Liverpool are making a serious move to sign RB Salzburg striker Karim Adeyemi.
Mundo Deportivo says Liverpool are watching the newly-capped Germany international this season, though Barcelona are also interested.
And the Daily Express reports the Reds are now planning to bid for Adeyemi in January.
The Reds are ready to move after seeing Harvey Elliott suffer a dislocated ankle at Leeds United on Sunday.
There is also a belief inside Anfield that they must act quickly to see off rival interest from the likes of Barca towards the end of this season.
