Liverpool eye hotshot Serie A striker

Liverpool are readying a summer move for Fiorentina striker Khouma Babacar according to Calciomercato, with the Reds set to bolster their attacking options ahead of next season.

Jurgen Klopp will be given free reign to sculpt the Anfield playing contingent as he sees fit this summer and there are expected to be a lot of comings and goings at the Merseyside club.

In attack, question marks remain over the futures of Daniel Sturridge and Christian Benteke, with neither in their best form this season and not thought to have won the German trainer over.

Babacar has been linked with a move to a number of Premier League clubs over the years and continues to impress at the Stadio Artemio Franchi.

The Senegal international is not an automatic first choice with the Viola but the 23-year-old continues to show glimpses of power and pace that has impressed Liverpool scouts.

Liverpool are reported keen to land the striker for a bargain price of less than £5 million.
