The Daily Mirror has today reported that Liverpool manager Rafa Benitez is preparing a January move for Tottenham striker Roman Pavlyuchenko.
The Russian international admitted yesterday that he was desperate to leave White Hart Lane due to the lack of first team football of late and if you believe what you read in the papers, a loan move to Merseyside could well be on the cards.
As we all know, Liverpool are short of strikers (well, good ones anyway) and money so it would make sense to look for a loan signing, however I’m not sure Pavlyuchenko is really Liverpool material.
The 27-year old has proved during his time at Spurs that he is not a 20 goal a season man and to bring in another, to put it bluntly, shite striker would be a waste of time.
Having said that, things can’t really get any worse for Rafa Benitez, so bringing in a new face may save their season, who knows.
