Liverpool are preparing  a £7million bid in an attempt to land Olympiakos striker Kostas Mitroglou, reports the Daily Mirror.

Brendan Rodger sent scouts to watch the 25-year-old in the recent World Cup play-off between Greece and Romania.

After scoring three goals over the two legs, Liverpool's head of recruitment Dave Fellows and chief scout Barry Hunter were suitably impressed with Mitroglou's performance.

Their recommendation follows similar reports from Anfield’s Head of Performance and Analysis Michael Edwards, who has worked with the club's scouts over Mitrglou's last six matches to formulate an intricate report.

Rodgers has seen enough to be convinced that the player is worth signing, especially as he will be available for a relatively cheap sum.

Mitrglou will, however, be brought to Anfield as back up for their current star strikers Luis Suarez and Daniel Sturridge, who have formed a formidable partnership this season.

Despite possessing the joint top scorers in the Premier League, the depth up front is still of some concern for Rodgers and Mitroglou can solve that problem.

Rodgers' main problem now is trying to fend off competition from Premier League rivals Arsenal, who have been heavily linked with a bid themselves.

Arsene Wenger is trying to find back up for Olivier Giroud as his current second choice striker, Nicklas Bendtner, has declared his desire to leave the Emirates.

However, with Mitrglou cup-tied from European competition, Arsenal's pulling power of Champions League football is negated, giving Liverpool hope of snatching the Greek star.

Mitroglou, who has scored 14 goals in 10 league games this season, has also been linked with Inter Milan.
