Liverpool's transfer plans for next season are reportedly set to be centred around a move for Juventus star Alvaro Morata.

Morata, 22, joined the Serie A giants from Real Madrid last summer, but has struck just six times this season for his new side.

And according to reports in Spain, Liverpool are keen to make the Spaniard their marquee signing for the 2015-16 campaign.

The Reds' front-line has improved in recent weeks thanks to the return of Daniel Sturridge, but Brendan Rodgers is thought to be keen to further boost his attacking options to avoid being caught short should Sturridge pick up another injury.

A stumbling block for the Reds could be the £25million buy-back clause Madrid ensured was inserted into his Juventus contract, while Arsenal are also thought to be interested in the attacker's services.
