Liverpool are looking at Brazilian midfielder Raffael, according to talkSPORT.

The Hertha Berlin player has netted five times for the Bundesliga strugglers this term, but they are just two points off the bottom three domestically.

Raffael, formerly of Chiasso and FC Zurich, has provided six assists this season, and is Berlin's second top scorer in the current campaign.

Despite having just two years left to run on his current deal, the 26-year-old is rated at £7 million, a fee that doesn't appear like deterring the interest of Liverpool or fellow admirers Lazio or Sampdoria.

German reports suggest Liverpool have sent scouts to watch the attacking midfielder, who showed his mean streak earlier in the season, getting sent off against Hoffenheim.

Raffael would join a busy Reds midfield, with the likes of Jonjo Shelvey and Maxi Rodriguez often having to miss out at the expense of the likes of Stewart Downing, Steven Gerrard and Charlie Adam.
