Liverpool eye Brazilian star Afonso Alves

RAFAEL BENITEZ is tracking Brazilian striker Afonso Alves as he contemplates another spending spree in the January transfer window.

Alves is one of several names under consideration by the Liverpool manager, who can expect further backing from the club’s co-owners George Gillett and Tom Hicks.

And Benitez’s interest would suggest Peter Crouch is heading for an Anfield exit in the new year.

Alves is one of the most sought-after forwards in Europe and scored an incredible seven times for Dutch club Heerenveen on Sunday in their 9-0 victory over Eredivisie rivals Heracles Almelo.

Well the rumours are Man U are also interested in him amongst others so Liverpool will have a fight on their hands to sign him methinks!

I don't think he'll end up in Man Utd. Why? Cause i think the signing of Tevez is Utd's big signing this season. I doubt they'll buy another striker.

Liverpool needs a quality striker and will spend a lot of money in getting one, most likely Afonso Alves.

We have 3 quality strikers in Torres,Voronin and Kuyt.

Crouch is capable also on his day.

We dont need another striker, we need another good midfielder and another stalwart defender in the same vein as Hyppia to replace him when he leaves.

Yeh you're right, my bad. Anyway I think Afonso Alves is better then both Kuyt and Voronin.
