AC Milan are keeping track of Liverpool attacking duo Daniel Sturridge and Divock Origi ahead of the January transfer window.

According to Calcio Mercato, Serie A giants have an eye on them both as they evaluate their options when the transfer window will be re-opened in January.

The report suggested that AC Milan are sweating over a deal for Swedish football legend Zlatan Ibrahimovic and could move for either Origi or Sturridge as an alternative option.

AC Milan are also considering moves for Vincent Jansson and Alexandre Pato and, as they look to bolster their options upfront.

Calcio Mercato do not state how open the Merseyside Reds would be to letting either depart, with them both starting against Premier League outsiders Burnley earlier this week.

Origi scored the winning goal for the Reds against their bitter rivals Everton last weekend, whilst Sturridge found back of the net some important minutes earlier in the season.

Sturridge has found back of the net 50 times in 107 Premier League matches for the Reds since joining  them from Chelsea in 2012

Meanwhile, Chinese Super League team Guangzhou Evergrande are ready to rival Liverpool and Arsenal in their pursuit for Barcelona winger Malcolm.

The Barcelona forward is reportedly attracting interest from a top team across Europe ahead of the upcoming transfer window in January, with the young Brazilian talent having not settled at Nou Camp.
