Liverpool are prepared to break the bank to land Oscar Cardozo, according to reports.

Mexican publication Ultima Hora suggests that the Benfica striker is on the Liverpool radar and could make a £22 million move to Anfield in January.

Roy Hodgson has made no secret of his desire to draft in another goalscorer to take the burden away from Fernando Torres and - with new Liverpool owners NESV said to be prepared to invest heavily in the squad - Cardozo could make the switch to Merseyside.

Cardozo will be a familiar name to the Anfield faithful after the Chilean struck three times in two matches against Rafa Benitez's Reds in last season's Europa League.

The 27-year-old hotshot scored 38 goals in total during the last campaign and has since been linked with a number of Europe's top clubs.

But, if reports are to believed, Liverpool appear to be frontrunners for his signature in a deal which would firmly establish NESV as serious backers to the Anfield cause.
