Liverpool are in a three-way tussle for highly-rated Chelsea youngster Ola Aina.
Napoli and Borussia Dortmund also want the versatile defender who has broken into the England U21 setup this season.
Interest in Aina, 19, is mounting with his Chelsea contract expiring at the end of the season.
Napoli - who have another Chelsea youngster Nathaniel Chalobah on loan - have maintained their interest after having a loan bid for Aina turned down last summer.
They and Dortmund can open talks with Aina about signing a pre-contract ahead of a summer move from next month.
Aina featured for Chelsea in pre-season after impressing for their successful academy sides and but has yet to be handed his competitive debut.
