Liverpool plotting move for CL striker, Klopp is concerned by attacking options in early 2017

Liverpool are reportedly scouting striker Sardar Azmoun ahead of the January transfer window, with the Reds mulling over a move.

Azmoun joined FC Rostov in the summer of 2015, following an initial short-term loan spell with the Russian Premier League side.

The 21-year-old has netted only 12 goals in 44 league appearances for Rostov, but has certainly shone in the Champions League this season.

Indeed, he struck against 2015/16 finalists Atletico Madrid in a tight 2-1 defeat last week, after scoring in qualifying ties against both Ajax and Anderlecht this summer.

Now, he has emerged as a target for in-form Liverpool, according to the Guardian.

The report suggests that manager Jurgen Klopp is worried about his attacking options, or lack thereof, in early 2017, as Sadio Mane is set to represent Senegal at the Africa Cup of Nations.

Meanwhile, Danny Ings has been ruled out with a long-term injury, supposedly prompting the Merseyside giants to plot a transfer for Azmoun.

Liverpool’s current front-line has been widely hailed this season, having led the side to the top of the Premier League with eight wins in 11 fixtures.
