Liverpool are looking at Peruvian defender Carlos Zambrano to bolster their backline this summer.
The centre-back has been a key part of the Eintracht Frankfurt team that is overachieving in this year's Bundesliga, currently sitting in the Champions League places.
One of the club's directors Bruno Hübner revealed: "There is interest from Liverpool in Carlos Zambrano. They have asked about him, but there has not been an offer yet."
Brought over to Germany by Schalke at the age of 16 after some impressive displays in the U17 World Cup of 2005, he could never secure his place in the first team and was loaned out to newly-promoted St Pauli.
Zambrano remained in Hamburg with St Pauli even after their relegation, and was sufficiently impressive in the 2. Bundesliga to catch the eye of Armin Veh at Eintracht Frankfurt.
Veh recently said that Zambrano "would fit any of the top clubs in Europe", and after paying just €1.2million for him in the summer, Frankfurt would be looking at a significant profit if Liverpool were to come back in with an offer.
