Liverpool have reportedly fallen behind Inter Milan in pursuit of highly-rated Udinese star Mauricio Isla.
The versatile Chilean has been in impressive form in Serie A this season, and has been particularly noted for his versatility - being able to operate across both the defence and midfield.
However, according to talkSPORT, Inter have moved ahead of Liverpool as favourites to secure the 23-year-old's signature, and have already made contact with Udinese regarding a potential summer deal.
Inter are reported to be willing to pay £13 million in order to bring Isla to the San Siro, and his departure from Udine appears to be a forgone conclusion.
Whether or not Kenny Dalglish allows Inter a free run at Isla remains to be seen, with the Liverpool boss likely to freshen up his squad once again in the summer.
