Liverpool is set to move for Inter starlet Rene Krhin, according to La Stampa.
Roy Hodgson likes the player and his good relations with Inter could help him push through a move for the Slovenian midfielder.
Jose Mourinho used Krhin sparingly last season, but he was registered as part of the Champions League squad.
The 20-year-old Khrin hopes for regular action and he could be turned on by the lure of Premier League football.
He has also been linked with Chelsea and Manchester United, but Hodgson's friendship with Inter chief Massimo Moratti could prove pivotal if negotiations take off.
