Kenny Dalglish's search for a new striker is nearing a conclusion, according to former Liverpool goalkeeper Bruce Grobbelaar.

The Reds have struggled for goals this season, and Luis Suarez's eight-game ban has left Dalglish short on options up front.

Andy Carroll and Dirk Kuyt have deputised for the Uruguayan, but the former has netted just twice this season, while the latter has failed to score in the league.

Thus, the acquisition of more firepower during the January transfer window is reported to have been identified as a priority for the Reds, and numerous players have been linked with a move to Anfield.

Chelsea's Salomon Kalou and Lille hotshot Moussa Sow have reportedly been on the Liverpool radar, while Darren Bent and Nikica Jelavic have been touted as possible targets.

But, according to Grobbelaar, it is a forward operating in the Eredivisie who is on a the verge of a winter switch to Merseyside.

"There are two strikers [Liverpool are interested in]," Grobbelaar told talkSPORT.

"I know that [Kenny Dalglish] is looking at a South American striker who is playing in Holland and I know that he's quite close in getting another striker.

"I'm not going to be the one to actually tell you who, but I'm sure that the striker will be arriving soon."
