Rickie Lambert could be leaving Anfield after just six months at the club.
Liverpool are considering offloading striker Rickie Lambert in the January transfer window after the experienced centre forward’s failure to adapt to life at Anfield since arriving in the Summer, report the Mail, with a trio of Premier League clubs interested in taking the England international off Brendan Rodgers’ hands.
Formerly of the likes of Macclesfield Town and Bristol Rovers, Lambert shot to prominence whilst at Southampton, helping the Saints from League One to the Premier League, eventually earning a move to boyhood club Liverpool in the summer after a fine campaign under Mauricio Pochettino.
Things have not really worked out for the target man at Anfield, however, and he has been starved of both regular starting opportunities and goals in a red shirt, with a limp display against League Two side AFC Wimbledon in the FA Cup this week summing up his poor form for the club.
This has not deterred three Premier League teams from expressing an interest in signing Lambert during the January window, however, with West Bromwich Albion, Crystal Palace and Hull City all mentioned by the report as teams who could be looking to sign Lambert if Brendan Rodgers does decide that he is surplus to requirements.
