Liverpool Target Barcelona And Atletico Madrid Stars

Liverpool is lining up an ambitious La Liga double swoop for Atletico Madrid winger Arda Turan and Barcelona star Alexis Sanchez.

Brendan Rodgers' side have scored just nine times in seven Premier League games so far this season - with five of those coming in the win at Norwich.

And Rodgers, who sanctioned the loan departure of club record signing Andy Carroll to West Ham earlier this year, has seen his attacking options reduced once more following the news that Fabio Borini suffered a fractured foot.

And according to reports in Spain, Rodgers dispatched scouts to Turkey's recent 1-0 World Cup qualifying defeat at home to Romania in order to keep an eye on Turan, who is a self-confessed Liverpool fan.

The 25-year-old, who joined Atletico Madrid last year, was heavily linked with a switch to Anfield during his time at former club Galatasaray.

Another player on Rodgers' radar is Chile international Sanchez.

The 23-year-old impressed during his debut campaign at the Nou Camp last term, but there are some suggestions that he could fall out of favour under new Barca boss Tito Vilanova, having failed to start three of his side's seven league games this season.
