I agree that he needs a poacher type player to play with him. If you can get Borini fit, then he could be the man. Although Rodgers seemed to play him out wide before his injury (Lord knows why). But you've of course had Sterling and Suso come through since then, so perhaps he'll deploy Borini in his natural position once he's back.
Again though, I'm not sure if Rodgers favors playing with 2 up front. We'll see I guess.
