Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has turned his attention to Bolton midfielder Mark Davies after seemingly missing out on Gylfi Sigurdsson who is on the verge of joining Tottenham.
Rodgers had hoped to be able to persuade Sigurdsson to choose a move to Anfield after enjoying a good relationship with the midfielder when they were together at Swansea.
However, it seems as though the Hoffenheim midfielder is now on the verge of completing a move to White Hart Lane after the German side accepted an offer from Tottenham.
The Daily Mirror has reported that Liverpool are prepared to offer as much as £6million for the midfielder who would be playing in the Championship is he decided to remain at Bolton Wanderers.
Davies, 24, was one of the stand out performers in a Bolton side that struggled throughout the season as he scored four goals and provided plenty of energy in the heart of midfield.
Liverpool particularly struggled in midfield last season as Jordan Henderson, Charlie Adam and Jay Spearing all received criticism for their performances.
Rodgers is keen to freshen up his squad after the Reds suffered a disappointing league campaign and made the decision to part company with Kenny Dalglish.
