Liverpool are reportedly ready to step up their pursuit of Charles N'Zogbia after Roy Hodgson went to watch the Wigan winger at close-quarters.

According to Click Lancashire, Hodgson was at the DW Stadium on Saturday and was wowed by N'Zogbia's man-of-the-match performance in the 2-2 draw with Stoke.

It's not the first time Liverpool representatives have been to watch the 24-year-old Frenchman, with three Anfield scouts - including chief talent-spotter Eduardo Macia - allegedly deployed to monitor N'Zogbia during Wigan's Carling Cup victory against Swansea in October.

N'Zogbia - who is valued at around £9 million - has made no secret of his desire to leave Wigan for a more high-profile club, which is likely to work in Liverpool's favour should they try to bring him to Anfield in the New Year.

Liverpool are understood to be in the market for attacking reinforcements after Hodgson admitted they rely too heavily on the goalscoring of Anfield hero Fernando Torres.

Belgian sensation Eden Hazard and Bolton hotshot Johan Elmander have also been heavily linked with January moves to Anfield as Liverpool look to bolster their attacking options.
