Reds eyeing Netherlands stars.
Liverpool have made Dutch duo Klaas-Jan Huntelaar and Wesley Sneijder their top targets for the January transfer window, fanatix understands.
Reds boss Brendan Rodgers has reportedly told the club’s board that his squad is not far short of mounting a serious challenge on the Premier League top four and believes that the Dutch duo can make the difference.
Huntelaar, 29, is stalling over signing a new deal at Schalke 04 and is free to talk to suitors in January.
The goal-machine, who has netted 40 times in just over 60 Bundesliga appearances, is wanted by a number of clubs across Europe but it is thought the Reds have already been in touch with the former Real Madrid striker’s agent and are hopefully of winning the race for the former Real Madrid striker’s signature.
An injury to summer signing Fabio Borini has left Rodgers desperately short of attacking options, with Luis Suarez currently the only fit senior striker at the Northern Irishman’s disposal.
The Anfield cub are also interested in Huntelaar’s compatriot Sneijder it has emerged. The 29-year-old has long been tracked by Manchester United and Man City but Liverpool are plotting an audacious £18m bid to bring the Inter Milan captain to Merseyside in January.
Sneijder has constantly reiterated his commitment to Inter but would reportedly consider any serious offer from the Premier League.
