Perhaps save is the wrong word, cause let’s face it, no matter what happens between now and the end of May, this season will no doubt be seen as a failure for Liverpool fans.
Anyway, Rafa Benitez’ search for a striker continues and a new name entered the frame today. Sunderland’s Kenwyne Jones is now understood to be on Liverpool’s radar with several leading newspapers claiming a six-month loan deal may be on the cards.
Jones, 25, was recently valued at £40 million by Sunderland boss Steve Bruce following claims that Stoke City were interested in signing the former Southampton man.
Names like Ruud Van Nistelrooy, Roman Pavlyuchenko, Emile Heskey, Marouane Chamakh have all been linked with moves to Anfield in recent weeks, but for whatever reasons, nothing has materialised on any of those fronts.
Sunderland have today done their best to rule out the possibility of Jones moving to Liverpool, however I have a feeling we haven’t heard the end of this. With all due respect to Sunderland, I would love to see Jones make the move to Merseyside. It would be fascinating to see Jones partner Fernando Torres in a Liverpool front two. I personally think it would work wonders, but whether the move goes ahead, we’ll have to wait and see.
