Liverpool sold Mario Balotelli and Christian Benteke last summer. Moreover, at the moment, the likes of Danny Ings and Daniel Sturridge are out injured leaving Divock Origi as the only fit first team center forward.
In such a scenario, the Reds need to sign a striker and former Man United star Javier Hernandez has been in the limelight.
Last month, we covered a report (via Mirror) claiming that the Merseysiders are looking to sign Chicharito who has a release clause of 33.5million pounds in his contract ($41million).
Now, as per the latest reports going on in the media, the Reds have a chance of signing the Mexican striker for a cut price.
According to German source SportBild, the 28-year-old striker is not a first team player anymore and will be sold immediately if a club is willing to offer a fee of 25 million euros ($26million).
Hernandez is a top goalscorer and more importantly he has proven his quality in the Premier League. Last season, he was in brilliant form for Bayer Leverkusen. In 43 appearances, he scored 26 goals and also provided 6 assists.
However, this time around, he has only scored 7 goals and provided 2 assists in 23 games for the Bundesliga side.
In your opinion, should Liverpool splash $26m to sign Javier Hernandez?
