Liverpool launching major bid for FC Twente star Ruiz

Liverpool are ready to offer £15 million for FC Twente star Bryan Ruiz.

The Sunday Mirror says Reds' boss Roy Hodgson could lose Dirk Kuyt to Inter Milan this week.

So he has targeted Costa Rican striker Ruiz after seeing him hit 24 goals in 35 games to help FC Twente become Dutch champions for the first time last season.

Steve McClaren brought the 25-year-old to Holland last summer for £3.5m from Belgian club Ghent.

Hodgson is looking for another player in the Kuyt mould. Ruiz can lead the attack, play just behind the most advanced striker and operate on either flank.
