Liverpool are reportedly leading the chase to sign Everton contract rebel Steven Pienaar and are ready to make an offer for the South African international in January. Roy Hodgson is drawing up a list of transfer targets and is thought to be ready to offer around £4m for the former Ajax man who is out of contract in the summer.

The talented attack minded midfielder has refused to sign a new deal with the Toffees and David Moyes has admitted the club will prefer to offload the 28 year old in January rather than lose him for nothing in the summer and Hodgson is thought to be very keen on the adaptable Everton man.

The likes of Tottenham, Bayern Munich and Ajax are all said to be interested in Pienaar but the short move to Anfield is apparently one he is keen on making. Roy Hodgson is said to be hopeful of a significant transfer war chest from new owners NESV and given that the price for the South African playmaker is relatively cheap, such a move would appear to make a great deal of sense.

Pienaar is now in his fourth season in the Premier League and he has proved to be a very potent attacking weapon where his ability to provide the ammunition for teammates as well as his tendency to score crucial goals have made him a much sought after purchase.
