Real Madrid are unlikely to land Porto right-back Danilo next summer, leaving Liverpool free to snap up the 23-year-old.
Danilo is wanted by the Bernabeu giants but has been advised against the move by Barcelona striker Neymar.
The two players are reportedly close friends and Brazil compatriot Neymar has been trying to convince Danilo to sign for Barca, but without any luck, claim Spanish newspaper Marca.
Instead of moving to the Liga, Danilo now looks likely to join fellow Brazilians Lucas and Philippe Coutinho at Anfield as Liverpool track the defender.
According to Portuguese paper O Jogo, the Reds have kept an eye on the full-back's progress this season but face competition from Juventus to secure his signature.
Juve are also in search of defensive recruits as they look to bolster their Champions League squad for next season.
