Liverpool linked with shock move for former Kop striker

Liverpool are being linked with a shock move for former striker Peter Crouch.
The 29-year-old left the Reds for Portsmouth for a reported fee of £11 million in 2008 after three eventful years at Anfield.
But now it appears Liverpool are considering bringing the Spurs star back to Merseyside as they search desperately for striking reinforcements.
It had initially been reported by the Daily Star that Liverpool were keeping tabs on the England international and now, according to, Spurs would be willing to entertain offers of £10-12 million for the ex-Southampton forward.
Crouch is just one of several names to have been linked with a January move to Liverpool as Roy Hodgson steps up his pursuit of a new strike partner for Anfield star Fernando Torres.
The Liverpool boss has frequently admitted his intention to bring more potent attacking options to Anfield when the transfer window opens in order to ease the burden on Torres and Reds captain Steven Gerrard.
Liverpool have also been linked with moves for Bayern Munich hotshot Mario Gomez and Bolton ace Johan Elmander as new Reds owners NESV look to back their manager in the transfer market.
Hodgson will reportedly have upwards of £20 million to spend next month on new recruits as he and NESV aim to transform fortunes at Liverpool.
