Liverpool are being linked with a deadline day move for Manchester City winger Adam Johnson.
The England international has been linked with a move away from the Etihad Stadium all summer, with the 24-year-old's first team opportunities set to become even more limited this term following the arrival of Samir Nasri.
Arsenal are also thought to be keen on the player, but with the Gunners chasing Spanish playmaker Mikel Arteta in the closing stages of the window.
That pursuit could leave Liverpool boss Kenny Dalglish free to chase Johnson, and The Metro claims a loan offer has been 'lodged'.
The Anfield outfit are also in pursuit of other players on deadline day after confirming the signing of defender Sebastian Coates yesterday, the sixth Liverpool addition in the transfer window.
Craig Bellamy has reportedly left the Wales camp to travel to Merseyside for a medical, while another former Liverpool player, Yossi Benayoun, appears set for Arsenal.
The final hours of the window promise to be a busy time for all connected to Liverpool football club.
