Liverpool are reportedly closely monitoring Benfica winger Nicolas Gaitan as they ramp up their search for potential summer acquisitions.

The 23-year-old Argentina international moved to Benfica from Boca Juniors last summer and has scored seven times during his debut season in Portugal.

According to the Mirror, Liverpool have dispatched scouts to compile a report on the fleet-footed attacker and a bid for Gaitan's services could be in the offing.


Liverpool are known to be keen to bring wide players to Anfield who can produce quality delivery that will optimise the performances of Andy Carroll.

The Reds are seemingly lacking much natural width and Damien Comolli has previously stated that Liverpool are after more potent options to play on the flanks.

Along with Gaitan, Liverpool are also said to be chasing Sevilla wideman Diego Perotti and Aston Villa's Ashley Young - with the latter also a reported target for Manchester United.
