Liverpool FC are eager to complete a deal to sign Borussia Monchengladbach forward Thorgan Hazard to add more depth to their attacking line up, according to a report in Italy.

Italian media website Calciomercato, as quoted by the Daily Express, is reporting that the Reds are keeping tabs on the Belgium international ahead of a potential bid.

The same article states that Liverpool FC boss Jurgen Klopp has been monitoring his situation at Borussia Monchengladbach ahead of the January transfer window.

According to the same story, Hazard has less than 18 months left to run on his current deal with the German club and the Belgian forward isn’t interested in committing his future to the club.

The Italian transfer experts add that Liverpool FC can expect to face competition from AS Roma, who are also keen on Eden Hazard’s brother after his excellent form in the German top flight.

Thorgan has netted nine goals and has made six assists in 17 games in the Bundesliga this term.

The Belgian forward has scored 30 times in 130 games in the Bundesliga during five seasons in the German top flight.

Liverpool FC are sitting at the top of the Premier League table following successive victories over Newcastle United, Wolves, Bournemouth, Burnley and Everton in their last five games.
