Liverpool target Gokhan Inler is set to leave Udinese - potentially in January.
The 26-year-old Swiss international holding midfielder has been monitored by a number of clubs after several consistent seasons in Serie 'A', and Liverpool boss Roy Hodgson is thought to be one of the parties monitoring the player.
Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is also thought to be keen on the player, and Inler's agent confirmed that he would leave the Zebrette at some stage.
“Gokhan will certainly change club in June, but it is not out of the question that it could happen in January. The lad has many offers from Spain and England," said Dino Lamberti.
Italian clubs are also thought to be keen on the player, but Liverpool have highlighted the player as a starter following the disappointing impact made by Christian Poulsen at Anfield.
The arrival of NESV as the new owners on Merseyside has led to speculation that Liverpool will make several transfer moves in January, and Inler is just one midfielder linked with an Anfield switch.
An attacking foil for Fernando Torres is thought to be the priority for Hodgson, although the former Fulham chief is thought to have a wish list of 'five or six' players at Liverpool.
The Italian side are thought to have valued the player in the region of €8.5 million, although Liverpool would certainly face stiff competition from a number of clubs if they wish to secure the player's signature in January.
