Liverpool face competition from Sunderland and Newcastle United in the race to sign winger Charles N'Zogbia.
The French international winger has been courted by a number of Barclays Premier League clubs amidst talk of a DW Stadium exit, with Liverpool boss Kenny Dalglish thought to be one of those keen on bringing the player to Anfield.
N'Zogbia was close to leaving Wigan in both the summer and January, but a move to Birmingham City fell through and the 24-year-old has continued to impress with the Latics rather than Blues.
That's left the door open for a number of clubs to show an interest in the player, with Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur also thought to be keen on the player.
However, reports in the The Mirror claim Newcastle and Sunderland are now poised to make summer moves for the player, with the pair considering £11 million offers come the end of the season.
Liverpool will need to brace themselves for the battle, with the Reds linked with a string of wide men in recent weeks amidst reports that the Scottish boss is eager to make a number of changes in the summer.
Eden Hazard, Ashley Young and Sylvan Marveaux are thought to be on the radar of the Merseysiders, with the Liverpool boss keeping his options open and a number of names on the wishlist.
With money to spend following the arrival of NESV, the valuation does not appear to be an issue for Liverpool and it will remain to be seen if they compete for the former Le Havre youth star.
