Carlos Tevez

Carlos Tevez

Kicking off this list is the most recent Luis Suarez target to be mooted in the tabloids – Juventus forward Carlos Tevez.

The experienced Argentine knows the English top flight well, having enjoyed spells at West Ham, Manchester City and Manchester United where he claimed three Premier League titles and a Champions League winners’ medal.

There’s no doubting the 30 year-old’s netting prowess either; Tevez racked up 84 goals in 202 appearances throughout his seven year Premier League career, and his 18 league goals this term have all but mathematically confirmed Juve’s third consecutive Serie A title.

Furthermore, famed for his ruthless work-rate, directness and South American flair, the former City and United star’s style certainly draws parallels with Liverpool’s No.7.

Tevez doesn’t offer too much in the way of longevity and his mercurial nature has certainly caused managers problems in the past. But having been snapped up by the Turin outfit for just £8million last summer, the Argentina international could prove to be a cost-effective stop-gap replacement for Luis Suarez if Liverpool can land him on the cheap.
