Liverpool have struggled to replace the goals of Luis Suarez since his switch to Barcelona this past summer. And with Daniel Sturridge spending most of the season injured, the Merseyside club are badly in need of reinforcements.
Mario Balotelli was brought in for £16m, with Rickie Lambert and Fabio Borini also at the club. The trio have failed to impress this season however, leading Rodgers to use Raheem Sterling as a false nine.
The Northern Irish manager believes 21-year-old Alcacer could be the solution to his problems, with the Spaniard hugely impressing in La Liga over the past year or two.
He is in the middle of contract negotiations with his current club, but it seems as though things have turned sour. His current deal allegedly expires in the summer of 2016, and Rodgers is hoping Valencia will be willing to sell him now rather than risk losing him for a pittance in a year’s time.
AC Milan are also reportedly interested, but Liverpool may prove a more enticing prospect for the youngster.
