Sky Sports News have today confirmed that Liverpool are in ongoing discussions with three strikers who are currently representing their countries at Copa America.
We already knew about contact with Hoffenheim's Brazilian star Roberto Firmino, who is also reported to be a target for Manchester United, but reports which originated in Brazilian publication Globoesporte suggesting an £18m deal had been agreed were premature.
Firmino's versatility in attacking positions could be a big help to Brendan Rogders, but the club are also in talks with two out and out strikers, despite already confirming the aquisition of Danny Ings.
Carlos Bacca, who scored twice in Sevilla's 3-2 Europa League final victory over Dnipro, has held talks with the Anfield club, and everyone's favourite Spanish football correspondent Guillem Balague reckons the Colombian would fancy a move to the Premier League.
He likes the idea of coming to the Premier League, of course he has been abroad for a few years and would be happy to continue that progression abroad.
Last but not least, Venezuelan striker Salomon Rondon has also entered discussions over a move to Liverpool, after catching the eye with 20 league goals for Zenit St.Petersburg on their way to a Russian title win.
It remains to be seen how many, if any, of these players Liverpool can manage to bring in, but is certainly encouraging for fans of the club that Brendan Rodgers is clearly determined to fix the major problem that was Liverpool's strikeforce last season.
