Liverpool eye exciting Bundesliga pair

Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers is pondering a stunning double raid on Bundesliga side Hoffenheim for Kevin Volland and Roberto Firmino in January, according to reports from the Daily Star.

Despite spending in excess of £100m over the summer, the Northern Irishman is expected to delve back into the transfer market in 2015, with life after Luis Suarez proving more difficult than expected.

Rickie Lambert and Mario Balotelli both arrived to back-up Daniel Sturridge in the Reds’ attack, yet the current crop of Anfield strikers have notched a meagre two goals combined in all competitions so far this term.
