The agent of Benfica striker Nolito claims Liverpool are interested in signing his client, although the Reds have yet to make a formal approach for the Spaniard.

Nolito scored 11 goals in 29 league appearances for Benfica last term, and his form has also attracted the interest of La Liga side Valencia.

"Clubs like Valencia and Liverpool are interested in him but there are still no concrete proposals," the 25-year-old's representative Oscar Font Portuguese radio station TSF.

"For now his challenge is to stay here and have an even better season individually and collectively to win major titles."

Whether or not Liverpool do decide to formalist their interest in Nolito remains to be seen, but the Reds will surely bring goalscoring reinforcements to Anfield this summer.

Liverpool were particularly profligate in front of goal under Kenny Dalglish last season, with the Reds posting their lowest number of strikes in the league for two decades.

The priority for Liverpool, of course, remains appointing Dalglish's successor, and the club's owners have already been granted permission to interview Wigan manager Roberto Martinez.

Swansea boss Brendan Rodgers, meanwhile, has rejected the opportunity to speak to the club, and will continue his work at the Liberty Stadium.
