Anfield side is woefully short on strikers at present and Wolfsburg star could really aid forward threat.
Liverpool are thought to be looking at VfL Wolfsburg star Bas Dost to add to their forward line in January.
The Dutch striker only moved to the Bundesliga side last summer but has had a tremendously prolific start to the season, scoring six times in his twelve league appearances so far, and it is no surprise that Europe’s big guns are already eyeing up the prospect of taking him on themselves.
At 6’3″ tall, Dost would provide a rather different attacking threat to the likes of Luis Suarez and Raheem Sterling, but his game is not all about physique.
Liverpool had Andy Carroll for that anyway.
Fortunately for Dost, he is somewhat more mobile than Carroll, and a better player when it comes to build-up play. He would be a fine focal point to the team whilst the likes of Suarez, Sterling and Steven Gerrard make runs beyond him.
Dost received his first call up to the Dutch club in August, but has yet to feature for the Netherlands on the full international stage.
He does however have five goals in his nine appearances for the Under 21 team, and has a great goal record wherever he has played.
For his last club SC Heerenveen, Dost scored 47 times in 66 games, including 32 in 34 games last season to finish as Eredivisie top scorer.
Though the 23 year-old Dost only moved to Wolfsburg in the summer, they are the only team he has played for this season as his transfer from Heerenveen was in June, meaning he would be free to move in January.
If Wolfsburg were able to get an improvement on the €8m (£6.5m) they reportedly paid back then, they could be receptive to a sale.
