RB Leipzig's versatile forward Emil Forsberg has emerged as a transfer target for Liverpool after their advances for Dortmund's Christian Pulisic were rebuffed.

Forsberg, who tops the Bundesliga's assists table this season with eight, could come in as attacking cover with Sadio Mane away at the African Cup of Nations this month and fresh injury concerns over Daniel Sturridge.

The 25-year-old Swede, who has played 24 times for his country, would set Liverpool back £20m, according to The Mirror.

Quincy Promes has been urged by his compatriot Giorginio Wijnaldum to join him at Anfield as rumours of a £20m deal for midfielder gather pace.

The 24-year-old Dutchman has played 72 league games for Spartak Moscow, scoring 37 goals and making 17 assists.

After Liverpool's win over Manchester City on Sunday, Wijnaldum said: "I think Quincy knows how great Liverpool is, I knew it before I came here. Of course I want him to come to Liverpool because I know he is a good player and also a good person who can help the team."

Jurgen Klopp is apparently interested in 22-year-old Benfica and Mexico striker Raul Jimenez, however, with a £22m move being lined up, according to Squawka.
