As Liverpool’s seasons problems in the term just gone were clearly in not scoring enough goals, a ready-made solution may lay in the shape of Huddersfield Town hot-shot, Jordan Rhodes.
The 22 year old is scoring goals for fun with 60 in 105 games for Huddersfield in the last two seasons.
Indeed, the lad scored his fortieth goal of this Campaign against the MK Dons in last night’s play-off semi-final against MK Dons to go through 3-2 on agregate 3-2 to the League One final against Sheffield Utd.
Rhodes’former manager Lee Clarke said: “The goals have always been there but his general play is now of an international class player. He’s definitely going nowhere.
I hope the director’s box and the stands are full of scouts because rest assured, no matter how much money is offered he will not be going anywhere.”
Current Huddersfield Manager Simon Grayson might have no option but to sell his star striker though.
That will not deter the likes of Liverpool, Man Utd, Arsenal or Man City from poaching him from the League One side.
It is Liverpool, in particular, who would benefit most by gaining a natural goalscorer as we were badly lacking such a player last season.
Aged just 22 and likely to cost around £2 million or so, the lad is well worth every penny, I would even go so far as to say we should break the bank to sign him as a consistant goal-scorer is what Liverpool are crying out for.
Lets hope Kenny snaps him up asap.
