The trio are reportedly eyeing a £10million move for the Spaniard in January according to the Sun, with them all needing to add firepower to their squad this season.
Liverpool in particular have continued to struggle in that area, with Daniel Sturridge failing to maintain his fitness, Divock Origi a work in progress and Christian Benteke yet to prove his worth.
A move to the Reds would make little sense though, with Bojan not the out-and-out striker they need, but more a creative player; something the squad is already full of.
Aside from that, taking a look at the stats shows that Benteke has even been better than Bojan in several areas this season, despite his struggles.
|Team||Season||Goals per Game||Big Chance Scored per Game||Total Scoring Attempts per Game||On-target Scoring Attempts per Game||Goal Assist per Game||Total Attempted Assist per Game||On-target Attempted Assist per Game||Appearances|
As the table from Opta shows, Benteke currently has a better goal per game ratio, as well as registering more scoring attempts per game and more on target scoring attempts.
Creatively he has also been a bigger influence, with more attempted assists per game and more on-target attempted assists per game as well.
In fact, the only area the two are level is when it comes to assists per game, with both yet to register in that regard.
And the only area where the Stoke man has bettered his Liverpool counterpart is when it comes to taking big chances, with his tally being 0.1 per game and Benteke’s at 0.
So, Liverpool’s potential move for Bojan would be an odd one to say the least given the domination by Benteke in these stats.
With the Belgian struggling, and likely to struggle to adapt to Jurgen Klopp’s system, that is likely to sway the German’s thinking going forward, making a move for a new forward a distinct possibility.
