Udinese defender Cristian Zapata has told local radio back in Colombia that he could sign for Liverpool.
The international centre-back, who can also play on the right, has been a success with fourth placed Udinese this season.
The 24-year-old, who has also claimed interest from Bayern Munich, says he could be set for an Anfield switch this summer.
"I don't know anything for sure, all I can say is that I am very close to Liverpool," he told La FM. "We will see what happens with my future at the end of the Copa America."
