Liverpool are reported to be weighing up a move for Portsmouth's Sulley Muntari.
Muntari has impressed at Fratton Park since his summer arrival from Udinese and his performances are thought to have alerted Reds boss Rafa Benitez.
Benitez is drawing up his list of targets in the January transfer window and could make a move for Muntari if he is priced out of a deal for Javier Mascherano.
The Ghana international has quickly adapted to life in England and he is a big fans' favourite at Pompey.
The 23-year-old has admitted he would be interested in a move to a bigger club if the chance became available.
Dream"I want to end up at one of the biggest clubs - that is every player's dream," Muntari is quoted as saying in the Mirror.
"Of course I will try my best here and help Portsmouth win many things, and maybe qualify for Europe, but eventually I would like to play for a bigger club."
