Liverpool are ready to make a move for Atletico Madrid striker Mario Mandzukic, according to the Telegraph.
Reds boss Brendan Rodgers is preparing for next season, with his side having failed to qualify for next season’s Champions League, not least due to his misfiring strikers.
Daniel Sturridge, Mario Balotelli, Rickie Lambert and Fabio Borini have just eight league goals between them so far this season, a tally matched by top scorer and outgoing captain Steven Gerrard.
Atletico look set to rival Liverpool in the race to sign Aston Villa’s Christian Benteke, and should the La Liga side be successful, it could pave the way for Mandzukic to move on.
The Croatia international only moved to the Vicente Calderon last summer, but has impressed with twenty goals in forty-two games in all competitions.
Liverpool end their season with a trip to Stoke City, and can be backed at 23/20 to take all three points.
