Liverpool have been linked with a move for AC Milan midfielder Kevin-Prince Boateng.
According to Italian website, calcionews24.com, the Ghanian is being tracked by the Merseyside club and Sportingo reports that the Reds 'will make' a bid for his services.
The 23-year-old moved to Genoa from Portsmouth and was immediately loaned out to AC Milan. He is now co-owned by both Italian clubs and has put in a number of impressive displays for Milan this season.
However, Liverpool are reportedly planning an attempt to prise him away from Serie A, with a an potential offer of £10 million mooted for his services.
Boateng has plenty of Barclays Premier League experience, having played for Pompey and Spurs, so will no doubt be able to adapt quickly should he seal a switch to Liverpool.
The Reds are understood to be in the market for an energetic creative midfielder to play alongside Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard and - although they already have Raul Meireles - the addition of Boateng would further enhance their squad.
Liverpool are expected to move for a number of midfielders when the transfer window reopens in the summer, and Boateng is just one of several names on a long list of potential acquisitions.
Rennes star, Sylvain Marveaux, will be available on a free transfer at the end of the season and Liverpool are believed to have been monitoring his progress, while Villarreal's Santi Cazorla has also been linked with a transfer to Anfield.
Liverpool are also likely to reignite their interest in Blackpool captain, Charlie Adam, come the end of the campaign as Reds' owners New England Sports Ventures look to make their mark on the transfer market again.
