Liverpool starlet target tracked by rivals

Published Add your comment

Liverpool target Armin Bacinovic is also on the radar of Chelsea, according to reports.

The Slovenian international has impressed this season after a string of impressive performances in Serie 'A', and Liverpool boss Roy Hodgson was thought to be considering a January bid.

However, talkSPORT now claim that Chelsea have taken an interest in the 21-year-old, sending scouts to watch the players in a recent match against Cesena.

Carlo Ancelotti is considering challenging Liverpool for the player's signature when the transfer window re-opens in the opening month of 2011, but the Reds are thought to be willing to put up a fight for the player.

The Liverpool boss has been promised a transfer war chest from new owners NESV, and the former Fulham boss is thought to have around £35 million at his disposal in January.

Landing Bacinovic ahead of the Blues would be a major coup for the Merseyside outfit as they look to get back on track in the Premier League, and the player is thought to be on a Liverpool wishlist that consists of 'five or six' players.
