With the final international break of the year finally out of the way, attentions turn towards the winter fixtures – and inevitably the January transfer window.
One player seemingly on Liverpool’s radar is Greek forward Kostas Mitroglou.
Brendan Rodgers is keen to add some depth to his attacking options despite the form of Luis Suarez and Daniel Sturridge. To become overly reliant on the two would naive.
Iago Aspas and Victor Moses can play up front but neither are seen as solid re-enforcements.
Therefore, according to a
report in The Mirror, Liverpool have been heavily scouting Olympiacos’ Mitroglou.
So much so that three members of the club’s transfer committee have now all watched him in action; head of recruitment Dave Fallows, chief scout Barry Hunter and head of analysis Michael Edwards.
Mitroglou certainly has goalscoring pedigree, The Mirror write:
He has scored four hat tricks this season – one fewer than Cristiano Ronaldo – and has bagged a stunning 14 goals in 10 league games for his club, as well as six for Greece in his last seven matches.
Arsenal and Inter Milan are also reported to be interested in the 25 year-old who can play centrally or from the left of a front-three.
