Liverpool are determined not to miss out on Utrecht striker Ricky van Wolfswinkel.

Arsenal made contact with Utrecht last week about the Dutch youngster's situation leading up to the January market.

Local sources say Utrecht have alerted Liverpool to the Gunners' interest and expect the Reds to bring forward plans to move for the striker.

Indeed, Liverpool are being tipped to offer €9 million to land Van Wolfswinkel before rivals, which include Barcelona and Chelsea, come in for him.
