Liverpool are reportedly closing in on a deal for Zenit St Petersburg striker Salomon Rondon.
Reds boss Brendan Rodgers is looking to bolster his attack following a disappointing Premier League season last term which saw his side score just 52 goals.
Liverpool have been heavily linked with a move for Aston Villa star Christian Benteke, however The Sun reports Manchester United have moved into pole position for the £32.5m Belgian.
According to CalcioNews24, the Reds have made a bid for Rondon, however the size of the offer was not mentioned.
It is understood the Venezuelan is keen on a move to the Premier League, however it is now down to Liverpool and Zenit to agree on a transfer fee.
The 25-year-old has scored 20 goals in 36 league appearances and already has experience in Europe’s big leagues during his stint with La Liga side Malaga.
Rondon has earned 39 caps for Venezuela, scoring 13 goals.
