Brendan Rodgers is looking to sign a striker in January.
Fernando Llorente appears to be top of the wanted list, according to reports coming out of Spain.
The 27-year-old Spanish international has scored over 20 times in each of the last three seasons for Athletico Bilbao and will be able to talk to other clubs in January if he doesn't extend his contract which expires at the end of the season.
“I cannot guarantee that I will still be at Athletic in 2013,” he said. “In January I am free to talk and I will consider all my options.”
