20 year old striker Nathan Eccleton is a youngster with a bright future and one can see why David Moyes might target a move for his services, not least because the arrivals of young strikers Luis Suarez and Andy Carroll last month presumably could restrict any chances the Manchester born front man has of breaking into the Anfield first team picture.

Currently on loan at Charlton the former Bury youth team player arrived at Liverpool in 2006 and progressed through the various levels of youth and reserve sides before getting some first team playing time during the Rafa Benitez reign and got his first start in the Europa League match against Utrecht last December.

Everton have had issues for some years with finding a prolific marksman. David Moyes has seen Louis Saha come back to full fitness and then sidelined again as the Frenchman continues to be troubled by various knocks.

For a time it seemed that Yakubu may be the club’s saviour but he became less effective and even seemingly downright lazy before being shipped off to Leicester City, where he has frustratingly for Everton fans, started scoring regularly again. Youngsters Jose Baxter and Victor Anichebe promise much but are yet to deliver on the high expectations and Jermaine Beckford seems to work better in cameo sub roles than he does as a starter.

Liverpool have a number of attacking options aside from their new signings, with the likes of Dirk Kuyt, Milan Jovanovic and David N’Gog and young options in the form of Daniel Pacheco, Suso and Nikola Sari? to name just three. A lot would depend on how the player himself feels his chances of forging a career at the Merseyside club and perhaps then he would consider other options even if those options included moving across Stanley Park.
