Liverpool are being linked with a January move for Brazilian striker Vagner Love.

The CSKA Moscow forward is thought to be out-of-favour at the Russian club, returning home for loan spells at Palmeiras and Flamengo in the last few seasons.

Love joined CSKA in 2004, and has an impressive goalscoring record for the Koni. In six seasons, the striker has scored 97 goals in 185 appearances for the Russian Premier League outfit.

Liverpool boss Roy Hodgson is thought to be in the market for a striker, and the Reds have been linked with Carlton Cole, Peter Crouch, Mario Gomez and Antonio Cassano to name just four player in the last week.

The former Fulham boss has been promised money to spend by new owners NESV, with Liverpool thought to have a January transfer war chest in the region of £35 million.

Hodgson has hinted at potentially 'five or six' additions at Anfield in the opening month of 2011, and a foil for Fernando Torres is thought to be a priority.

Liverpool were first linked with Love in 2009, when the News of the World reported that Everton and Spurs were also interested in bringing the Brazilian international to the Premier League.

The link has gone quiet over the past 18 months, but FootyLatest now place Liverpool back in the race to sign the mercurial player.

Whilst the value of the player is up for debate, Liverpool will need to pay in the region of £10 million to bring the player to Merseyside.
