Liverpool are being linked with a January raid on Spanish striker Fernando Llorente.

The Athletico Bilbao forward has reportedly been on the radar of English clubs in the past, with Spurs manager Harry Redknapp claimed to have held an interest in the 26-year-old.

And, now The Sunday People claims Liverpool boss Kenny Dalglish has added the player to their 'several options', with Director of Football Damien Comolli also monitoring the situation.

International teammates Pepe Reina and Maxi Rodriguez have also praised the work of the £20 million-rated La Liga hitman, according to the report, whilst Llorente admitted Liverpool were interested towards the end of 2010.

"Liverpool came to Bilbao and spoke with the club, but it was obvious they weren't going to sell me," he told Radio Marca.

The paper also claims the Reds hold an interest in Serbian starlet Lazar Markovic, but a £14 million price-tag placed on his head by Partizan Belgrade is set to end the interest of the Liverpool manager.
