Liverpool are planning to launch a bid for Lille midfielder Mathieu Bodmer, according to reports in France.
Bodmer has five years to run on his current contract with Lille but has admitted that he is keen to one day challenge himself in England.
Premiership duo Manchester United and Arsenal have both been linked with him in the past, as well as a host of other European heavyweights.
He has been an influential figure for Claude Puel's side this season and has helped Lille to qualify for the knockout stages of the UEFA Champions League for the first time.
French sources claim that Liverpool are now mulling over a move for the highly-rated defensive midfielder.
