Liverpool installed as favourites to sign 60 cap hit man in Jan
We could definitely see this one happening. Most managers tell us that the winter window is notoriously hard to do big business in. Players are uncertain about moving mid-season and clubs don’t want to sell their stars until the trophies have been dished out.
So the big money transfers are few and far between. But Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers has proved to be a master of the mid-priced market during his time at the club. Players like Countinho and Sturridge weren’t exactly cheap but they were affordable and, crucially, gettable.
With a genuine chance of winning the title this season Liverpool be desperate to strengthen in the winter window and will probably be looking in the same sort of marketplace again. One player who has great experience of The Premier League and could definitely add quality to the Liverpool squad is Lille striker Saloman Kalou.
After 6 years of success at Chelsea he left the club in 2012 and has scored a goal every two games in his time at Lille. He’s been playing out of his skin and rumours have started to surface about him returning to The Premier League.
Yesterday The Liverpool Echo said:
Liverpool transfer speculation today sees Reds boss Brendan Rodgers chasing ex-Chelsea striker Salomon Kalou and MK Dons starlet Dele Alli.
Kalou, 28, is at Lille but has already had interest from Liverpool and Tottenham while Arsenal have been sounded out.
At 28 Kalou is still in his pomp and while he never took centre stage at Chelsea (36 goals in 156 games) he was an excellent member of a brilliant squad. He is a real athlete with pace and great mobility and he can play anywhere across the front line.
Let’s see Kalou in action. CLICK FOR KALOU
