Liverpool are once again being linked with a move for French international Mamadou Sakho.
The PSG defender has been linked with a string of clubs in recent weeks, with Arsenal, AC Milan and Juventus all thought to be interested in the player. However, Liverpool boss Roy Hodgson is thought to be amongst the contenders for the player and is ready to make a move in January.
Sakho has spent his entire career in the French capital, making his debut as a teenager in 2007. He has gone on to become a stalwart at the Parc des Princes, and made his international debut for Les Bleus earlier in the month.
Hodgson was in the Wembley crowd to watch Sakho play in France's 2-1 win over England, and the Liverpool manager was thought to be impressed with the player's composure and tackling ability on the biggest stage.
New Reds owners NESV have pledged a transfer war chest thought to be in the region of £35 million, and the former Fulham boss is thought to be keen on adding at least 'five or six' players at Anfield in the opening month of 2011.
A foil for Fernando Torres is thought to be the priority at Liverpool, but the Merseyside outfit are keen to strengthen in a number of core positions, including the centre of defence.
Lille centre back Adil Rami has also been linked with a move to the Premier League, and both players are thought to be on the Liverpool wishlist heading into the transfer window.
