The Reds had been linked to the Argentine, and he would have been a great signing for the Anfield club. The forward would have gone a long way to resolving the team’s lack of goals. At the very least he would have been an improvement on summer signings Rickie Lambert and Mario Balotelli in the position, both of whom have struggled since arriving on Merseyside.
