Liverpool interested in £28m Benfica midfielder Nemanja Matic [Di Marzio]

Brendan Rodgers has managed a fine start to the season at Liverpool and seems willing to invest in order to ensure Champions League qualification.

Former Chelsea midfielder Nemanja Matic is his primary January target according to Di Marzio journalist Fabrizio Romano.

The Serbian midfielder has also been strongly linked with a move to Napoli, with Manchester United also showing interest.

Benfica reportedly value the player at around £28m and are unlikely to let him leave on the cheap.
