Lazar Markovic is poised to complete his £20 million move from Benfica to Liverpool on Monday as Brendan Rodgers weighs up a raid on Swansea City for Wilfried Bony.
Markovic will have a medical at Melwood on Monday. Rodgers, the Liverpool manager, is keen to make at least three further recruits - including the Belgium international Divock Origi - and he will target at least one striker to replace Luis Suárez.
Bony, the Ivory Coast international, is known to be a top target and Liverpool are considering making a bid this week to head off competition from Tottenham Hotspur.
The Swansea forward scored 25 goals last season and he is understood to have a £20 million release clause.
Bony's Swansea team-mate Ben Davies, the Wales international, is also on Liverpool's radar if their bid to sign Sevilla's Alberto Moreno collapses.
Another Rodgers target, Southampton defender Dejan Lovren, has avoided a club fine after reporting for training on Sunday.
