Liverpool have been confirmed in the race to sign Portuguese defender Rolando.
The 25-year-old Porto centre back has previously been linked with a move to the Barclays Premier League, and now agent Peppino Tirri has suggested that Liverpool have competition from Manchester United as well as two sides from Italy.
"There is also Manchester United and Liverpool following the player," Tirri told Notiziariosportivo.com after claiming both Juventus and Inter Milan were tracking the player.
"His cost? Around €15 million. I think something could move towards the end of the month, now the clubs are focused on the championship and the Champions League."
Liverpool boss Kenny Dalglish has hinted at a number of player changes in the summer, with the Anfield chief looking to put his own stamp on the side should he decide to stay at Anfield permanently.
The Merseysiders are also thought to have targeted both a left back and winger in their efforts to bolster the squad in several core positions, with Sport.co.uk claiming Dalglish is keen to add defensive reinforcements at Liverpool.
Signed from Belenenses by Porto back in 2008, Rolando has made over 100 appearances in all competitions for the Portuguese Liga outfit, and has been a figure of consistency at the Estádio do Dragão.
A regular member of the national side for Portugal, a transfer tussle could ensue for the player's signature this summer.
