Liverpool are reportedly tracking West Brom winger Jerome Thomas.
According to The Sun, the Reds are considering a bid for the £5 million-rated Arsenal academy product should they miss out on Aston Villa wideman Ashley Young.
The 27-year-old has enjoyed a fruitful return to the Barclays Premier League with the West Brom; playing a starring role for the Baggies this season - including an instrumental performance as Roberto Di Matteo's side shocked Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium.
His displays have since reportedly caught the eye of Kenny Dalglish who is thought to be keen to bring him to Liverpool.
The new Liverpool boss is hopeful he can bring attacking reinforcements to Anfield during the transfer window, and Thomas could provide the added potency they so desperately crave.
Villa winger Young is also reportedly on the Liverpool radar, as is Manchester City's Shaun Wright-Phillips with speculation continuing to mount that the Reds will spend big in the transfer window.
However, Liverpool director of football strategy Damien Comolli has moved to calm rumours that their will be plenty of new recruits moving to Anfield.
"I will stick to what I said from the beginning: if Kenny Dalglish is not happy with a player we think could make the team better then it's always down to the manager. That hasn't changed," Comolli said at a Liverpool press conference unveiling Dalglish.
"We didn't even have chance to talk about the transfer window yet. We have been working on it with Roy [Hodgson] and the owners but I need to update Kenny on what's going on.
"Will there be some activity? I don't know. I still don't know. It's a very complicated market in January."
