The Merseysiders are believed to be keeping a close eye on Reading’s Jordan Obita and have sent scouts to watch the youngster’s performances in the Championship.
The 20-year-old has broken into Madejski Stadium first-team this season after loan spells at Oldham, Portsmouth, Gillingham and Barnet.
A former England under-17 and 19 international, the winger has started 22 times for Reading this season, scoring a solitary goal.
Impressive performances are said to have attracted interest from Liverpool, with the Reds encouraged by Obita’s ability to play in a number of positions.
Although predominantly a winger, the youngster is also able to play in central midfield and The Mirror suggest that Rodgers sees the potential in using Obita as a left-back also.
