Liverpool are lining up a bargain move for Palermo striker Abel Hernandez ahead of the opening of the January transfer window.
Reds boss Brendan Rodgers has already confessed he didn't do all the business he wanted to during the summer, and he is currently assessing his options.
Another forward remains a priority, and Liverpool are now looking at bringing in powerful hitman Hernandez from Palermo.
The 23-year-old is highly rated but is unhappy with life in Italy, and almost secured a switch to Arsenal on transfer deadline day, only for the deal to collapse at the last minute.
Liverpool though believe they could get him for around £4million in January.
A fast, strong and powerful forward who can also play out wide, Hernandez is contracted to Palermo but has previously admitted his desire to move to the Premier League.
