From Merseyside to Madrid, to Newcastle, to Manchester United and back to Merseyside.
That should be the career path for former England striker Michael Owen according to Graeme Sharp.
At 32-years-old he isn't one for the future and following his injuries he doesn't have the pace that he once had and ripped defences apart with, but what he was and remains to be is a natural goalscorer, even if it is on a bit-part basis.
You couldn't rely on him to play week-in week-out, but you know that if managed correctly he would continue to score goals in the Premier League.
In fact he's proved he can while at Manchester United. 5 Premier League goals in three years might not make the headlines, but overall he has scored 17 goals from 18 starts (he has also made 34 sub appearances).
For someone with patience, his goals per minutes ratio might surprise many and while speaking to talkSPORT the former league winner believes we should take a punt on him.
'Up front is somewhere Everton need to look to strengthen,' he said. 'If Jelavic got injured we would be really light up top for a goalscorer.
'That was the problem last year at the beginning of the season, we couldn`t score goals. Jelavic addressed that problem but we need back-up and that is why the name of Michael Owen has come up in conversations.'
Owen is desperate to remain in the Premier League so his wages might not prove to be the stumbling block people believe they are likely to be?
He would still be a risk, but a risk worth taking?
