Anfield side line up move for unhappy Magpies forward.
CalcioMercato believes that Liverpool have set their sights on Newcastle United striker Demba Ba as the Anfield side look to boost their threadbare attack with an ambitious move for the Senegal international.
It goes without saying that Liverpool desperately need to strengthen an attack that currently has just two recognised senior strikers, Luis Suarez and unproven Italian Fabio Borini who is still waiting for his first Premier League goal.
Rodgers sent Andy Carroll packing to West Ham and clearly does not see the big forward as part of his Anfield first team plans but the quick thinking speedy Newcastle United forward Demba Ba would seemingly be a good foil for Uruguayan international Suarez.
Last term Ba netted 16 goals last term, despite spending half of the campaign in a wide attacking role he apparently does not feel best suits his strengths.
The unhappy former Hoffenheim and West Ham man was handed a spot on the Newcastle United bench against Everton and then came on to net twice, a statement of his obvious abilities and then followed that with the winner at home to Norwich City and a brace away at Reading.
