Liverpool icon John Barnes wants to see them move for Real Madrid striker Gonzalo Higuain.

Barnes feels Liverpool are missing a genuine goal scorer.

He told talkSPORT: "Luis Suarez is a fantastic player, he scores goals, he comes short, he goes wide but what they are missing is a real penalty box player.

“They have to get a classic centre-forward, a number nine, who’s going to be a six-yard box player and they need to get one of really proven quality, someone like Gonzalo Higuain.

"He’s not playing at Real Madrid, if you get the ball in the box he can score, he can play outside the box and he’s the kind of player that Liverpool should be going for.”
