Liverpool and Tottenham are both reportedly interested in making surprise January moves for Republic of Ireland international striker Shane Long, according to the Irish Daily Star (Through the Independent).

The Premier League duo, who currently sit ninth and fourth in the standings respectively, are monitoring the Southampton striker’s form over the course of the January transfer window with intent.

The 28-year-old, who has 58 international caps for his country, has scored eight goals in 19 appearances in all competitions for Ronald Koeman’s Saints this season.

Long; who arrived at St Mary’s Stadium from Hull City in a deal worth a reported £12m back in August 2014, is wanted by Reds boss Jurgen Klopp due to their rising injury list to attacking players this term, plus Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino as cover for England international Harry Kane.
