Liverpool are reportedly considering a move for CSKA Moscow striker Seydou Doumbia, after the appointment of Kenny Dalglish's successor.

The 24-year-old Ivorian scored 33 goals in 41 appearances for his current employers last season, and has also been linked with a transfer window move to Chelsea.

Manchester United, Tottenham and Napoli have also been named as potential suitors for Doumbia, but it is Liverpool who appear to be ready to formalise their interest.

According to the Daily Mail, the unveiling of a new manager could be swiftly followed by a bid for Doumbia, who has a release clause of £26 million written into his contract.

Doumbia is likely to be one of several strikers on the radar of Liverpool this summer, as Reds owners Fenway Sports Group look to make-up for the profligacy in front of goal last season.

Liverpool mustered fewer goals in the league than they had for two decades, and goalscoring reinforcements will surely be a summer priority for the next manager.
