Liverpool are intensifying their pursuit of Borussia Dortmund winger Kevin Grosskreutz.

The Sun says Kop spies watched the £8million-rated wideman help Borussia to a stunning 4-1 Champions League win at Ajax in midweek.

The winger, who is under contract until 2014, is also a pal of Anfield midfielder Nuri Sahin - his former Dortmund team-mate.

Grosskreutz said: "The Premier League will be my first choice. I really like English football."
