Former Man Utd Forward Returning to England, Liverpool are Plotting a Move for 25 Goals in 22 Games Striker

In the remaining few days of the January transfer window, Premier League clubs are expected to be some of the busier clubs, as clubs such as Liverpool continue to work hard to find players who will bolster the Anfield outfit squad.

With Daniel Sturridge still sidelined with injury, and Christian Benteke out of favor, Liverpool manager Jürgen Klopp looks to bring in some additional attacking power. Because Klopp understands time is running out with a couple of days to on the transfer window, Liverpool have been heavily linked to some top players such as the most recent target – former United striker Javier Hernandez.

The Reds’, who have managed to score 25 goals in their 22 league games, lack of a good finisher is made more obvious by the fact that they have created the most chances in the league since Jürgen Klopp was hired in October.

According to Don Balon, a Spanish publication, Klopp is now eyeing a move for Bayer Leverkusen striker Hernandez.

Although has Arsenal seems to have much interest in the Mexican, Liverpool are undoubtedly ready to rival Arsenal and other clubs for the forwards signature.

However, a January move for Hernandez will not be possible until summer because the player has featured for both United and Leverkusen.

Hernandez has been in stunning form since moving to the Bundesliga side in a £7.3 million deal in August, scoring 19 goals in 25 games.

Liverpool’s summer signing Christian Benteke is currently struggling to fit in Klopps style of play while doubts remain over Daniel Sturridge’s long-term fitness. And with Divock Origi and Danny Ings still struggling with injuries, Red’s manager Klopp is in the market for a new striker.

Last week, Javier Hernandez added fuel on the speculation about his future in Bundesliga by refusing to declare if he will be at Leverkusen.

We’ll see you never know what happens,” he said.

“I’m glad and happy to be part of this great club. In this sport, it does not matter whether you sign a contract for ten years or ten times prolong by one year. In six months, everything can again be different.”
