Liverpool are monitoring 19-year-old Schalke midfielder Leroy Sane and are hopeful of luring him to Anfield, according to German publication Bild, via the Mirror.
Sane has four goals in 12 Bundesliga games so far this season, and previous reports have suggested that the Reds made an £11 million offer for his services over the summer.
'There was one or more prestigious club that contacted us about Sane,' Schalke GM Horst Heldt told Bildin October. 'Liverpool was ready to pay money for him.'

Now with Jurgen Klopp in charge at Liverpool, Bild say that the club will reignite their attempts to lure him to Merseyside.
The talented youngster has drawn praise this term for his performances, most notably from German national team manager Joachim Low - who believes Sane has a 'special gift' on the pitch.
"Leroy has an incredibly good feeling when it comes to running into space and, with his speed, he has acquired this very well," Low said. "He has shown the quality that he has in the final third third and in the Bundesliga matches that we have observed, he has simply convinced us.
"He is a player with a special gift and finesse, speed paired with technique and strong running – at just 19. He can make the jump with us very quickly."
According to the Daily Mail, both Manchester City and Arsenal have sent scouts to watch Sane in action, prompting the possibility that Liverpool could face a battle for his signature, either in the upcoming winter window or in the summer.
Sane made his international debut for Low's Germany last night, coming on as a substitute in the game against France at the Stade de France, which was interrupted after three suicide bombers died in blasts outside the stadium as part of a coordinated terrorist attack across the city.
France are scheduled to play England in three days' time, although there has been no word as to whether that game will go ahead as yet.
