Liverpool are playing close attention to the performances of Olympiacos striker Kostas Mitroglou as manager Brendan Rodgers considers adding yet more firepower to his already impressive front line.

Luis Suarez and Daniel Sturridge have been in sensational form for the Reds this season, scoring 10 goals in just the four games they have started together since the Uruguayan returned from his ten-game suspension.

However, there is little in reserve with summer signing Iago Aspas yet to impress, while Fabio Borini has been sent out on a season-long loan to Sunderland.

That has led to speculation that a new striker could arrive in January in order to add more depth to the squad and the Liverpool Echo believes that Mitroglou could be the subject of a bid in January.

The Greece international has scored 14 goals in 14 games this season to catch the eye of a number of European clubs.

Arsenal are said to hold an interest in the 25-year-old who would reportedly be available for just £7m; a relatively low fee for a striker who has excelled in the Champions League this season with three goals in as many games.

The powerful 6ft 2" striker spent some of his youth career with German outfit Borussia Mönchengladbach but has been with Olympiacos since 2007 and last season scored 20 goals in all competitions.

While Liverpool may well feel they need another striker in order to maintain their position within the top four, they will have to persuade Miroglou to leave a club that already has Champions League football.

Much may well depend on whether the Greek outfit can qualify for the knockout stages of the competition as they currently sit second in the group, level on points with Benfica but already five short of leaders Paris Saint-Germain.

Liverpool may not be in Europe this season but they have started the new campaign in excellent form and currently sit third in the league as they look to book their place in next season's Champions League.
