We all know that Liverpool are in need of a striker this summer. Luis Suarez’s departure at the end of last season is something they’re still yet to recover from, while the flop trio of Mario Balotelli, Fabio Borini and Rickie Lambert are all set to be ditched (via the Daily Mirror).
The Reds are staring at the prospect of starting the 2015-16 season with just two out-and-out forwards – an injury-plagued Daniel Sturridge and an unproven Divock Origi, who has struggled to make much in the way of an impact at Lille so far this season.
What’s come as a surprise thus far is the names that Brendan Rodgers and co are being linked with, the likes of Manchester United flop Radamel Falcao and Paris Saint Germain stalwart Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who could both be open to summer moves according to reports in The Metro.
Would either of these players be a success at Anfield? We decide below, as we rate both them and three other veteran strikers who could still shine an Anfield…
5) Klaas-Jan Huntelaar (Schalke)
Enjoyed a brilliant record in Dutch football and has also been highly productive in Germany. However, he’s always been a big fish in a small pond. Spells at Real Madrid and AC Milan both ended in disappointment and it wouldn’t come as a surprise if the 31-year-old fancied one last crack at the big time. His 103 goals in 168 games for Schalke shouldn’t be sniffed at, neither should his chances of Premier League success.
