Liverpool surprised over Samaras link

Liverpool sources have told ESPN of their surprise over a report in the Sun which linked them with a January move for Celtic striker Georgios Samaras.

Samaras, 27, impressed in the 2-1 win against Barcelona in the Champions League and hit three goals in five starts in the group stages to help them qualify for the last-16. However, the Greek international’s contract is running down and expires in 2014, with a report suggesting he could be sold for around £5 million in January.

Liverpool were thought to be interested as they have only one fit striker in their squad - Luis Suarez - but sources at the club revealed to ESPN that Samaras does not fit the criteria that Brendan Rodgers is after and if they had wanted a player of his type then they would not have let Andy Carroll leave for West Ham on loan.

One player who is on Rodgers’ radar is Chelsea striker Daniel Sturridge, although both the fee and his reported wage demands are significant barriers to any potential deal.
