Liverpool are once again being link with a move for Paraguayan international striker Roque Santa Cruz.

The Manchester City forward is set to leave Eastlands in the summer, and Liverpool boss Roy Hodgson is thought to be a potential suitor for the player.

Santa Cruz has fallen out-of-favour at his current club, struggling to break into the side since the arrival of Roberto Mancini as replacement for former boss Mark Hughes.

Mancini has admitted that he would be willing to let the player leave in the opening month of 2011, and the player confirmed that he'd consider moving on in a bid to play first team football.

Liverpool have twice been linked with the player in the past, first in April 2009 and then again last summer when the Metro claimed that the Reds were considering a double offer for Santa Cruz and Wayne Bridge.

Paul Konchesky arrived to fill the left back slot at Anfield, but Liverpool are still thought to be in the market for a striker in a bid to find a foil for Fernando Torres.

Fresh investment from new owners NESV has led to the Merseyside outfit being linked with a string of players, and the Liverpool boss is thought to have earmarked 'five or six' players as potential transfer targets.

Santa Cruz represents great value for money, with the former Bayern Munich striker thought to be available for a fee in the region of £4 million, although Liverpool could face competition from Blackburn to sign the player.

Live4Liverpool urges the Reds to make a move for the player at the first available opportunity, and the Paraguayan international could again be on the radar for the Premier League giants.
