Liverpool Plan Bids for Chelsea & Swansea City Attackers: Brendan Rodgers Wants Team GB Pair

Anfield boss keen on Stamford Bridge and Liberty Stadium youngsters.

Anfield manager Brendan Rodgers is ready to make a significant offer for Chelsea attacker Daniel Sturridge as he looks to improve Liverpool’s strike-force. The former Blues reserve team coach is a big admirer of the England international and has been monitoring the youngster ever since he took over at the Merseyside club.

Though the 22 year old spend time out with meningitis the Blues forward has made a remarkable recovery to star for the Team GB side at the 2012 Olympics, scoring against both Uruguay and the UAE. However Sturridge may have reason to believe he could struggle to retain a spot in the Chelsea starting line-up next term.

Former Chelsea boss Andre Villas-Boas showed great faith in the former Man City man, offering him a steady run in the first team, albeit in Sturridge’s unfavoured wide role. Indeed the Birmingham born youngster excelled on the wing but when Roberto Di Matteo took over his chances became limited and he was left out of both FA and Champions League final triumphs.

Brendan Rodgers is looking to re-shape his Liverpool attack and appears keen to offload £35m flop Andy Carroll and having already brought in Italian international Fabio Borini the Northern Irish manager is now keen on bringing in the Chelsea man and will receive the backing of the club’s American owners to make a weighty bid for Sturridge.

The 39 year old former Swansea City manager is also looking to further his pursuit of and Team GB forward, namely Scott Sinclair. Rodgers hopes to lure the 23 year old attacker, who helped to secure promotion to the top tier when he netted 27 goals to take his Welsh side to the Premier League.

The Bath born youngster was then used primarily as a winger last term and Rodgers is keen to reunite with his former charge. Sinclair is currently in talks with Swansea City over a new deal so could be tempted by a move to Liverpool if his demands are not met.

Brendan Rodgers is looking to freshen up an attack that struggled both to create chances or register a significant goal tally.

Liverpool have had to over-rely on Luis Suarez and Rodgers is keen to bring in new options and will use funds provided by the club’s owners coupled with revenue accrued from the departures of Dirk Kuyt, Maxi Rodriguez and Alberto Aquilani as well as any funds from the potential sale of Carroll to help cover the cost of further addition
