Liverpool set to make £9.5m offer to sign Argentine forward

Liverpool are ready to table a £9.5million offer to sign River Plate star Lucas Alario as manager Jurgen Klopp prepares to overhaul his squad, The Sun reports.

The 23-year-old has emerged as a possible target for the Reds amid doubts over the future of attacking pair Daniel Sturridge and Christian Benteke.

Sturridge has been struggling with multiple injuries over the past year as Klopp is still unsure over his consistency on a long-term basis.

Benteke is now being linked with an exit after he revealed his frustrations at being given a limited role since his arrival from Aston Villa in the summer.

Klopp is ready to make a host of changes to his squad when the transfer window reopens as he hopes to push for a top four spot next season.

His side are currently sitting ninth on the Premier League table, but are only seven points away from Manchester City in fourth, with nine matches still to be played.
