Liverpool are monitoring developments with Tottenham midfielder Victor Wanyama.
Manchester United and Chelsea have also taken note that the Kenya international has been used sparingly by Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino following his return from injury.
Wanyama has started in the FA Cup ties against AFC Wimbledon and Newport County but has been used predominantly as a substitute during the eight other games that he has been involved in since recovering from a knee injury.
That included a 12 minute cameo against Liverpool when he changed the game with a thunderous strike in the 2-2 draw.
Steven Gerrard highlighted Liverpool's need to find a 'monster' holding midfielder for next season to bring the best out of new signing Naby Keita and Jordan Henderson.
With Emre Can weighing up a summer move to Juventus, Gerrard said: "I think Liverpool would benefit from a monster of a central midfielder, a holder.
A Wanyama-type player who does sit in and is disciplined, and he would give more protection to the back four.
Emre Can's leaving, obviously Keita's coming in. But Keita is a No 8, Keita is a dribbler, and a runner. 'The way he (Klopp) plays he plays 4-3-3 more often than not. So you can accommodate a Henderson and a Keita."
Though Gerrard's remarks were understood to be innocent of any inside information, Wanyama is considered a player of interest and knows several of the Liverpool squad well from his time at Southampton.
Manchester United and Chelsea have also followed the 26-year-old closely as they look to bolster their options in that position. #LFC#YNWA#VictorWanyama#Wanyama#Liverpool#LiverpoolFC#WeAreLiverpool#LFCFamily#Anfield#TheRed#PremierLeague#TheRedPost#TransferWndow#Tottenham#Spurs

Harry #Kane moest het woensdagavond ontgelden als gast bij de #BRIT Awards in de O2 Arena in Londen. De spits van #Tottenham Hotspur mocht één van de awards uitreiken. Presentator Jack #Whitehall , fan van #Arsenal , kon het niet laten om even een grap te maken met de Tottenham-aanvaller: ''Dit is waarschijnlijk de enige trofee die hij dit seizoen in zijn handen zal hebben", lachte Whitehall. Kane kon er gelukkig wel om lachen.
