Some news and rumours surrounding Liverpool Football Club this Tuesday evening
In his column for the Liverpool Echo, Aldridge has said highlighted the Everton forward – who is on loan from Chelsea - as the big danger man to Liverpool’s chances of a positive result.
He said: ‘To me, the key for Liverpool is finding a way to stop Romelu Lukaku. He’s the main threat they carry, and if you nullify him, I think you nullify Everton. Lukaku terrified Liverpool twice last season, whilst playing for West Brom. Martin Skrtel and Daniel Agger will be well aware of the big Belgian’s abilities.’
Aldridge also said he would prefer to see Jose Enrique ahead of Aly Cissokho in the left-back role.
The 20-year-old – who played for Nigeria in their 2-2 draw with Italy at Craven Cottage last night – said: ‘I would jump at the chance to play in the Premier League.
‘Liverpool? They are a huge team and are attractive to any footballer. I could see myself playing for them.’
Lazio are reported to want £6m for the player.
The 25-year-old has scored 17 goals in 14 games and is believed to valued at around £7m.
