Hodgson To Bring Owen Back At Anfield

Liverpool boss Roy Hodgson is planning an audacious swoop to sign Man United striker Michael Owen this January. The Anfield boss has limited attacking options and believes that the England international's lack of first team action may make him a viable purchase. Sir Alex Ferguson may well resist offers for the 30 year old striker even though he appears to be low down the pecking order at Old Trafford. Owen will not have been happy about missing out on Champions League action in Valencia after he followed up his brace at Scunthorpe in the Carling Cup with a crucial equalizer away at Bolton. The former Liverpool legend has his fair share of detractors among the Anfield support but there is no arguing about the success he had during his eight years in the firs team during which time he netted an incredible 158 goals in 297 matches. The Chester born striker has been plagued with injuries since he left Liverpool but when called upon is still a lethal finisher and could offer decent support to Fernando Torres and help share the goal scoring load. A move for Owen would only cost around £4-5m as his contract is due to run out in the summer when he will no doubt be the subject of much speculative interest.
