Liverpool Target German International Forward as Brendan Rodgers Looks to Add to Anfield Firepower

Anfield side set sights on Bayer Leverkusen striker.

German source are today reporting that Liverpool are keen on German international forward Stefan Kiessling.

The Anfield side could well do with attacking reinforcements given that a broken foot injury has ruled out Fabio Borini and left Liverpool with just one recognised senior striker, Luis Suarez, and as such Brendan Rodgers will certainly be drawing up a list of potential January targets.

28 year old Stefan Kiessling has the physical attributes to be a success in the English top tier and even though the 6ft 3in forward is accomplished in the air he is solid enough on the deck to suit Rodgers’ style of play, arguably unlike loaned out England man Andy Carroll.

The former FC Nuremberg man has been a consistent force over the past six seasons and netted 17 goals for Bayer Leverkusen last term and has scored a total of 91 goals since his move to the BayArena in the summer of 2006.

It may take a strong offer to persuade Bayer Leverkusen to sell but the fact that Sami Hyypiä’s side failed to secure a Champions League berth may lead the side to have to consider offers for the top talents.

Chelsea have spent many months targeting Andre Schurrle and any successful move for Kiessling could depend on whether the youngster is sold to the West London side.
