Liverpool plot huge January swoop for former Real Madrid ace

Liverpool are plotting a mega money January bid for Arsenal and Chelsea target Gonzalo Higuain, according to reports in the Sunday Express.

The Napoli striker has been linked with a move to the Premier League since leaving Real Madrid in 2013, when he joined the Serie A giants.

An Argentine international, the 27-year old hitman has scored five goals in six appearances so far this season – reportedly convincing under fire Reds boss Brendan Rodgers to splash out in order to bring him to Merseyside.

Despite the return of Daniel Sturridge, the Anfield outfit have only managed seven goals in as many league outings so far this term.

Premier League sides have reportedly been put off by the striker’s huge buyout clause in Italy, which is reported to be around £74m.

However, Rodgers is said to be preparing a £33m bid for the hitman when the transfer window reopens in the New Year.
