Liverpool are in hot pursuit of Mexico left-back Miguel Layun, according to Mexican newspaper Fichajes.

The 26-year old - who currently plays his football at Club America - has been another player who has shone on the World Cup stage following a string of impressive performances for Mexico in Brazil.


Layun would suit manager Brendan Rodgers' style as he has shown himself to be a marauding defender who loves to get forward.

That would be in keeping with the Reds free-flowing football of last season, which earned them many plaudits on their way to a second-placed finish.

However, they may have to fight off interest from Inter Milan, although the player himself is understood to prefer a move to the Premier League.

Meanwhile, Sky Sport Italia are reporting that Rafael Benitez is keen to bring Lucas Leiva to Napoli.

The Brazilian midfielder's position could be in jeopardy with the arrival of Emre Can and it could spell the end of Lucas' seven-year stint at Anfield.

Benitez originally signed Lucas for Liverpool from Gremio back in 2007.
