Report: Liverpool lead the pursuit of 20-goal Argentine striker

Written by

Reports from Tutto mercato web suggest Juventus striker Carlos Tevez could be on his way to Liverpool.

The former Manchester United and City star has been linked with a move away from the Champions League runners-up in recent months and reports suggest the Reds are in pole position for his signature.

Previously Tevez has spoken of a desire to return to South America to see out his playing days but, after a tremendous season in Italy in which he scored 20 league goals in 32 appearances, he still appears to have plenty left to offer at the highest level.

With a playing style similar to that of Luis Suarez, the Argentine could be the perfect solution to Liverpool’s well-documented attacking problems. After all, his previous time in the Premier League is enough of an indication that he will be a huge success.

The Reds are on the verge of completing a deal for Danny Ings, but the general consensus suggests that he will suffice as little more than a back-up. Securing the signature of Carlos Tevez would be a major coup, and the first step of a long road to Anfield redemption for Brendan Rodgers.
