Liverpool are reportedly set to rival Sunderland for FC Zurich striker Admir Mehmedi when the transfer window opens in January.
The 20-year-old has scored 13 goals in 47 appearances for his current employers, while he has been awarded three senior international caps for Switzerland.
According to the Daily Mail, Liverpool have sent scouts to monitor Mehmedi and will battle Sunderland for his signature.
The Barclays Premier League duo are also likely to have to contest Nuremberg, it has been claimed, in pursuit of Mehmedi.
Liverpool, meanwhile, are also alleged to be tracking Wigan forward Hugo Rodallega as Kenny Dalglish scours the market for potential goalscoring reinforcements.
Although it is not thought to be an area of priority for the Liverpool boss, Dalglish is said to be exploring the possibility of adding another striker to his Anfield ranks.
Liverpool have also been linked with a swoop for Fulham's Moussa Dembele, who has talked up a potential move to Tottenham.
