David Villa: 5 Reasons He Would Be the Perfect January Signing for Liverpool

The January transfer window is still some way away, but Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers and his scouting team will be hard at work drawing up a list of potential targets for the Reds.

As always with a club like Liverpool, media speculation has been rife in regards to who the club might sign once the transfer market opens. Many players who have been linked over the years have once again had their names connected with the club.

It is clear that Liverpool will need to add players to their squad in January, especially in attack. A disappointing end to the summer transfer window saw Rodgers left short in terms of attacking talent and the Reds have struggled to score goals this season.

But this is not a new issue for the Reds.

Liverpool dominated many games last season but lacked a penalty-box predator to convert the chances they created. The burden fell on Luis Suarez who, despite being a capable goalscorer, is not a natural finisher.

This season, the Reds have once again had to rely on Suarez to be their main source of goal. And while he has scored five league goals already, he cannot be expected to score 30 each season while also being the team's main creative force.

Quite simply, Liverpool need to add goals to their lineup in January and they possibly need to bring in two players who can score them.

In the last week on Bleacher Report Jake Ware makes a compelling case for the signing of Celtic's Gary Hooper and Nick Goss has given his thoughts on a potential move for Darren Bent of Aston Villa. Personally I would prefer Hooper to Bent every time.

In an ideal world, though, I'd like to see Liverpool aim a little higher.

I'd like to see them sign a player who has been linked to Liverpool frequently over the last six or seven years since Rafa Benitez initially tried to bring him to the club.

I would like to see them to bring David Villa to Anfield on loan. Here are five reasons why this move would make sense for all parties involved.
