The former Reds striker is available on a free transfer and the Anfield boss refused to rule out re-signing the 32-year-old in his post-match press conference
Liverpool lost 2-0 to Arsenal on Sunday afternoon, adding pressure to Brendan Rodgers' revolution at Anfield. With two defeats on the board already and just a solitary Premier League point, questions are beginning to be asked of the Reds boss.
For all the pretty, patient, build-up play, the Liverpool continue to lack ideas in the final third. The two goals they have scored this campaign have been from set-pieces and although their approach play has shown promise, Luis Suarez and Fabio Borini do not have the killer instinct needed to put the finishing touches to their incisive moves.
Of course, the transfer window drama on deadline day has played it's part. In the post-game press conference, Rodgers said that he believed a replacement for the outgoing Andy Carroll had been lined up. Asked whether he would have allowed the £35 million man to sign on loan for West Ham had he known there would be no replacement, Rodgers simply answered: "No."
The Liverpool squad now contains just two recognised forwards in Suarez and Borini, which led Rodgers to hint that he was considering bringing a former Anfield hero back to the club.
Michael Owen is still on a free transfer following his release from Manchester United at the end of last season and Rodgers hinted that he was considering re-signing the 32-year-old.
So, if you were in Rodgers' shoes, with his goalscoring problems, would you take a punt and sign Owen? Let us know by voting in our poll, leaving a comment below, or getting in touch through Facebook or Twitter.
