Since he took over in January, one of Kenny Dalglish's primary goals has been to boost his midfield corps, bringing in most notably Charlie Adam, Stewart Downing and Jordan Henderson.

That said, his midfield, especially the wings, has been one of the weakest points of the squad so far this season. That appears to have led to Dalglish renewing his interest in bringing in new midfielders.

According to The Daily Mail, the Scot is set to make a move for 22-year-old German winger Marko Marin. 

Marin broke through on the world stage with Werder Bremen in 2009, and has since established himself as an elite young player. The diminutive attacking player has been chased by several of Europe's top clubs for a while, but no team has made a significant run at securing his signature just yet.

Marin's versatility would make him a valuable player at Anfield. He has spent time all over the midfield for Bremen, most often on the left wing.

Though Liverpool did sign Downing to solve their left wing problems this past transfer window, Marin would be able to move to the right side with relative ease.

It wouldn't at all be surprising to see Dalglish make a move for the youngster in January. He would likely cost the Reds upwards of £20 million.
