Liverpool's reported quest to find a new holding midfielder appears to have led them to Udinese's Kwadwo Asamoah.
The Ghana international is also alleged to be on the radar of Manchester City and is said to be interesting Arsenal, as well as attracting the attention of clubs in Serie A.
According to calcionews24, Liverpool are now courting the the 22-year-old with a view to a bid in the summer as they look to add a tough tackling player to their midfield ranks.
Liverpool are reportedly after a midfield general to boss proceedings in the middle of the park and Asamoah is the latest in a relatively long list of potential acquisitions to have been linked with the role.
France international Yann M'Vila appears to be one of the favourites to fill the position at Anfield, while compatriot Mamadou Sakho is also allegedly on the Liverpool radar.
Asamoah, meanwhile could also prove to be a worthy addition for Liverpool who would apparently have to fight off interest from Arsenal after the players' agent revealed the Gunners were interested in his client.
Claudio Vagheggi said: “There are several interested teams, in England there is Arsenal. In Italy, Fiorentina like him and there is also a big Serie A club who is interested in Kwadwo."
However, should Liverpool or Arsenal formalise their reported interest in Asamoah, they would have part with close to €30 million after Udinese slapped an exorbitant price-tag on the Ghanian.
