Liverpool are weighing up a move for French hotshot Nolan Roux.
Kenny Dalglish is discussing transfer targets with director of football Damien Comolli and Roux is on his radar.
Comolli has extensive contacts in French football and is keen on speaking to Stade Brest about Roux.
The 23-year-old, who would replace fellow French striker David Ngog at Anfield, has scored 21 goals in 53 league games for Brest and is contracted to the club until 2013.


Liverpool boss Kenny Dalglish is looking to add strength in depth to his Anfield squad, as well as making sweeping changes to his Anfield squad and with that in mind a move for impressive Frenchman Nolan Roux may be a wise one.

Former PSG man David N’Gog has never really got going and has always looked out of depth and three seasons at the club the 22 year old may well be on his way and is strongly linked with a move to Sunderland, after he was unsuccessfully employed as part of an original offer for Jordan Henderson, which Steve Bruce turned down in preference for a full cash sum for the England midfielder.

23 year old Brest striker Roux is a former French Under 21 international who netted twice on his only apperances for the side. His goals help his side into Ligue 1 the season before last and help keep the Brittany based side in the French top tier last term.

Whilst clearly he lacks top level experience there appears to be enough potential to have gotten Comolli’s interest, with the French scouting expert being strongly linked to the national side’s various youth and senior teams.

Brest are thought to want around £7m for Roux and it may well be the fee that becomes the sticking point. Liverpool’s first choice strike pairing is of course Luis Suarez and Andy Carroll and clearly the Merseyside club can call upon Dutchman Dirk Kuyt to revert back to his more natural position if back up is needed.
