Peter Crouch could be about to make a surprise return to Liverpool after a two-year absence.

The Independent are reporting that the 29-year-old forward was a target for Roy Hodgson while he was manager at Fulham, but he was beaten the signature by Harry Redknapp and Spurs. The 62-year-old is now said to be looking to finally link up with with the former Portsmouth striker.

A deal for Crouch will hardly soften the blow for Liverpool fans should Fernando Torres leave Anfield, but the England international would provide more striking options in a front line short on numbers.

Hodgson has yet to speak with Torres about his future at the club but, despite interest from both Manchester City and Chelsea, the new Liverpool boss is confident he can convince the Spanish marksman to stay.

Juventus' David Trezeguet is also being linked as a potential target for Hodgson, with the Frenchman said to be valued in the region of £8 million.
