Liverpool are among a number of clubs tracking Angers SCO's Bruno Ecuele Manga, according to the defender's agent.
The Gabonese is currently playing in the French second division, but Reds boss Rafa Benitez is said to have sent scouts to check on his progress.
Paris St Germain have also been linked with the 21-year-old, while Arsenal were credited with an interest at the beginning of 2009.
The former Bordeaux player's representative, Yvan Le Mee, believes a move is a possibility but he does not expect anything to happen until after the African Cup of Nations.
No concrete offers
Mee said in Le Quotidien du Foot: "I cannot give you a list of all the clubs that are interested in him.
"All the French clubs have come to see him, notably PSG, and a lot of foreign teams are also following him.
"(Liverpool scout) Laurent Viaud has often seen him playing. Liverpool have been following him since last season."
He added: "You never know, but I believe Bruno will not move in January as he will play in the African Cup of Nations.
"There have been no concrete offers so far. Realistically, there will be no news until March."
