SHOULD WE SIGN ANELKA & CAN KUYT REPLACE LUCAS?

Friends Of Liverpool

Rumours abound that Liverpool may be looking to sign Nicolas Anelka in the January Transfer-Window, either on loan, or to buy him for around £4 million.

The former Liverpool striker, under Gerrard Houllier, is out of favour and soon out of a contract at Chelsea.

Since the arrival of Villas Boas and the purchase of fallen-Red, Fernando Torres, Anelka has found himself way down the pecking order, behind young Daniel Sturridge who is beginning to find the net quite frequently.

It might be a good bit of business if Liverpool did get him in January as we are very short on goals scored so far this Season.

The possibility of trying Dirk Kuyt in central midfield might seem a bit of a strange idea, seeing as how he is usually deployed wide on the right or upfront with Suarez.

It is Kuyt’s defensive qualities that stand out, he never gives an opponent a second, he hassles and harries players all around the pitch and might just be worth a punt for the Fulham game on Monday night.

I fully expect either Jay Spearing or Jordan Henderson to replace Lucas in midfield for now.

Expect movement by Liverpool in the January window to improve the team and push on for the Champion’s League spot this season.
