Liverpool are said to be in negotiations with Borussia Dortmund over a potential move to sign Ciro Immobile, according to reports from the Metro.
The 25-year-old only completed his switch from Serie A side Torino in the summer following an impressive season, in which he scored 22 goals in 33 appearances.
Reds manager Brendan Rodgers is in the market for a new striker after summer arrivals Mario Balotelli and Rickie Lambert struggled to find any sort of form.
Despite a great scoring season prior to his switch to Germany, Immobile is yet to replicate his previous goalscoring feats.
The Italy international has only scored three league goals in 19 matches for his club and could be sold, as Dortmund are already expecting a number of stars to follow manager Jurgen Klopp towards the exit door.
Rodgers will have the chance to sign him for a cut-price deal given his huge drop in form, but will also be hoping to avoid any more attacking setbacks.
