Liverpool are reportedly attempting to sign Inter Milan teenager Luc Castaignos before the close of the transfer window.
The Dutch striker moved to the San Siro from Feyenoord in the summer and is said to be available for loan this month, having made only four appearances for Inter.
According to The National, Liverpool have made an offer for the 19-year-old, and hope to bring him to Anfield in for the short-term at least.
It is claimed Liverpool hope to secure the option of making a Castaignos' potential switch a permanent one, should he impress Kenny Dalglish.
The Reds boss is keen to bolster his strikeforce in the absence of Luis Suarez and, it would appear, Castaignos has been identified as a possible acquisition.
Castaignos scored 15 goals in 37 appearances for Feyenoord before his move to Milan, but has not played for Inter since November.
Along with Castaignos, Liverpool have also been linked with Colombian duo Jackson Martinez and Hugo Rodallega as Dalglish scours the market for reinforcements.
