Liverpool are closing in on the signature of AIK Solna defender Alex Milosevic, it has been claimed.
According to The People, the Reds have 'opened talks' with the Swedish club regarding the acquisition of the £1.5 million-rated 19-year-old, who has been linked with Arsenal in the past.
A Sweden under-21 international, Milosevic has been linked with Liverpool for a number of months as Kenny Dalglish looks to further reinforce his squad his summer.
The Liverpool boss has already added Jordan Henderson, Charlie Adam and Stewart Downing to the Anfield ranks to the tune of £45 million, but isn't yet ready to conclude his business.
Reports in the French press have suggested that Liverpool are closing in on the signing of Lyon full-back Aly Cissokho, in a deal worth around £8.7 million.
Should Cissoko make the move to Anfield, he will ease Liverpool's woes at left-back, with the signing of a recognised left-sided defender identified as a summer priority for the Reds.
Newcastle's Jose Enrique had initially been installed as the favourite to succeed Paul Konchesky at Anfield, but the Spaniard's proposed move to Liverpool looks increasingly unlikely.
