Benfica will sell misfit forward Nolito in January - and Liverpool are rumoured to be keen.
The 26-year-old has failed to command a regular first team place under Jorge Jesus and the Portuguese club have agreed to listen to offers in January.
Nolito's predicament is a stark contrast to his first season following a free transfer from Barcelona. Arsenal were said to be interested at the time and he went on to score 15 goals in all competitions.
But the Spaniard, who has yet to earn a cap for his country, has fallen out of favour and will be moved on.
The news is likely to interest Brendan Rodgers, who says he will be active in January and improving his attacking options is a priority.
