Liverpool are poised to make an approach for Holland forward Ricky van Wolfswinkel, according to reports.
Last week there were suggestions in the media that the Reds are to offer £8 million for the 21-year-old, and now Tribalfootball says that FC Utrecht are expecting an imminent bid from the Anfield club.
Roy Hodgson is understood to have identified his striking department as an area in need of reinforcement and, hence, has been linked to numerous goalscorers since taking over as Liverpool boss last month.
And, if reports are to be believed, van Wolfswinkel could soon be on his way to Merseyside.
The FC Utrecht frontman is one of the hottest prospects in Dutch football, and has hit the ground running this year with six strikes in seven games; adding to his tally of 10 goals last season in his debut campaign at the Stadion Galgenwaard.
Celtic have previously shown an interest in the former Vitesse marksman, but Liverpool look to be leading the chase for the Holland international.
The Reds have also been linked with moves for West Ham striker Carlton Cole and Swedish hotshot Ola Toivonen as they look to add a new recruit before the transfer window closes next week.
