Liverpool need an elite goal scorer. They need a goal poacher, someone to finish off the chances provided by Luis Suarez and the midfielders. It is without a doubt the biggest hole in the team.
With their 14 goals against them throughout 18 games, Liverpool have had the best defense in the league in the young season. With their 21 goals scored, the attack has been average at best. With Luis Suarez's suspension beckoning, the need for offensive help has become even more dire.
Changes are coming in the Anfield attack. Improvements will be made in January, as manager Kenny Dalglish will add reinforcements. Here are five names that we should all hope the management team at Liverpool are taking long looks at as potential January signings.
