Liverpool transfer latest heading into Friday May 20.
Another player on their radar is Polish international Piotr Zielinski of Udinese, but with talks not as advanced as previously suggested, The Telegraph report Liverpool have a replacement on their radar.
The Reds are monitoring Borussia Moenchengladbach's Mahmoud Dahoud in case they cannot agree a price over Zielinski.
Dahoud, 20, was linked by SkySports to the Reds last month, with the talented midfielder enjoying a breakthrough year in the Bundesliga.
The Syrian born ace has scored five goals and provided eight assists in an impressive campaign.
The reports indicate Liverpool's transfer activity is stepping up, and they have a clear idea over the players they like.
Getting them in early would be a bonus, especially with Joel Matip's transfer already wrapped up and Marko Grujic set to join after his loan deal ends.
Liverpool finished eighth in the Premier League last season and do not have European football in 2016/17, which should provide them with a chance to really focus on breaking into the top four.
