Owen and Zaki linked

It seems clear that an experienced front man ought to be a major January priority.

Jô is not yet the finished product, and too much is being asked of him. He started every game in between the last two international breaks. Sturridge and Evans are great talents but green. We cannot rely on the fitness of Bozhinov. Vassell and Benjani are the sort of players we need to leave behind as we move up.

And today we've been linked with Michael Owen and Amr Zaki. They are both players whose futures will be sorted out this season, probably in January. Owen's contract expires in the summer, as does Zaki's loan deal.

They are both the sort of player we could be looking at. It's easy to forget that Owen scored 118 in 216 in the league for Liverpool, and has 40 in 89 for England. Zaki has 7 in 8 in the league so far. Talk of Tevez, Benzema or Huntelaar may be far fetched at this stage. Could either of these be a more likely solution?
