Three in, Three Out: Liverpool find buyers for misfiring strike trio

Liverpool have successfully secured a trio of quality attacking talents this summer and will now look to offload three under-performing talents.

Brendan Rodgers has snapped up Burnley’s Danny Ings, Hoffenheim attacking midfielder Roberto Firmino and Aston Villa forward Christian Benteke in what has proven a very busy summer transfer window thus far.

Veteran England man Rickie Lambert failed to retain a foothold in the Liverpool starting eleven in his debut season at the club, netting just two Premier League goals, and is now said to be a player newly appointed Leicester City boss Claudio Ranieri is after (via the Daily Mirror).

Rodgers took something of a risk signing Mario Balotelli and the Italian looks likely to leave Liverpool after just one season at the club with a move to Sampdoria being discussed (via Goal.com).

The chances of Liverpool recouping a significant portion of the £16m they paid for the former Man City man seem slim.

Aston Villa are reportedly keen on forward Fabio Borini (via the Daily Express) and the Italian may well benefit from a fresh challenge as he is unlikely to feature in Rodgers’ plans in 2015/16.
