Real Betis midfielder Dani Ceballos has become a target for different teams, but Liverpool are now a primary suitor to secure a deal for the 19-year-old starlet.
According to The Metro, Liverpool are competing with Chelsea to reach a deal for the Spanish international.
Real Betis are reluctant to sell the 19-year-old midfielder, but Liverpool are keen to add more depth to their squad.
Although the Reds have added midfielders such as James Milner while seeing others such as Philippe Coutinho step up, they have struggled as of late.
They have lost two consecutive matches while allowing three goals in each of those losses.
The Reds have also lost each of their most recent matches at Anfield, and they most recently fell against Manchester United in a 3-1 loss.
They may receive a boost if they are able to reach a deal for Ceballos though, as he is considered one of the best prospects in La Liga.
