Reports in Italy today suggest Liverpool will offer around £18m for Fiorentina forward Giuseppe Rossi in January.

The former Man United and Newcastle man initially blossomed after swapping England for Spain and later Italy, but suffered a serious knee injury that kept him sidelined throughout last season.

Despite scoring 16 league goals in 2013/14, Rossi has found it difficult breaking into Paulo Sousa's table-topping side this year, where Nikola Kalinic has been leading the line.
