Liverpool could soon unleash a new forward pairing of Karim Benzema and Alexandre Lacazette if Brendan Rodgers has his way.

The Reds are looking for more firepower up front this month, following Daniel Sturridge's injury and now talks are underway with two targets.

It was reported earlier in the week that Rodgers was finalising a £38million bid to bring in Real Madrid's Karim Benzema, and joining the Frenchman on Merseyside could well be fellow countryman Lacazette.

The Lyon striker is one of Europe's leading marksmen this term, hitting 23 goals in as many appearances for the Ligue 1 outfit - and his exploits have not gone unnoticed.

According to the Daily Express secret talks with Liverpool are underway over a £25million transfer, although Arsenal are also in the race.
