The 25 year old forward has been offered a lucrative new deal by his Loftus Road employers but as yet has not put pen to paper on a £60k a week contract and this has alerted Liverpool and Tottenham.

The former Swindon Town man racked up 20 goals in his debut season in west London, helping QPR to promotion from the Championship, and has shown this term that he is more than capable of making an impact in the Premier League.

Austin has scored six goals in 11 starts for Harry Redknapp’s struggling side and could be tempted by a move to Anfield.

Rodgers has seen summer signings Rickie Lambert and Mario Balotelli manage just one Premier League goal between them this term and presumably has the financial backing to make a good offer for Austin, who cost QPR £4m in August 2013.
