Liverpool are reportedly preparing a summer bid for Spanish starlet Bojan Krkic.
The Barcelona striker is a product of the Catalan club's youth system, but having struggled to break into the first team on a regular basis Liverpool have sensed an opportuinty to bring the player to England.
Other Barclays Premier League clubs have been linked with Bojan in the past, but Liverpool boss Kenny Dalglish now appears to lead the chase for the player that appears certain to ensue at the end of the season.
Sport claims the Reds have identified the player as someone to bolster the attacking ranks further at Anfield, despite spending £55 million on strikers in the January transfer window.
Goal.com goes on to state that the Spanish publication claims Liverpool 'will launch' an approach for the player, who made his debut for the international side in 2008.
A Barcelona senior since making his debut as a teenager back in 2007, Bojan has never been able to earn a regular spot for the La Liga outfit, and despite recently signing a new contract with the club is thought to be frustrated about a lack of opportunities.
New Liverpool owners NESV have already shown that they are willing to back the Anfield outfit financially, and Dalglish has hinted that the Merseysiders could continue their big spending in the summer.
The manager is thought to be keen on strengthening in a number of core positions at the first opportunity, and another striker is believed to be on the wish list for the Liverpool boss.
Bojan, who can also play in the wing positions, would fit the bill of young, attacking talent set out by John W. Henry and the board at Liverpool when they first took over at the club, and director of football strategy Damien Comolli is also thought to be a fan of the player.
It's unknown if Pep Guardiola is willing to sell the player, but a €20 million offer from Liverpool could force the manager to make a decision in the summer.
