Liverpool are reportedly lining up a January offer for Udinese’s Brazilian centre-back Danilo.
The 28-year-old only arrived at the Stadio Friuli in June 2011 on a five-year contract.
He has quickly become a regular in Francesco Guidolin’s side, but according to British media reports there is interest from Liverpool.
Manager Brendan Rodgers was impressed with Danilo and is working towards a January proposal.
Danilo has an Italian passport and has played for Paulista, Ituano, Atletico Paranaense and Palmeiras.
