English Premier League (EPL) giants Liverpool are all set to strengthen their weak strikers’ position by signing the former AC Milan frontman Alexandre Pato.

Brazilian club Corinthians and Liverpool have agreed on a fee of £11 million (AU $22.9 million) for Pato and the striker looks to be heading towards Anfield to join the Red army, according to a report by Daily Star.

The 26-year-old Pato is rumoured to have rejected a contract from the cash-rich Chinese Super League.

Alexandre Pato rose to superstardom when he signed for AC Milan in 2007 and was tagged as the next striking sensation of Brazil. Pato went on to score 51 goals for the Rossoneri before being transferred to his homeland club, Corinthians. Having failed to live up to his billing, Pato was loaned out to another Brazilian outfit Sao Paolo where he found his scoring touch once again.

Meanwhile, Liverpool coach Jurgen Klopp has made his move towards the Anderlecht attacking midfielder Dennis Praet for £22.3 million (AU $46.51 million).

The 21-year-old has 23 goals under his name and has made 154 appearances for the Belgian club. He has one international cap for the Belgian national team. Should the transfer happen, Praet will line-up alongside his Belgian teammates Simon Mignolet, Christian Benteke and Divock Origi at Anfield.

Rumours around The Kop are also suggesting that Liverpool are considering the sale of their English striker Daniel Sturridge.

Sturridge, who also featured for EPL clubs Chelsea and Manchester City has been struggling with injuries and has only played for 106 minutes this season.

Klopp is reportedly frustrated with the injury problems of Sturridge and is keen on selling the Englishman in the upcoming summer transfer window.

"Daniel had some problems, not serious, but could not make a session and we had to wait a day. It is how pre-season can be. Some little things happen and we have to handle this. It is not a row of sessions and we say 'Now we are here and go..." Klopp said, according to Mirror.

The England striker has 44 goals to his name after making 72 appearances for Liverpool in his Anfield career. Despite Sturridge’s injury problems, Liverpool will look at a fee of around £25 million (AU $52 million) to sell the striker.
