Liverpool are one of three clubs eyeing a transfer raid on Chelsea for highly-rated young defender Ola Aina, according to reports.

The Reds are on alert for the England U21 international, whose contract at Stamford Bridge is up at the end of the season, say the Daily Mirror.

However, the 19-year-old could also be in line for a move abroad after attracting interest from both Napoli and Borussia Dortmund.

Aina can play in a number of defensive roles, either as a centre-back or as a full-back on either side, and looks a promising talent for the future.

Liverpool have shown huge improvement under new manager Jurgen Klopp, but will surely still be tempted to make signings soon after an inconsistent start to the season overall.
