Liverpool are thought to be monitoring the progress of the Torino defender Gleison Bremer.
The 23 year old Brazilian has done well for the Italian club this season and is a potential target for the Premier League champions.
According to the Athletic, the Reds have been keeping tabs on the player but they are yet to make an official approach for him.
Liverpool are expected to sign a centre-back before the transfer window closes and may submit a concrete offer for the Brazilian this month.
The Reds were going through an injury crisis after losing Virgil van Dijk and Joe Gomez for the season. However, things have gone from bad to worse after Liverpool lost the likes of Fabinho and Joel Matip to injury.
