Liverpool are monitoring the situation of Metz striker Diafra Sakho, along with Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund.
Sakho was prolific in front of goal for Metz last term, bagging 20 goals in Ligue 2 as Les Grenats stormed to promotion by winning the division.
Marseille have been leading the race for Sakho, with Metz having long since accepted that their chances of holding onto the 24-year-old this summer are slim.
Indeed, the club's academy director Denis Schaeffer told Inside Futbol earlier this year that 15 clubs, including English sides, have been packing the stands.
He revealed to us: "Every game, there are around 15 international clubs that come to the matches to see him. English clubs are here."
And according to La Provence, Liverpool, Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund are amongst those clubs.
Sakho is a product of Metz's esteemed youth academy, which counts Robert Pires, Louis Saha, Papiss Cisse, Miralem Pjanic and Emmanuel Adebayor among its graduates.
The 24-year-old, who won the Best Player in Ligue 2 award last season, is under contract with Metz until the summer of 2015.
