Liverpool are rumoured to be readying a January bid for Partizan Belgrade striker Cleo. Anfield boss Roy Hodgson has been monitoring the progress of the Brazilian and believes the powerfully built 25 year old could act as a good foil for Fernando Torres and would add more variety to an attack that has lacked a spark this season.
Cleo has been a been a big hit since his move to Partizan in the summer of 2009 and this season he has been a veritable goal machine netting 20 goals from 27 starts including an impressive 10 goals in Champions League action that have brought him to the attention of many interested clubs across Europe.
The former Red Star player would suit the physicality of the Premier League and Hodgson is believed to be keen on bringing in a target man and the added bonus with Cleo is that as well as being a powerfully built front man he also has a good touch.
Clearly the jump from the Serbian league to the English top tier would be a big one but the impressive run outs Cleo has completed in European football would suggest that he has the potential to make that step up. He is thought to be valued at around £8m a fee that Liverpool should more than easily fund with the help of the club’s new owners.
