Liverpool to have £60m new front-line

Memphis Depay, Christian Benteke and Danny Ings all wanted

Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers is preparing a Summer triple-deal worth around £60million in order to add new power to his attacking-line.

The Reds have failed to live up to expectations this season after finishing second last year and that is mainly due to a loss of serious goal-threat.

Losing Star-Men

Liverpool sold Luis Suarez to FC Barcelona and replaced him with Rickie Lambert and Mario Balotelli from Southampton and AC Milan respectively.

As well as losing Suarez, Liverpool have been without Daniel Sturridge for large proportions of the season due to injuries and the loss of their key-men as proven critical.

A 0-0 draw with West Brom over the weekend all-but confirmed that Rodgers’ men won’t be in the Champions League next season and he is already planning his Summer transfer business.

Rodgers wants to add a new-look to Liverpool’s front-line, which is expected to see Lambert, Balotelli and Fabio Borini all leave the club.

Possible Summer Signings

The Merseyside outfit want to bring in Memphis Depay from PSV, Christian Benteke from Aston Villa and Danny Ings from Burnley.

According to reports, Depay is likely to cost around £25million, Benteke could cost around £30m and Ings would be signed on a free transfer due to his contract expiring, but because of his age, a compensation fee would have to be paid. That fee is thought to be around £3-5m.

Rodgers Admits Failures

Speaking over the weekend, Rodgers highlighted the need for a new-look attacking force next season.

He said: “It’s clear to see that we need a goal threat for next season, so there is going to be a whole raft of players that I am sure will be looked at.

“Then, it will be up to the club if they are affordable and we will also have to see if they are available.”
