With less than 48 hours transfer window would be closed, several strikers have been linked with Liverpool to strengthen his squad for this season EPL competition. Roy Hodgson has identified a number of positions to be established that the attack and defense left. Last season was the most disappointing season for Fernando Torres and Liverpool. Without Torres, Liverpool’s like toothless in front of goal. The absence of players who can replace him in the attack was the cause of the lack of scoring goals at Liverpool last season.
David Ngog failed to stand out after only able to score five goals in the competition last season. Besides Ngog, Liverpool did not have another strikers. Dirk Kuyt has been comfortable playing right wing position although it is not his preferred position. While Ryan Babel is also often played at left wing, and rarely given the opportunity to play. This situation makes Hodgson try to sign stikers to fill the gap if Torres injured or suspended. Four players was rumored will join Liverpool in less than 48 hours.
1. Charlton Cole – The England player has the ability to control the ball well and is often compared with Heskey. His best personal record in a season is only 10 league goals and definitely not good enough to play for Liverpool
2. Bobby Zamora – The Fulham striker was quite outstanding in last season under the guidance of Roy Hodgson scored 19 goals in total in the eight goals in league competition and the rest scored in the League of European competition and the FA Cup. However, Liverpool supporters will want a bigger name to join them.
3. Mario Gomez – Aged 25 years and has an impressive record while playing for VFB Stuttgart when scoring 35 goals in 2008/2009 season and 28 goals the previous season. But he was less prominent after joining Bayern Munich and is said to be sold if there is a reasonable price offered on the table.
4. Fernando Llorente – Athletic Bilbao player is suitable to play as a target man for a height of 1.95 meters. Scored 23 goals in total for last season and as a Spaniard, he may be the best partners for Fernando Torres.
