There are few strikers in the world that could match the goalscoring ability of the great Luis Suarez. Looking at last term, Suarez was key to our push for a Premier League title, and even though we narrowly missed out, his goals will certainly be missed.
Now, however, we have a massive sum of money which we can use to find his replacement. It may be argued that Rickie Lambert has been signed and that he’s got great ability. But Lambert is quite old and lacks mobility to make the kind of effect that Suarez did.
However, there is one name that we’ve currently been linked with, and he’ll only cost us £28 million. His name is Giuseppe Rossi.
Perhaps you remember him? He used to play for Manchester United, where he was not incredibly successful. But since leaving United, he has become an incredible, prolific goalscoring striker for Villarreal and, more recently, Fiorentina. And, at the age of 27, he still has a few more good years left to play and at the same time, he’s not so young that we will have to wait until he reaches his full potential.
Last season, he was in amazing form and scored 16 goals in Serie A and was amongst the best strikers in the league. Hopefully he can bring that goalscoring prowess to our club and Brendan Rodgers will do everything he can to sign him.
