Report: Liverpool interested in Slovenia striker Andraz Sporar

Liverpool are interested in signing Olimpija Ljubljana forward Andraz Sporar in the January transfer window, as per the Daily Mail.

A 21-year-old striker who has been with Olimpija since 2012, Sporar caught the eye playing for Slovenia’s U21 side against Serbia U21s this week in front of watching Liverpool scouts, as per the report.

The highly-regarded prospect, who can feature on the right wing if required, has scored 15 goals in as many games in the league this season and Liverpool are seeking to secure the no.10 attackers services as quickly as possible before other clubs make a move, the report claims.

Liverpool already have several strikers on their books, with manager Jurgen Klopp able to call upon the likes of Christian Benteke, Daniel Sturridge and Divock Origi, whilst Danny Ings is out for the season through injury.

Sporar, though, would provide Klopp with an additional option, although it remains to be seen how he would adapt to the rigours of the Premier League.

Liverpool, who have created 146 chances in the Premier League this season, travel to face league leaders Manchester City on Saturday evening, with Klopp’s side eager to bounce back from their disappointing defeat to Crystal Palace earlier this month.

That loss aside, Klopp has fared rather well since taking charge, with the German coach having guided his side to victory against Chelsea. He will be wary, however, that there is still much work for him to do in order to restore the club to being a prominent force in English football.

Liverpool have scored 13 goals in the Premier League this season.
