Liverpool are keeping tabs on Oscar Wendt and Behrang Safari, according to a club scout.
Jakob Friis-Hansen - Liverpool's Scandinavian scout - is quoted in the Danish media explaining that he has been monitoring the defenders with a view to Roy Hodgson making a January swoop for the pair.
"We are keeping a good eye on Oscar…Oscar Wendt does a great job, but he must play at a high level every week," Friis-Hansen said. "In Denmark there are just a few high-quality games."
Wendt is a Sweden international who currently plies his trade as a left-back with FC Copenhagen - who were once managed by Hodgson - and could be available on a free transfer if Liverpool wait until the summer to make their move.
Safari is also a Swedish left-sided defender who currently competes with Wendt for a starting berth in the Sweden national team, and could be snapped up by Liverpool from Basel for around £3 million.
Despite both players occupying the same position, Hodgson is thought to be keen to add both to his squad as he looks to bolster his defensive options.
The Liverpool boss will no doubt be banking on using his vast contacts in Scandinavian football to seal the signatures of the Swedish duo who are both reportedly excited by the prospect of moving to Anfield.
