There will definitely be a shake-up amongst the strikers at Anfield before next season starts, we know that for sure. The lack of impact that Mario Balotelli, Rickie Lambert, and Fabio Borini have had, as well as the injury problems of Daniel Sturridge, have left Liverpool in dire need of new blood at the position.
A deal for Danny Ings looks to be all but wrapped up, but now Brendan Rodgers is believed to be pursuing a Manchester City striker who has fallen out of favour at the Etihad.
The Mirror are claiming that Liverpool are set to offer Manchester City a fee in the region of £12m for striker Stevan Jovetic.
Jovetic arrived at Man City two years ago after establishing himself as one of Europe's brightest talents at Fiorentina, but it hasn't quite worked for him as he has struggled to secure playing time ahead of Sergio Aguero and Edin Dzeko. The addition of Wilfried Bony in the January transfer window pushed Jovetic further down the pecking order, and it is believed that the Montenegro international will be allowed to leave the club this summer.
Rodgers is said to be a long term admirer of Jovetic, who has shown flashes of his ability in patches of playing time earlier in this campaign as well as towards the end of last season when City won their second Premier League title. Liverpool may face competition from Italian clubs such as Inter Milan, so it would be in their interest to attempt to agree a deal sooner rather than later.
