Raheem Sterling is on Swansea City's radar as the Welsh club are keen on bringing the Liverpool winger on loan in this transfer window, according to the Daily Mirror.

Swansea are keen on the winger as Liverpool are pursuing the signature of Mohamed Salah. Reports have stated that the Egyptian winger is close to making a switch to Merseyside from Swiss club FC Basel for a fee of £7m.

Michael Laudrup is looking to bolster his attacking options and considers Sterling as an ideal attacking option to boost his side's chances of achieving a top half finish in the league. The Swans lie 13th in the league table with 21 points after 20 matches, just four points off the relegation zone.

The former Barcelona and Real Madrid star is currently without Nathan Dyer and Michu whose attacking prowess had helped his side win the Capital One Cup last campaign.

The 19-year-old continues to earn plaudits with his performances for the Reds this season featuring 15 times, scoring three goals and setting up two for his teammates in the league this season.

Sterling broke into the Liverpool first-team during the last season and went on to feature in 24 league matches. The youngster also went on to make his international debut for England in November 2012.

If Sterling does make a temporary move to the Liberty Stadium, he will line-up alongside his compatriot and former Liverpool player Jonjo Shelvey.

Liverpool's attacking options are currently minimal with only two fit strikers in Luis Suarez and Iago Aspas. The Spaniard has so far failed to impress and seal a place in the starting line-up following his arrival from Celta Vigo in the summer.

The Merseyside club are currently fourth in the Premier League table after 20 matches and Rodgers will be looking to add to quality to the squad during this transfer window.

The Northern Irishman will be hoping to utilize all the firepower available at his disposal once Daniel Sturridge is fit for first-team action as the 40-year-old aims to guide his side to a top four finish in the league.
