Liverpool are reportedly hot on the trail of Mexico left-back Miguel Layun after a string of impressive displays at the World Cup.
The Mexican newspaper Fichajes claims Reds boss Brendan Rodgers is keen on the 26-year-old as his marauding style of play down the flank would fit in perfectly with the Northern Irishman's approach at Anfield.
Rogers is known to be in the market for a new full-back as he looks to improve on last season's near-miss in the Premier League title race, and Layun may just be the player he is looking for.
Liverpool will have to move fast though if they want to push through a deal for the Club America star as a host of other top clubs are also showing an interest in Layun's talents including Serie A outfit Inter Milan.
One factor which does appear to be in the Reds' favour is the player's apparent desire to test himself in the Premier League.
