Manchester City boss Sven Goran Eriksson will move for Liverpool striker Peter Crouch in January.

The Mail on Sunday says Eriksson's first big target of the January transfer window will be Peter Crouch, a deal that would depend on whether or not his club, Liverpool, qualify for the knockout stages of the Champions League.

Eriksson is a huge admirer of the 6ft 7in striker, having given him his first England cap.
