Liverpool are offering the vacant No7 shirt to new signing Rickie Lambert.

The Mail on Sunday says Luis Suarez's £75million departure to Barcelona has led to huge interest over who will wear No7 next season – a jersey made famous by Kevin Keegan and Kenny Dalglish.

Imminent signing Lazar Markovic, who wore No 50 for Benfica, has already had his shirt request accepted by the club and other signings Adam Lallana and Emre Can have been handed numbers 20 and 23 respectively.

That leaves the door open for 32-year-old Lambert to complete a fairytale having been released by his hometown club as a youngster.

The striker wore No7 for his former club Southampton but no decision was taken about his shirt number for Liverpool until the Suarez saga was settled.

Now, Kirkby-born Lambert will discuss the situation with manager Brendan Rodgers and decide between them if the extra significance of the jersey will work for both sides.
