Liverpool are tipped to move for Newcastle United striker Demba Ba.

Reds legend Mark Lawrenson says they are short of striker options.

And he wrote in the Mirror: "Demba Ba at Newcastle will be another one that Liverpool have a look at in January. Alan Pardew has made public the fact that he has that £7.5million release clause and I was surprised at that at first.

"But then, after the problems being created by Ba’s agents and the people around him, I just wonder if it is a shot across their bows from Pardew to make it clear that he will not be dictated to by anyone."
