Liverpool are monitoring Jack Wilshere’s situation at Arsenal.
The England international midfielder has been struggling to get much game time since returning from a loan spell at Premier League club Bournemouth last season.
With the World Cup approaching next Summer the twenty-five year old is considering his options ahead of the January transfer window and could look to move on from The Emirates in the new year.
Liverpool are believed to be one of a number of clubs keeping a close eye on the diminutive midfielder and could make a cut-price offer in the Winter window if Gunners boss Arsene Wenger looks to move him on.
Any deal could be difficult to get over the line, if Liverpool do decide to make a move, with Wenger still aggrieved over Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain heading for Anfield in the Summer.
Wilshere is likely to get offers from overseas clubs and Arsenal would be more likely to entertain the idea of a permanent exit for him if it is abroad.
But the London-born player is keen to stay in his homeland due to family ties and the prospect of keeping in the scope of England manager Gareth Southgate as he picks his World Cup squad for Russia.
