Liverpool are chasing Universidad de Chile striker Eduardo Vargas.

The Sunday Mirror says Reds boss Kenny Dalglish sent a top spy to watch the Universidad de Chile star in action last weekend and Vargas's camp claim they are now in talks about a January move.

Vargas is rated in the £15million class and the Kop's interest comes as a shock after splashing out on Andy Carroll and Luis Suarez in that department this year.
