Manchester City winger Adam Johnson would consider a move from Eastlands, with Liverpool keen to sign the England international.
The 23-year-old has recently returned from a long-term ankle injury, but with high competition for places at City, will have few opportunities to impress.
Furthermore the former Middlesborough winger will be looking to get back in Fabio Capello's England squad, which he was left out of for the double header against Wales and Ghana, and Liverpool could offer a way out for Johnson.
"Every footballer has to think about it when the time comes. It is still early but I definitely would consider it," Johnson told the Sun.
Kenny Dalglish is expected to make a winger his top priority in the summer transfer window, as the Liverpool boss searches for a player a genuine crossing ability to provide service to new signing Andy Carroll.
Liverpool's search for a winger has seen them linked with Ashley Young, Charlie Adam and Eden Hazard, but with Johnson deprived of first-team football at City, unlike the aforementioned trio at their respective clubs, the Englishman could soon be on his way to Anfield.
