Liverpool have sent scouts to watch Wigan winger Charles N'Zogbia, according to reports.

The French international has been linked with a handful of clubs amidst reports that his future at the DW Stadium is coming to an end, with former side Newcastle and north east rivals Sunderland are both thought to be involved in the chase.

However, the News of the World claims Liverpool have sent scouts to watch the 24-year-old in his last three games, with going on to suggest the Reds will fight off their Barclays Premier League rivals for the signature.

Kenny Dalglish is known to be in the market for a winger at Anfield, with Ashley Young, Eden Hazard and Jeremy Menez all speculatively linked with a summer move to Liverpool.

Setanta Sports claimed earlier in the week that N'Zogbia was a potential back-up option should the Merseysiders fail to land Stewart Downing, with a £7 million price tag placed on the Le Havre academy graduate's head should Roberto Martinez's side go down.


The Latics survived with victory away at Stoke though, meaning the fee is likely to be higher should Liverpool wish to land the player when the transfer window re-opens on July 1st.

Dalglish claimed on Friday that Liverpool would only be chasing the 'highest calibre' of player come the end of the season, and N'Zogbia fits the bill given his experience and proven ability during his time in England.
