Liverpool are thought to have sent talent scouts to view Genoa defender Andreas Granqvist and Palermo midfielder Josip Ilicic.
At first it was believed the Anfield emissaries were at Marassi purely for Granqvist during the Genoa-Palermo match before international duty.
However, according to the latest reports from Italy, Liverpool were even more impressed by Ilicic in that game.
The 24-year-old Slovenian has been with the Rosanero since 2010 and is tactically versatile, able to take on a number of midfield positions.
