Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers is said to be entering talks with the agent of Spartak Moscow striker Yura Movsisyan this weekend with the view of making a move for him on Monday, caughtoffside.com reports.
The report says Rodgers has secretly been having the 26-year-old watched over the course of the season and has been impressed with his form after bagging 20 goals in just 35 matches for Spartak over the last 18 months.
Movsisyan has also been impressing on the international stage with Armenia, too, and it is there that Rodgers first noticed him while scouting Henrikh Mkhitaryan last summer.
However, Rodgers is not the only one showing an interest in landing his services as a number of fellow Premier League and Bundesliga clubs are keen, too.
The striker is expected to lead the line for Armenia on Friday in a friendly against Germany in Mainz, and there will be a significant number of scouts from those interested parties in attendance.
