Rafa Benitez is tracking highly rated Seville teenager Sergio Ramos as he prepares further reconstruction of his squad this summer.
But Benitez would have to battle with Europe's top clubs to bring one of Spain's hottest talents to Merseyside.
The 18-year old defender has attracted the attentions of Real Madrid, Barcelona, Manchester United and Arsenal this season.
Benitez first discussed the possibility of brining right-back Ramos to Anfield last summer, but a staggering price tag of £10m was beyond Liverpool's price range, particularly for a defender.
Given the competition for the youngster's signature, Benitez would need all his powers of persuasion in order to attract the under-21 international to Merseyside.
Clearly any fresh approach will also depend on Champions League qualification next season as Benitez prepares a transfer kitty for the closed season.
Ramos was recently tipped to make his senior international debut for Spain against San Marino, but he is currently recovering from a knee injury which ruled him out of that fixture last month.
He's one of the key reasons Seville have genuine aspirations of qualifying for next years competition despite currently sitting fifth in La Liga.
