Porto defender Rolando is subject to interest from Liverpool and Roma, reports talkSPORT.
With cash to spend following a recent takeover, Roma are keen to add the Portugese star to their squad for the new season.
But Liverpool, who will have cash to spend after a takeover of their own, are rivalling the Serie A side for his signature.
The £12 million rated centre-back played every minute of Porto's Liga Sagres winning season, where they went 27 games unbeaten, and his performances have been so impressive that Livepool have been tracking his progress.
With Kenny Dalglish set to be installed at the helm, the Liverpool boss is looking to add a defender to his ranks with Gary Cahill and Neven Subotic also on the club's radar.
