Liverpool are preparing a bid for Sporting Lisbon striker Ricky van Wolfswinkel.

A Bola says Liverpool will make a £15 million bid for the Dutchman, who was watched by Reds scouts on Monday night as he hit the winner against Benfica.

Tottenham, Manchester United and Newcastle United are also among interested clubs, with it emerging this week that Spurs held transfer talks with Benfica officials on Monday afternoon before the game.
