Liverpool hope Andre Wisdom's loan move to Derby will act as a sweetener in their pursuit of Rams midfielder Will Hughes, writes Tom Hopkinson in the Sunday People.
Defender Wisdom joined the Championship club on loan until the end of the season last week, and the Kop side are now preparing to take 18-year-old Hughes in the opposite direction.
Manchester City, Manchester United and Newcastle have also shown an interest in the highly-rated youngster, but Liverpool are now in pole position.
Derby bigwigs value Hughes at £15million and, if they sell him in January, they hope to get him back on loan for the rest of the campaign.
Flogging the England Under-21 star will free up funds for new head coach Steve McClaren and the club's incoming technical director to hit the January sales.
McClaren and chief executive Sam Rush will meet early this week to decide which of the three remaining candidates will get the nod for the newly-created role.
Former Cardiff head of recruitment Iain Moody is one of the names on the final shortlist.
