Anderlecht are still on the trail of Liverpool attacker Anthony Le Tallec.

The French youngster faces an uncertain future at Anfield after spending the first half of last season on loan at St Etienne.

He returned to Merseyside to play a handful of games under Rafa Benitez but could be loaned out again next term.

Belgian outfit Anderlecht hold an interest in the promising 20-year-old and have been contacted by Le Tallec's agent.

The club are considering an offer for Le Tallec and admit they are starting to rethink their transfer policy.

"If we can play the role of being a step between a small league and the bigger leagues, then Anderlecht can bring young, talented players to Belgium," said manager Herman Van Holsbeeck.

"We are following a Brazilian from Corinthians, for example. The moment has come when we have to take risks, like PSV do with Brazilians and Argentines.

"It's always a question of whether a player can make the breakthrough. That's the risk."

Another target for Anderlecht is Liberia international Dioh Williams who has enjoyed an impressive debut season in Sweden with Hacken.

Williams' agent Amor Sadki told Sportbladet: "Anderlecht have said they are ready to pay ‚é¼1 million for him.

"There are also other clubs who are seriously interested."

But Hacken insist their priority is to keep hold of Williams rather than cash in on the African striker.

Hacken's sports director Carl Fhager said: "We have discussed with Amor but we have not received any serious offer from any club.

"We are in bigger need of good players than money."
