Liverpool are ready to take a gamble on Barcelona striker Bojan Krkic.

The Mirror says Liverpool are confident landing the 23 year-old for a bargain basement £5 million.

Scouts have watched him play on loan at Ajax several times in recent weeks, with an Anfield representative running the rule during the Dutch club's surprise Europa League defeat by Salzburg last Thursday.

Asked about his plans, Krkic confessed: "We'll see about my future, there are still two months of the season to go before any decisions have to be made."
