Reports in the Guardian explain that Pardew has inquired about the availability of the Liverpool forward, who he signed for Southampton from Bristol Rovers in 2009, but faces a battle to secure his signature.

According to the source, the Reds are keen to retain Lambert despite his difficult start at Anfield, but whether Pardew will drop his interest in the 32-year-old remains to be seen.

The striker, who has made just ten starts this season, has had to adjust from a regular starting role to a substitutes’ berth since his £4.5m summer move from Southampton and recently admitted that was the wrong mindset with which to start his Liverpool career.

Lambert has only scored twice in all competitions, and has rarely been included – even as a substitute – in Brendan Rodgers’ new look 3-4-3 formation. He started Monday’s game with AFC Wimbledon, but struggled to make an impact on the game.
