Spanish newspaper Marca claims that Liverpool have made an attempt to sign free agent Ivan Klasnic.
The Croatian striker has been a free agent since his contract at Bolton expired in June and he has been searching for a new club since.
Being out of contract, the 32-year-old is free to sign for a new club despite the fact that the summer transfer window is now closed.
Spanish newspaper Marca understands that the player was on the verge of joining Deportivo La Coruna, only for Liverpool to try and hijack their bid for the veteran forward.
The Reds allowed striker Andy Carroll to join West Ham as they believed they would sign Clint Dempsey on transfer deadline day, but the USA forward spoilt their plans by option to join Tottenham instead.
The Premier League outfit now have no choice but to pursue players who are out of contract, which is why they are very keen on Ivan Klasnic.
The Croat has three years of Premier League experience behind him, and has scored 20 goals in 78 league appearances for the Trotters.
During the 2010/2011 season, Klasnic made 22 substitute appearances for the club, while failing to start a single Premier League game.
