Liverpool are reportedly monitoring West Ham midfielder Scott Parker in their pursuit of summer reinforcements.
According to The Mirror, the Reds are keen on the Football Writers' Association Player of the Year, as well as Real Madrid enforcer Lassana Diarra.
Parker's performances have earned him plenty of plaudits this season - not least the accolade from the FWA - with his industrious and inspirational displays also rewarded with a place in Fabio Capello's England set-up.
Liverpool are thought to be in the market for a player to add extra grit to their midfield, and Parker is seen as a man who could have an impact at Anfield.
However, at 30-years-old, Parker does not fit with the ethos of Liverpool owners Fenway Sports Group in their quest to bring players to Anfield who still have plenty of room to develop.
And, with West Ham unlikely to let their star man leave on the cheap - even if they are relegated - Liverpool could decide that a bid may not make financial sense.
As well as Parker and Diarra, Liverpool are allegedly tracking Rennes enforcer Yann M'Villa, who has been tipped to make a £17 million move to Anfield.
