Liverpool are keen to bolster their squad and see Polish midfielder, Milosz Kozak, as an attractive addition, reports the Metro.

The English club are looking at options to restore some depth as they aim to qualify for Europe, and possibly even mount a challenge for their first Premier league title since Kenny Dalglish's side of 1989-1990.

Liverpool manager, Brendan Rodgers, believes that his defensive cover needs to be replenished after Jose Enrique and Sebastian Coates were ruled out due to injury.

Chief scout, Mel Johnson, who has been following the progress of a handful of young players in Poland, feels that the versatile midfielder, who can also play at full-back, is something special.

“Milosz is one of the most talented players we are watching in Poland,” Johnson told Polish tabloid, Fakt.

“If we make a deal with the club, Milosz receives a chance to develop and perhaps even play in the Premier League. We associate great hopes with this player.”

The Merseyside club are keen to add Kozac to their squad due to his versatility. Kozac’s primary position is in midfield with him being able to play seamlessly on either wing, through the centre while also being deployed as a left back if needed.

Kozak currently plays for Polish first division side, Lech Poznan. The player has represented the Polish national team at various junior levels; turning out for Poland at Under-15, Under-16, and Under-17 level.

Liverpool is not the only club in the running for his signature, according to Metro, but are regarded as the favorites.

Liverpool recently beat east London side, West Ham United, by 4-1 on Saturday evening. That win makes it their second in three days. The result sees them leapfrog Chelsea and move up the table into second position.

Among the scorers was Uruguayan, Luis Suarez, who has been in scintillating form for the Reds this season. Summer signing, Mamadou Sakho, also got onto the scoresheet for Liverpool by scoring his first ever goal for the club.

Liverpool’s two other goals of the match were own-goals scored by Guy Demel and Joey O’Brien.

Bizarrely enough there was a third own goal on the night, this time scored by Reds centre back Martin Skrtel.
