said Rodgers. ‘It’s not easy, but we have to keep looking.
“We certainly need something that is going to help us over the coming season. You never know sometimes, anything can happen with a few weeks to go in the window.”
Rodgers added that he was prepared to wait until the final minutes of the window, as he scours Europe for the highest calibre of striking talent – seeking a replacement for last season’s top scorer Luis Suarez, who has left for Barcelona in a £75m deal.
Having missed out on Loic Remy due to complications with the player’s medical, names such as Samuel Eto’o, Radamel Falcao, Edinson Cavani and Giuseppe Rossi have been linked with the club, but so far very little progress has been made.
The Anfield club have already signed Southampton trio Rickie Lambert, Adam Lallana and Dejan Lovren this summer, as well as Bayer Leverkusen midfielder Emre Can, Benfica winger Lazar Markovic, Atletico Madrid full-back Javier Manquillo and Lille striker Divock Origi – who returns to his former club on loan – as Rodgers prepares his squad for a return to Champions League football.
