Liverpool are reportedly holding talks with CSKA Moscow over a possible move for Milos Krasic.
The Serbian winger has been linked with a handful of Premier League clubs over the past months, but Liverpool are now thought to be favourites for a possible January move.
25-year-old Krasic moved to CSKA Moscow from Vojvodina in 2004, making 136 league appearances for the Russian Premier League side since the switch. He has also gone on to earn international recognition, making 28 appearance to date for the Serbian national side.
It is his Champions League performances that have really caught the eye however, with a stand-out goal in the 3-3 draw with Manchester United providing a glimpse of his undeniable talent on the european stage.
Reports in the Daily Star claim that Rafa Benitez will look to secure a deal for the player, with negotiations between the two parties beginning last month.
The Reds would have to pay in the region of £12 million for the attack-minded player's services, and departures might be needed at Anfield before the fee can be reached.
Krasic's agent, Dejan Joksimovic, hinted at a possible Premier League move back in December, and Chelsea, Manchester United and Manchester City are all thought to be monitoring the player.
"I think that if Krasic leaves CSKA in January, he is 90 per cent likely to go to England," Joksimovic told Calciomercato.
