Everton have emerged as Liverpool’s biggest challengers in the race to sign Pavel Pogrebnyak, according to Russian newspaper Soviet Sport.

The Russian striker has been linked as one of the strikers on Roy Hodgson’s shortlist but there will be competition from other Premier League clubs including Tottenham and Blackburn.

Now it has transpired that Spurs manager Harry Redknapp has pulled out of any potential deal and is concentrating on bringing other targets to White Hart Lane.

And Blackburn have seemingly been ruled out, with Sam Allardyce’s side considered as the least probable to bring the Stuttgart player to Ewood Park and Everton have emerged as the No.1 contenders.

With Liverpool having money to spend in January it seems a striker is on the agenda at Anfield and Pogrebnyak is top of their list.

And now David Moyes is interested in making sure he lands on Merseyside by making an offer to bring the 28-year-old to Goodison Park.

Stuttgart head coach Fredi Bobic has recently confirmed Liverpool are interested, saying: “I have been listening to rumours that Liverpool and Tottenham have their eyes on Pavel.

“It’s a fact. However, none of these clubs have been talking to us about him lately. He is a player of VfB Stuttgart,” the former Bolton striker admitted.
