It would be quite the coup for Liverpool if they were to sign Giuseppe Rossi.
According to the Metro, the Reds are weighing up a deal for the Villarreal forward which would bring them a quality player at a small fee.
The Italy international has not featured for his club since the beginning of the 2011-12 season and would still be out with injury if he were to join the club in January.
While a move for Rossi may not really help the club for this season considering his injury problems, Rossi could still play a few games when he returns.
The signing would help prepare the club for next season and should be strongly considered if Rossi can be signed for a fee that is smaller than what he would usually command.
Rossi has been a productive player for Villarreal in front of goal and is capable of playing a variety of positions.
