Utrecht striker Ricky van Wolfswinkel is back on Roy Hodgson’s transfer wishlist despite being injured, according to reports.

The Dutch striker has 11 goals in 18 games in the Eredivisie for a mid table side and eight more in 12 cup and European games.

Van Wolfswinkel, though, endured a torrid game at Anfield last week playing as the lone front man and being marked out of the game then sustaining a broken collarbone in an innocuous looking challenge.

The injury is likely to keep him out until after the January transfer window so Liverpool will have to either take a calculated gamble or wait until the summer.

Hodgson has made a striker his top priority next month in order to give Fernando Torres some much needed respite.

The Liverpool board are unlikely to sanction the £9 million signing if he fails his medical but Tuttomercato are claiming they will offer that amount nonetheless.

The 21-year-old has been linked with a switch to Anfield since the summer but no move materialised and Liverpool have struggled for goals so far thgis season.

Other strikers to have been linked with Liverpool include Mario Gomez, Carlton Cole and Emmanuel Adebayor.
