Liverpool have become the latest club to register their interest in CSKA Moscow striker Fedor Chalov, reports claim.
The 21-year-old won the Golden Boot in the Russian top flight last season with 15 goals in 30 games.
A host of top clubs, including Manchester United and Arsenal, are thought to be in the race for Chalov’s signature.
And according to the Daily Mirror, Liverpool have joined the hunt as they look to bolster their attacking options ahead of next season.
However, the Premier League trio face stiff competition from abroad, with German interest coming from Bayern Munich, Borussia Dortmund and RB Leipzig.
