Liverpool boss Roy Hodgson is reportedly interested in signing Borussia Dortmund marksman Lucas Barrios. The Anfield manager is desperate to bring in a quality striker to offer support for Fernando Torres and has earmarked a move for the prolific Paraguayan international.
The well built 26 year old has been a remarkable success in the Bundesliga since his move from Colo Colo in the summer of 2009. Barrios has netted 31 goals in 50 matches for Dortmund and has attracted a great deal of interest as his form of late has helped take his side clear at the top of the table.
Roy Hodgson has been told he will receive significant funds to help improve the quality of his squad and the attacking third appears to be the area most in need of boosting. The Dortmund striker is rated at around £14m and his physical presence could help make him a good strike partner for Torres.
Liverpool may have had an upturn in form of late but are still finding goals very hard to come by, managing just 13 goals in 12 Premier League games thus far. Hodgson had attempted to bring in the likes of Roman Pavlyuchenko and Carlton Cole at the end of the last transfer window and now realises he must try his hardest to bring someone in when the transfer window reopens in January.
