Liverpool are allegedly keeping tabs on Stuttgart striker Pavel Pogrebnyak.

According to Sky Sports, Liverpool will have to battle with a host of European clubs - including Tottenham - for Pogrebnyak, who is valued at around £12 million.

The 26-year-old Russia international has impressed in the Bundesliga since his arrival in 2009 and is regarded as one of Stuttgart's prized assets.

Roy Hodgson is expected to invest heavily in his Liverpool squad in January and will be armed with a reported transfer kitty of £30 million. However, Liverpool will have to battle to bring Pogrebnyak to Anfield as Stuttgart are reluctant to let the former Zenit St Petersburg frontman leave.

"I have been listening to rumours that Liverpool and Tottenham have their eyes on Pavel," Stuttgart head coach Fredi Bobic told German publication Bild.

"It's a fact. However, none of these clubs have been talking to us about him lately. He is a player of VfB Stuttgart."

Pogrebnyak is the latest in a long line of strikers to have been linked with a New Year move to Liverpool as Hodgson searches for another goalscorer to take the burden away from Anfield hero Fernando Torres.
