Liverpool transfer news: Another striker deal possible this summer

Reds to continue shake-up of attacking options.

Liverpool could be set to strike another deal up front this summer, with the Reds possibly set to sell veteran forward Rickie Lambert to West Bromwich Albion, according to the Birmingham Mail.

Lambert only joined the Merseyside giants last summer after impressing at Southampton, but he has failed to reproduce that form at Anfield, scoring only three goals in all competitions in 2014/15.

The 33-year-old was not a regular in Brendan Rodgers’ side, even with a crisis of options up top due to the departure of Luis Suarez and injuries to Daniel Sturridge, and his chances are surely set to be even more limited now due to the arrival of so many new strikers.

Liverpool have already brought in Danny Ings from Burnley, while Divock Origi has returned to the first-team squad after spending last season on loan at Ligue 1 side Lille, and reports from talkSPORT suggest that a move to bring in Christian Benteke from Aston Villa is edging closer as the Belgian is set for a medical with the club on Monday.

Lambert’s fine form at Southampton has shown that he could be an asset to many Premier League clubs, though the Birmingham Mail claim he is not necessarily a priority target for West Brom at the moment.

The Baggies already have the excellent Saido Berahino up front, though they could still pounce for Lambert if he is made available this summer.
