Liverpool representatives have reportedly met with PSV Eindhoven to discuss a deal for Ola Toivonen, according to reports.
The Swedish international forward was heavily linked with an Anfield move back in the summer, and was again thought to be on the radar of the Merseysiders in January.
Newcastle United and Tottenham Hotspur have also taken an interest in the past, according to reports, but it's Liverpool who are now thought to be in pole position to land the player.
The Metro claims Liverpool are looking to 'thrash out a deal' for the 24-year-old, who can also play in an attacking midfield position.
Toivonen began his career with Degerfors before moving to Örgryte and then Malmo. Two years later, a transfer fee in the region of €4.5 million was paid by the Eredivisie side to bring the player to Holland, and the striker has flourished at the Phillips Stadium.
With 13 goals so far this season, the player's stock continues to rise and the rumours have re-surfaced that the Reds are once again interested in a move.
Kenny Dalglish has hinted at a number of personnel changes at Liverpool this summer, with another striker thought to be on the agenda despite spending in excess of £55 million on Andy Carroll and Luis Suarez in the last transfer window.
Whilst a left back and winger are the reported priority, Fenway Sports Group have vowed to back the Liverpool boss financially should he stay on permanently and Toivonen could be one of the players on the wishlist.
