Liverpool are watching Anzhi striker Lacina Traore.

The Mirror says Traore scored an eyecatching goal against Liverpool in last week's Europa League clash - and the Anfield club will be monitoring the lad for the rest of the season ahead of money talk... according to the player's agent.

Traore's representative Dimitri Seluk reportedly said: "In addition to Liverpool, the list of clubs that have applied to purchase Traore includes Udinese.

"At the moment, Lacina is content with his position at Anzhi. He recently signed a new contract until 2016.

"Traore has no need to hurry. We'll go ahead and first let him get experience."
