Liverpool have reportedly been offered Lyon striker Lisandro Lopez.
The Daily Mirror suggests that the French club are prepared to let their Argentine forward leave for the right price, and have sounded out Liverpool over a potential deal.
Lopez, 27, is the latest in a long line of hitmen to be linked with Liverpool as Roy Hodgson searches for a new partner for Anfield hero Fernando Torres.
Oscar Cardozo, Mario Gomez and Adam Szalai have also been mentioned as new Liverpool recruits as Hodgson prepares to add to his squad in January.
The Reds boss explained today that new Liverpool owners NESV are prepared to back him in the transfer market as they look to turn the Merseysiders into a potent European force once again.
"If we want the right quality, we have got to be prepared to pay the right price," Hodgson told the official Liverpool website.
"The owners know that perfectly well. We have got to make certain that if we go out and spend £20m, we are getting a £20m player.
"We want to be attracting the players that Barcelona, Real Madrid and Inter are chasing. It would be nice to think that we can shop at a high level."
