Liverpool eye shock move for ex-Barcelona sensation

Liverpool are pondering a surprise raid for Stoke newbie Bojan Krkic, according to The Metro.

The former Barcelona prodigy switched to the Britannia Stadium in a shock £1.5m move over the summer, ending a tricky few years which saw him sold to Roma and re-signed by the Catalan giants then shipped out on loan to Ajax.

Once dubbed the ‘new Lionel Messi’, Bojan failed to live up to his billing, but has been mightily impressive in the red and white stripes of the Potters.

And reports suggest that his performances for Stoke have alerted Brendan Rodgers.

The Reds chief is thought to be eyeing new attacking talent ahead of the looming transfer window, with Rickie Lambert, with two goals, the only orthodox centre-forward in his squad to have found the back of the net in the Premier League on more than one occasion this season.

Stoke are set to demand a much higher fee than the money paid for Bojan last summer, yet it remains unclear what sum they would consider.
