Some helpful advice for Anfield boss Kenny Dalglish to consider.
Despite just securing the services of long term target Charlie Adam and Sunderland midfielder Jordan Henderson, Liverpool are still in the market for reinforcements.
But with a large squad of high earners, and a real need for more talent, who are the players to sign? And who are the man to move on?
The Serbian Hit-man arrived at Anfield with high levels of expectation and a hefty reputation. Courted by many of Europe’s elite prior to his free transfer from Belgian outfit Standard Liege, Jovanovic’s career never took off with the reds, as he failed to hold down a first team berth both under Roy Hodgeson and Kenny Dalglish. Despite an impressive scoring record with his former club (52 in 116) Jovanovic only found the net twice for the merseysiders, the first during Liverpool’s Carling Cup defeat to lowly Northampton Town, and the second in the Europa league against Steaua Bucharest. Although Jovanovic has the ability to fill in multiple positions, his rumoured £120,000-per-week wages mean that a possible role as a squad player is highly unlikely, with Fenway Sports Group looking to trim the high wage bill at the club.
A move to Greek giants Olympiakos has been much mooted, but with the long-term stability of football in Greece under question, it would be no surprise to see Jovanovic return to Belgium, most likely with Anderlecht, who have also shown interest in the 30-year-old.
