Liverpool Transfer Rumours: Reds Interested in Roma Ace ?

Neil HarperCorrespondent IAugust 26, 2011

So far this transfer window Liverpool have been on a bit of a spending spree, and we all thought that left-back Jose Enrique was the final addition to an already strong Liverpool squad. However, the departure of Sotirios Kyrgiakos and the likelihood that David N'Gog is on his way out too has left Liverpool needing more.

The signing of highly rated Uruguayan Seb Coates looks to be completed before Wednesday's deadline day, meaning the hunt for a new centre-back has now ended. But there is still more to come from Liverpool in the window, with the need for a striker.

So far Liverpool seem to have set their sights on one of Man City's many unused players, and former Liverpool player Craig Bellamy. Although I'm sure Bellamy would be a good addition to the squad, another player seems to be on their radar in case the deal falls through.

That player is Marco Borriello, who has been transfer listed by Roma and was offered to Liverpool for £10 million this week. Because Liverpool are still hoping to sign Bellamy, this deal has been put on hold, but with other Premiership clubs to be looking into the rated 29-year-old striker, the sooner Liverpool can seal a deal, the better the outcome may be.

In my opinion, Borrielo is better than Bellamy and is experienced enough to score goals in the Premiership, despite only playing in Serie A for his entire career. We can't forget that Borriello will most likely be backup to Suarez and Carroll, or in squad rotation meaning that he can easily fit into the current setup at Anfield.

We'll have to see which striker Liverpool opt for; however, I think Borriello is a better choice for Liverpool, and we can certainly assume that Liverpool have yet to finish their spending spree with only six days left in the current transfer window.

Feel free to comment with your own opinion on Borriello. Do you think Liverpool should buy Bellamy or Borriello, a completely different striker or stick with the set-up they have at the moment?

Thanks for reading.
