Liverpool are reportedly keeping close watch on Norwich duo Emiliano Buendia and Jamal Lewis with a view to a double transfer.

The pair have been regular performers for their side in the Canaries' first season back in the Premier League.

As reported by the Athletic, Liverpool are keen on both players and are considering a move in the summer.

Left-back Lewis, 21, is seen as a potential back-up to current first-choice Andy Robertson, with midfielder James Milner the current go-to deputy in the Scot's absence.

Buendia meanwhile has attracted attention for his creativity, having provided more chances than any other player in the top flight, apart from Man City's Kevin de Bruyne.

The Argentine has also racked up the second highest number of assists - again behind de Bruyne - setting up seven goals for his team.

His impressive start to his debut season in the Premier League comes off the back of a solid showing in the Championship last year, where he notched eight goals and 17 assists.

The 23-year-old only joined Norwich in 2018, having cut his cloth at Spanish La Liga outfit Getafe.

Norwich have no interest in selling either player in the midst of their relegation battle, but could have their hand forced if they fail to beat the drop come May.

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has also all-but ruled out any further business for the Reds in January, having already added Takumi Minamino to their squad from RB Salzburg.

Klopp said: "Every year we have the same situation. It is always tricky – we will probably not be too busy.

“We will see what happens, but it is not likely.”

One man who could be on the move however is former Liverpool striker Daniel Sturridge, who has been linked with a switch to Aston Villa just six months after departing Anfield for Turkish side Trabzonspor.
