Liverpool are preparing to test Barcelona's resolve with a £20 million bid for want-away winger Alexis Sanchez, with a deal likely to be concluded after the World Cup this summer.

The Daily Star reports how the 25-year-old Chile international has been identified as a top target for the Merseyside club, despite repeated assurances from Spain that the player is not for sale.

Reds boss Brendan Rodgers wants the Chile international at Anfield as he looks to strengthen his squad ahead of Liverpool's return to the Champions League next season.

The former Udinese star has all the necessary attributes to improve Rodgers's current options in attack, they just need to convince Barcelona's new manager Luis Enrique to sell.

Sanchez currently earns £90,000-a-week at Camp Nou and Liverpool will need to at least match those wages if they are serious about luring the South American star to the Premier League.

After joining Barcelona in a £21.1 million deal in 2011, Sanchez has gone on to score 47 goals in 141 first-team appearances, but could end his La Liga stay with a Liverpool transfer ahead of the 2014/15 campaign.
