Liverpool are reportedly interested in a January move for Valencia winger Sofiane Feghouli, as Brendan Rodgers looks to strengthen his team's attacking options.
The Algeria international has been heavily linked with big-spending Ligue 1 outfit Paris Saint-Germain earlier this season but, according to the Daily Mirror, the Reds have now turned their attentions to the wide man.
Feghouli has six goals and three assists to his name from 19 appearances in the La Liga and Champions League this season. The 22-year-old's current contract with Los Che runs out in 2014 and the Spaniards, who are in a debt crisis, could be forced to cash in on the player, who arrived from French side Grenoble in 2010.
Liverpool, who are keen to get the likes of Joe Cole and Stewart Downing off their payroll, have been monitoring several European players, and their interest in Feghouli rose after Barcelona forward Alexis Sanchez's agent Fernando Felicevich ruled out the Chile ace leaving Camp Nou in the near future.
Felicevich told TalkSport: "In no case will Alexis leave Barcelona. He has returned after injury and played well.
"Alexis stays in Barcelona. Has no reason to leave. He is at the best team in the world. In addition to that Barca has Messi, a player that everyone can learn from."
Skrtel's Gives Tattoo Tribute to Hillsborough Victims
Meanwhile, Liverpool centre-back Martin Skrtel attempted tattooing for the first time in a charity event at the Royal Ink studio near Anfield that was held to raise money for the Hillsborough families.
The Slovak donated a signed shirt and put the finishing touches to an eternal flame tattoo on the back of volunteer.
"Before I came here I didn't know a lot about Hillsborough but once I got used to being at the club, I started to understand what had happened. I think it is great that the Liverpool supporters and the club have stuck together to fight for justice for the victims of the Hillsborough tragedy," Skrtel told the club Web site.
