Liverpool has been heavily targeting Aston Villa striker Christian Benteke, but it is now being reported by the Telegraph that this will not likely come to fruition.
This is due to Liverpool not being able to meet the terms of Benteke’s buyout clause that is worth £32.5m.
The Reds are now focusing their attention on two strikers from outside the Premier League, as they are looking at Juventus striker Fernando Llorente and Sevilla striker Carlos Bacca.
Llorente scored seven goals for Juventus in Serie A matches before adding another goal in UEFA Champions League play while leading his team to the championship game against Barcelona.
Bacca, meanwhile, dominated La Liga play with 20 goals in 37 games while adding another seven in Europa Cup games and totaling 32 in the 2014-15 season.
He did all of this despite being only 18 years old, so Liverpool will undoubtedly be keen on bringing him in to add to their scoring attack.
Neither Bacca nor Llorente will be cheap though, as they are expected to be respectively valued at £21.4m and £14.3m.
