Liverpool are believed to be keen on a summer deal for Roma's Miralem Pjanic after boss Brendan Rodgers reportedly flew out to Rome this week.

Rodgers' assistant Colin Pascoe took Liverpool's training session yesterday, amid speculation the Reds boss had made his way to the Italian capital for a closer look at Pjanic.

However, with Roma not playing since Sunday and not in action again until this coming Sunday, it's unclear what Rodgers was planning to see - if anything.

But reports on 101greatgoals.com suggest Liverpool's interest in the 24-year-old is mounting ahead of the summer window and they are keen to steal a march on any other potential suitors.
