Liverpool confident beating Stoke for Sunderland striker Jones

Liverpool boss Rafa Benitez is reviving his interest in Sunderland striker Kenwyne Jones.

The Mirror says Benitez has been given the go-ahead to bring in two new players as soon as the window opens on January 1 - and his main priority is cover for striker Fernando Torres.

Jones is more in Liverpool's price range, and he could be available in January, after relations with his Sunderland boss Steve Bruce have become strained in recent months.

The Trinidad and Tobago international has scored 23 goals in 76 Premier League games for Sunderland, and would be available at around the £10million mark.

Stoke have been pursuing the striker too, but Jones would be keener to make the move to Anfield, and he could become a more likely option for Benitez if his other targets prove unattainable.
