Liverpool are reportedly after Brazilian striker Kleber as they step up their pursuit of a new striker.

According to the Daily Mail, the Reds are set to re-enter the race for the Palmeiras hotshot - who is also wanted by Everton - after previously showing an interest in his signature during Rafa Benitez's tenure.

"I have a proposal from Liverpool for 7 million euros. We are analysing [it]" Kleber said at the time.

Liverpool boss Roy Hodgson has made no secret of his desire to add more potency to his Anfield attack after admitting that Liverpool rely too heavily on Kop hero Fernando Torres.

And it would appear Hodgson has identified £6 million-rated Kleber as a potential target to take the goalscoring burden away from Liverpool star Torres.

The former Brazil under 20 star has an eye-catching scoring record; notching an impressive 28 times in 77 appearances during a spell with Dynamo Kiev, while he has 13 goals in 18 games for his current employers.

Kleber certainly has the ability to add an extra dimension to the Liverpool attack and his hard working nature and flamboyant attitude to win over the Anfield faithful.

Liverpool have also been linked with Roma ace Mirko Vucinic and Bolton hitman Johan Elmander as they look to bring more attacking options to Anfield in January.
