Liverpool are being linked with a shock move for Swansea City winger Nathan Dyer, according to reports.

The former Southampton speedster helped the Swans secure promotion to the Barclays Premier League last term via the play-offs, with Brendan Rodgers' side beating Reading 4-2 at Wembley back in May.

However, Dyer's yet to agree a new contract at the Liberty Stadium, and with only 12 months left on his current deal, speculation is circulating that Liverpool could make a move for the player.

Clubcall claims the Welsh side are now bracing themselves for a bid from Kenny Dalglish, with Liverpool reportedly looking to continue their policy of bringing young British talent to the club this summer.

Jordan Henderson, Charlie Adam and Stewart Downing have already made the move to Anfield for substantial fees in the transfer window, and the Liverpool boss is tipped to make even more moves in August.

A left back is thought to be the main priority for the Merseysiders, with Jose Enrique continuing to be linked with a Liverpool move following the sale of Paul Konchesky earlier in the summer.

The Swans, meanwhile, have signed Wayne Routledge this summer, and whilst Rodgers will want both players to be available for the coming campaign, the former QPR loanee could serve as a replacement for Dyer.
