Brendan Rodgers is reportedly interested in Barcelona star Dani Alves and is hopeful a €6m bid will be enough to tempt the Catalans to part with the Brazilian international.
Various Spanish sources, including Mundo Deportivo, are reporting Anfield interest in the attack-minded full-back as Glen Johnson enters the final year of his contract.
Alves too is in the last 12 months of his current deal and the club may be open to offers for the 31 year-old.
Paris Saint Germain looked to be the likely destination for the Brazilian international, but that deal has seemingly fallen through since they were hit with Financial Fair Play restrictions.
Juan Cuadrado has been linked to Barcelona which would bring raise doubts over Alves' future at the club.
Meanwhile AC Milan are the latest club thought to be interested in goalkeeper Pepe Reina after the Spaniard was told he is not part of Rodgers’ future at Anfield.
