The player in question is Brazilian winger Malcom, who is currently on the books of Russian outfit Zenit.
A report from French outlet Footmercato claims that the Reds appreciate the 26-year-old winger who has impressed with Zenit St Petersburg this past season.
Little more information is given on the price of the winger, who is under contract until 2027 with his current club.
Malcom joined Zenit from FC Barcelona in 2019 and has since featured over 100 times for them. It was the 2022/23 campaign where the South American truly shone, though.
In 27 league matches he scored 23 goals and provided nine assists, whilst largely operating as a right-winger.
Liverpool have an abundance of attacking talents on their books heading into the new season, with Cody Gakpo, Darwin Nunez, Luis Diaz and Diogo Jota able to cover both the left wing and the centre-forward role.
However, Liverpool’s right-hand side is not great when it comes to depth. Mohamed Salah remains one of the best wingers in the world, but if he were to pick up an injury, Jurgen Klopp has very little quality cover for him, which is where Malcom’s signing could help.
