Anfield boss ready to make move for Craven Cottage pair.
Skysports.com understands Fulham are in talks to sign Liverpool youngsters Lauri Dalla Valle and Alex Kacaniklic.
The Reds duo are currently in London to have talks with the Cottagers over possible moves, where they will have medicals if personal terms can be agreed.

Some sources believe that the ease with which Roy Hodgson is allowing these two impressive youngsters to move to Craven Cottage may be a sweetener to a potential double Liverpool swoop as the former Fulham boss looks to snap up Craven Cottage men Paul Konchesky and Dickson Etuhu.
Both players have been heavily linked with moves to Merseyside and now that Javier Mascherano has joined Barcelona, Hodgson has the funds needed to complete the deal.
The addition of both will helpfully fill two holes in the Liverpool squad. With Emiliano Insua almost out the door and Fabio Aurelio still not fit, Daniel Agger has been filling in at left back, the signing of Paul Konchesky will resolve that issue.
Etuhu could be brought in to give the club more strength in depth now that Mascherano has left. Whilst the Nigerian isn’t in the same league as the Argentine midfielder, he is a cut price good back up if Christian Poulsen takes Javier’s spot in the starting eleven.
