Liverpool are set to make a £4 million move for Palermo and Uruguay striker, Abel Hernandez during the January transfer window.
According to the Metro, the highly touted striker is unhappy with life in Italy and is looking to move as soon as he can.
A proposed deadline-day switch to Arsenal fell apart at the last minute and it's put the rest of Europe on notice, especially Liverpool, who're looking to find ways to appease Luis Suarez and keep him at Anfield.
The bargain move would see Hernandez line-up next to Suarez, just like they do for Uruguay.
Brendan Rodgers has previously said that he hadn't conducted all the business he wanted to and that having another striker would've been ideal.
The addition of Hernandez would make for an exciting partnership with Suarez but he may find it a struggle to get ahead of in-form Daniel Sturridge, if he can keep up his fantastic start to the year.
Hernandez has scored 21 times in 86 games for Palermo, who're currently in Serie B, another factor in his wish to move. He's also scored seven times in 10 games for Uruguay and will be a key player at next year's World Cup - should they qualify.
