Liverpool’s current campaign has already been blighted by injuries. They have Danny Ings, Joe Gomez and Sakho injured at the moment alongside a rather fragile Daniel Sturridge. In light of the mentioned injuries, it comes as a surprise that reports in Italy claim that the Merseyside club are keen on bringing Fiorentina and former Manchester United striker Giuseppe Rossi to Anfield.
If the news does not already ring the wrong bells in your head, the value of the deal as reported by ItaSportPress is going to be a whopping £18 million for a player who missed the entire last season with a cruciate ligament injury and has failed to score for his side so far this season. Rossi’s agent Pastorello believes that consistent first team football will do the striker a world of good.
“He’s like a dog chasing his tail,” he said. “To be a top player he has to get back to full fitness, but to do that he needs to play consistently. “It’s a thought, nothing more. It’s absolutely not a problem or a controversy, but there’s no doubt that if he doesn’t play it’ll be difficult for him to get back to being the top player he is.”
We believe this rumour is a rather too outlandish for Klopp. He could easily put the mentioned money to more efficient use looking for alternative options across Europe.
