It's not as difficult as rocket science to understand that Liverpool have been linked to a number of strikers around the world during the January transfer window.

Liverpool's forward line have not been able to produce goals, despite been given many chances by Brendan Rodgers. He has had to cut a sorry figure often, since their forwards have not been able to find the back of the net at all.

Rickie Lambert and Mario Balotelli were signed by the Reds' boss during summer, but they have been a huge failure, with the latter being a disgrace without knocking a single goal in the league with half the season already gone by.

The situation was such for the Reds that they were forced to play Raheem Sterling in the striking role, but he was also not able to make any impact in the absence of proper support.

In fact, he was so exhausted after playing week in and out that he was even given a break by the club, deservedly so.

Hence, Brendan Rodgers has been linked to a number of strikers and this time around, it is two of the best strikers in Europe – Karim Benzema and Alexandre Lacazette – who have once again attracted the Reds.

The Daily Star reports that the club is preparing a double swoop, including the French strikers to bring them to Anfield for £63m.

This is not for the first time that the club has been linked to both these players; only a few days ago, the Real Madrid striker was said to be on the radar of Liverpool with a £38million bid.

Brendan Rodgers was also interested in Benzema during summer, but could not sign the player.

The Real Madrid front man would be a great addition to the Reds, as he has a natural goal scoring ability and also provides assists to the players.

In a team packed with stars in the Los Blancos, he is the unsung hero.

While Alexandre Lacazette is definitely the hero for Ligue 1 side Lyon, as he has been scoring goals every week primarily, as he has already scored 23 goals in the league. 

No wonder, he has been targeted by top clubs across Europe, including teams from the English Premier League.

Even if the Reds fail to sign both the players, their season could turn around, even if they are able to sign either of the above-mentioned strikers.

With Daniel Sturridge scheduled to come back from injury soon, the Reds might have a formidable forward line.
