It's no secret: Liverpool need a forward in the January transfer market to aid Luis Suarez in winning Premier League points for the Reds.
As ever, the global media have scoured for talent both near and far from Anfield in the hope of coming up with the name of the player—or players—Brendan Rodgers chooses to join his ranks and help his side up the league table.
Rumours of whom Liverpool were going to sign hit a new record this year as "targets" popped up within hours of the summer window closing, with out-of-contract players such as Michael Owen and Eidur Gudjohnsen named.
