Christian Atsu is the latest name linked with signing for Liverpool.

Liverpool are in 'advanced talks' to sign Christian Atsu, according to The Guardian - another winger to add to the club's attacking threats.

The Porto man could be bought for as little as £3 million due to his contract expiring next summer, a potential snip for the Reds.

So what do they need to know about the man who could be heading to Anfield?

Here are five facts about Atsu...

2) He played 28 games for Porto this season in all competitions, scoring one goal and providing one assist.

3) The man who handed him his debut was Andre Villas-Boas, who has also been linked with bringing him to Tottenham.

4) He has eight international caps for Ghana, including six at the 2013 African Nations Cup, with two goals to his name.
