Liverpool put Fernando Llorente as a possible target
Liverpool are continuing their hunt for firepower – with Spain striker Fernando Llorente a possible target.
Kop boss Kenny Dalglish and director of football Damien Comolli continue to monitor several options as Andy Carroll struggles to settle.
They are also keeping tabs on other hitmen including Newcastle’s Demba Ba and Aston Villa’s Darren Bent, but 26-year-old Llorente who would cost at least £20m, is also on their radar after some fine displays for Athletico Bilbao and Spain.
Liverpool keeper Pepe Reina and Maxi Rodriguez have also praised Llorente’s performances in La Liga this term to Liverpool’s hierarchy.
A move for Serbian wonderkid Lazar Markovic is looking unlikely after his club Partizan Belgrade slapped a £14m price on his head.
People Sport revealed last week that the 17-year-old was a target – but Dalglish will not fork out that kind of cash.
