Real Mallorca striker Tomer Hemed is a reported January transfer target for Liverpool, according to Sky Sports.

The Israeli international has attracted attention from a host of Premier League clubs after a prolific start to the season, where he has netted six goals in eight games in La Liga.

Add to that, five goals in his last two Euro 2012 qualifier outings, and it's clear to see why the 25-year-old is in such high demand.

Reds boss Brendan Rodgers has been credited with an interest in bringing Hemed to Anfield, as he continues his search for striker reinforcements ahead of the mid-season transfer window.

The player's agent, Max Meltzer, has confirmed there have been a number of inquiries, but that Hemed is ignoring speculation to focus on scoring more goals for Mallorca.

"Tomer is in exceptional form in La Liga and for his national team and naturally several Premier League clubs are tracking him," he told

"One or two clubs may be disappointed they didn't go all out in the summer to get him as his value continues to increase.

"He is a top professional, focused on his role at Real Mallorca and he won't be distracted by the speculation. If and when he has any decisions to make he will make them at that point."

Liverpool currently have Luis Suarez as the only fit striker on Merseyside after the recent injury to summer signing Fabio Borini, who sustained a broken foot, ruling him out for three months, when he was on duty with Italy U21s.
