Liverpool are considering making a move for £5m Barcelona defender Dani Alves, according to the Daily
The 31-year-old has seen his contract run down into its final year and could well leave on a free next summer – although new Barcelona boss Luis Enrique wants to move the player on before that.
Reports in Spain suggest a lack of concrete offers for the Brazilian right back could mean he will decide to prolong his eight year stint at the Nou Camp one more season, but his club are unwilling to let this happen.
And now Brendan Rodgers is considering whether or not to make a move for the defender as he is said to be unconvinced by Glen Johnson.
However an offer will hinge on the current deal in place to sign Spanish right back Javi Manquillo from Atletico Madrid.
The player is due on Merseyside on Monday to undergo a medical and at 20-years-old would represent a more attractive proposition to Rodgers for the future.
Spaniard Manquillo is thought to be moving initially on loan with an option to buy for £5m at the end of the season.
