Liverpool are keeping tabs on midfielder Leonardo Bittencourt, according to reports in Germany.
The 21-year-old has been in impressive form for Hannover this season, helping the German side climb to eighth in the Bundesliga at the midway point of the campaign.
Liverpool have reportedly scouted the German on several occasions and scouts have been pleased with what they have seen.
And now, according to Bild, Liverpool are considering a move for Bittencourt as the January transfer window draws to a close.
The Germany U21 international joined Hannover in 2013 from Borussia Dortmund, where he was struggling to break into the team.
However Jurgen Klopp's side inserted a buy-back clause into the deal and have the option to bring Bittencourt back to Dortmund ahead of any proposed move by Liverpool.
