Liverpool manager Kenny Dalglish is reportedly keeping tabs on Sevilla defender Ferderico Fazio as he looks to bolster his defence.
The Reds manager has been linked with moves for a number of centre-halves as he looks to add more experience to his back-line with Jamie Carragher nearing the end of his playing days.
Liverpool are reportedly casting their eye over Porto defender Bruno Alves while reports have emerged claiming they are also interested in Newcastle captain Fabricio Coloccini.
However, Dalglish is thought to be casting his net wide and is eager to explore as many options as possible.
And reports in Spain have claimed he has sent scouts to watch Fazio in action.
The Liverpool manager will also face competition from Inter Milan, who are also thought to be interested. The 6ft 5in defender will not come cheap, however, with Sevilla demanding in excess of €15m to make any potential deal happen.
The 24-year-old, whose contract runs until 2014, has become an important part of the Sevilla squad and made his Argentina debut this summer.
