Liverpool have made an enquiry about the availability of Jay Rodriguez, talkSPORT understands.
The Reds are currently looking at strengthening their forward line following Luis Suarez's £75million move to Barcelona, and now Brendan Rodgers, who has already signed Rickie Lambert and Lazar Markovic in an attempt to bolster his frontline, is turning his attention to Rodriguez.
The English forward was offered a new deal at Southampton this summer but is yet to put pen-to-paper as a number of the club's star men have left St Mary's along with manager Mauricio Pochettino.
Rodgers will be keen to wrap up a deal quickly for the 24-year-old, who is currently sidelined with an anterior cruciate ligament injury, as Manchester City are also keen on the ex-Burnley star.
