Brendan Rodgers is set to make a move for Juventus winger, Mauricio Isla, according to The Daily Star.
The Liverpool boss will go head-to-head with Arsenal to sign the experienced winger, and could pay as much as £15million. However, his price could go higher if he continues to impress during the World Cup.
The Chilean ace can play in a various positions, such as right-back, which is making him an attractive prospect for many clubs across Europe, notably Liverpool and Arsenal, who have scouted him in the last year.
Both clubs are in need of a new right-back, with Liverpool's Glen Johnson's long-term future at the club looking increasingly bleak as he's failed to agree a contract extension with one year remaining on his current deal. The Gunners, on the other hand, are looking for a replacement for Bacary Sagna, after his move to Manchester City was confirmed earlier this month.
Speaking recently about his future with Juventus, Isla seemed to leave his fate in Juventus manager, Antonio Conte: "I'm working hard for Chile and for Juve. I know that the fans love me, everything will depend on the coach. I'm happy to continue my adventure at Juventus," Isla revealed.
