Liverpool are considering a move for South Korean international Ki Sung-Yueng, according to reports.

The 22-year-old has emerged on the Reds radar after a deal to bring Charlie Adam to the club hit the buffers late last week, and talkSPORT claims Kenny Dalglish is now preparing to swoop for the midfielder.

Capped 38 times despite his young age, Yueng moved to Celtic in January 2010 from FC Seoul after the two clubs agreed a deal the previous summer. He's since become an integral part of Neil Lennon's side at Parkhead, and scored the opening goal for the Bhoys in their 3-0 Scottish Cup win last month.

Despite bringing Jordan Henderson to Anfield for £20 million, Liverpool are still thought to be in the market for another central midfielder.

As well as Adam, Yann M'Vila and Blaise Matuidi have also been linked with moves to Merseyside, with Liverpool director of football Damien Comolli believed to be an admirer of the French pair.

Standard Chartered, chief sponsors at Liverpool, are keen for the club to invest in the Asian market though, with a move which could lead to several opportunities in the lucrative continent.


With that in mind, talkSPORT claims that Liverpool are also monitoring Ji Dong-Won, a compatriot of Yueng who has been heavily linked with a move to Sunderland.

However, the Reds are keen to strengthen in the striking department, and may consider a move for the player as back-up for Andy Carroll and Luis Suarez in the Liverpool frontline.
