Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp is being linked with a move for Axel Witsel.
The Zenit St Petersburg midfielder has been strongly linked with a move to Everton.
New Toffees boss Ronald Koeman is said to have identified the central midfielder as a key addition to his new side.
But Tutto Mercato are now claiming that Klopp has switched his sights to the £30m rated Belgium international.
The German is looking to add a new midfielder to his squad and has so far been frustrated in his moves.
But he could be set to land Witsel if these reports are accurate.
