Liverpool continue to be linked with a shock January move for former striker Djibril Cisse.

The Panathanaikos striker is reportedly unsettled in Greece after a year and a half at the club, and was reportedly keen to rejoin Liverpool back in the summer transfer window.

Despite the change in manager at Anfield, the Reds are still thought to be keen on the player, with new boss Roy Hodgson considering bringing the former Liverpool favourite back to the club.

The Metro even claimed at the end of November that Cisse was 'set for a Liverpool return' in January, whilst reports in Europe claimed that the Merseysiders would make a substantial offer for the player.

Fresh speculation in various other media outlets suggests that the rumours will continue until the opening month of the New Year, at which point Liverpool will have to decide on their best transfer options.

Reds boss Hodgson is thought to have highlighted an attacking foil for Fernando Torres as the club's priority, with a shortlist of 'five or six' players thought to have been drawn up by the manager and his Director of Football strategy, Damien Comolli.

The former Auxerre, Marseille and Sunderland striker believes he has 'unfinished' business at Anfield following a couple of severe injuries during his time at the club, although he was part of the Champions League winning side in 2005.

Fulham could provide Premier League competition for the player's signature, although the old Liverpool connection would make them a favourite destination for the player should they decide to spend some of NESV's money the 29-year-old French international.
