Liverpool are reportedly chasing PSV winger Dries Mertens and planning a £10m move in January.

Liverpool are reportedly lining up a £10m bid for PSV Eindhoven winger Dries Mertens in the January transfer window.

Brendan Rodgers is said to view the Belgian midfielder as the perfect signing for his side.

The Merseyside club are currently lacking attacking options after loaning Andy Carroll to West Ham United and selling Dirk Kuyt in the summer. It is thought that Mertens could add some much-needed firepower at Anfield.

Mertens, who joined PSV from FC Utrecht in 2011, is a creative outlet for the Dutch side, having notched six assists and four goals in just seven games in the Eredivisie.

It is rumoured that Kenny Dalglish wanted to sign Mertens before he was sacked in the summer. Now, it seems that Rodgers is ready to continue the pursuit.

Mertens has earned 12 caps for Belgium since making his debut in 2011.
