That's according to new reports today that claim Brendan Rodgers will look to follow up the Reds' earlier interest in the Juventus right-back.

Isla's ability to play in a number of positions makes him an attractive proposition for interested suitors, with Liverpool and Arsenal casting an eye over him last year.

Both clubs are in the market for a new right-back, with the Gunners losing Bacary Sagna to Manchester City earlier this month.

Liverpool too are on the lookout for someone to fill the position long-term, with Glen Johnson's future at the club in question.

Johnson, 29, has just a year remaining on his Liverpool deal and has so far failed to agree a new one.
