The 24-year-old midfielder has found the net 12 times this season and was watched by Liverpool's top scout, Steve Hitchen, according to the Daily Mirror.

Despite splashing 35million on striker Andy Carroll, Liverpool have struggled in front of goal and Elm could help alleviate the burden on the forwards.

He has made 22 appearances for his country and is expected to cost around 7m.
