Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers is hoping to secure the services of Manchester City midfielder James Milner, according to the Mirror.
Rodgers has already shown intent in the transfer market after the departure of Luis Suarez to Barcelona gave the club a £75m cash boost.
He has brought Lazar Markovic and Emre Can to Anfield and the Reds also look set to seal deal for QPR striker Loic Remy, who spent last season on loan at Newcastle.
Rodgers is reportedly keen on Milner, who is said to be fed up at the bit-part role he currently has with the Premier League champions.
The 28-year old was resigned to the bench for large parts of last season and the Liverpool manager is keen to resurrect the player's club career and give his squad some much-needed experience.
According to reports, the enquiry made by Rodgers for Milner was met with a positive response and it now looks as though he will firm up his interest by making a bid.
Liverpool are one of a number of clubs reportedly interested in Milner, including Merseyside rivals Everton, Arsenal and Aston Villa.
But it seems the Reds are the favourites, with Milner apparently keen to buy in to Rodgers' footballing philosophy.
The midfielder appears likely to be one of the victims of a summer clear-out at City as they look to add vital quality to the squad as they prepare to launch an assault on four fronts next season.
Joleon Lescott joined West Brom last month and 'keeper Cosel Pantillimon signed for Sunderland, and Jack Rodwell and Scott Sinclair are also possible departures from the Etihad.
