Lyon boss Gerard Houllier has confirmed 23-year-old Liverpool striker Milan Baros is one of his transfer targets.
Houllier signed the Czech Republic star in December 2001 while in charge of the Reds and watched him on Wednesday in a World Cup qualifier against Macedonia.
The Frenchman is also eyeing Czech and Borussia Dortmund player Tomas Rosicky.
"We are interested in Milan Baros and Tomas Rosicky who are among the top European players in their positions," Houllier told a Czech newspaper.
Houllier is reported to have left the Czech Republic's convincing win before Baros scored the last of his country's goals in a 6-1 win.
He added: "I also wanted to say hello to Vladimir Smicer and congratulate him and Milan (Baros) on their win in the Champions League."
Houllier recently took over as manager of French champions Lyon and succeeded Paul le Guen.
