The Liverpool Echo has suggested Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers is planning a complete overhaul of the club’s attack for next season.
The paper states that doubts over Mario Balotelli could see the Italian sold this summer, while Fabio Borini and Rickie Lambert have also been tipped for exits before the start of next season.
There was buzz and excitement following the arrival of Balotelli for £16 million from AC Milan, but it’s a deal which doesn’t seem to have worked out over the course of a long season.
The Italian failed to take his chances when injuries to Daniel Sturridge opened up chances for him to perform at the top of the club’s attack.
Similar assessments can be made of both Borini and Lambert, who have equally struggled to get their teeth into life in the side’s attack.
It’s a risk for Rodgers to let all three leave because he’s then giving himself a lot of work to do in the transfer market in terms of drafting in replacements.
However, if he can create a core group of talented forwards pushing each other and performing effectively, Liverpool’s attack should pack more of a punch.
