Liverpool are thought to be one of the clubs chasing Russian striker Pavel Pogrebnyak.

The Stuttgart striker is being courted by a string of Premier League clubs ahead of the January transfer window, with Liverpool boss Roy Hodgson thought to be heading the chasing pack.

Spurs and Blackburn Rovers are also thought to be keen on the player, with the later close to a deal for the player a few season's back from former club Zenit St Petersburg.

After going off the radar slightly last season, Pogrebnyak has come back to form with a bang this season, opening the Bundesliga campaign with five goals in seven games.

This form has alerted the Premier League pack, with Liverpool keen to add a strike partner for Spanish star Fernando Torres in the opening 2011.

New Anfield owners NESV have promised Hodgson a transfer war chest in the region of £35 million, and the Liverpool boss is thought to have targeted 'five or six' players to strengthen his squad.

A striker is thought to be the number one priority for the Merseyside outfit, and Liverpool have been linked with Mario Gomez, Peter Crouch and Carlton Cole in recent weeks as the rumour mill operates in full swing.

The arrival of Damien Commoli as Director of Football strategy suggests Liverpool will look abroad to bring new talent to Anfield, and 27-year-old Pogrebnyak looks to be a viable option after his fine form this season.
