The Departure of Fernando Torres to Chelsea saw Liverpool fans revolt at the Spanish National. After this weekends defeat of his new team upon his debut they aren't quite to upset. The arrivals of both Andy Carroll and Luis Suarez, whom scored on his Anfield debut, have given the Reds faithful much hope.
Now that the current situation has been decided for the time being, Liverpool look to continue their youth and talent influx with the possible addition of two new Spanish shot takers to replace their formerly beloved Torres.
|Cazorla to Replace Maxi|
26-year old Villareal attacker Santiago Cazorla is believed to be a prime candidate for Liverpool addition in the summer. With David Ngog at the right age for a loan move to secure first team action the next two season possibly, much like Chelsea's Daniel Sturridge, having Cazorla to call upon behind Carroll and Suarez would be a welcomed addition.
Cazorla is also a skilled wide player, and his arrival could mark the departure of Maxi Rodriguez whom has just not been up to Liverpool caliber since his arrival. Having missed a sitter at the Bridge on Sunday, he did not do anything to endear himself to his new owners, as his strike could have truly put a stamp on the match early on for the Reds.
|Spanish Starlet Alcacer|
With the mind of keeping the academy rolling, and the talent flowing up into the first team, another young Spanish striker is on the Reds wish list for the summer. 17-year old Valencia starlet Francisco Alcacer is being scouted by the scousers.
The young Spaniard has 14 goals for Valencia B in 34 appearances, and has scored 17 international goals between 18 appearances from the U-16's, U-17's, and U-18's of Spain. He made is first team debut in a 4-1 victory for Los Che against Deportivo Logrones in Spain's Copa Del Rey
