Liverpool have accepted a six-figure bid from Championship outfit Swansea City for 20-year-old winger Paul Anderson.
The Anfield prospect spent the 2007/08 campaign on loan with Roberto Martinez's side before joining newly-promoted Nottingham Forest last season.
Chairman Huw Jenkins is keen to agree personal terms with the youngster, but has stressed he is not the club's only target.
Anderson, who is believed to also be interesting Championship rivals Forest, will now travel to Swansea to discuss the move.
"We have had a six-figure sum with Liverpool accepted,'' chairman Huw Jenkins told the club's official website. "But I must stress that Paul is one of a number of options we are pursuing.
"Roberto has highlighted a number of players he is interested in and we have been pursuing them while he has been away scouting various players in various countries.
"The offer has been accepted by Liverpool, but it is still subject to us agreeing personal terms and Roberto sitting down with the player for further talks.
"Whoever we sign, we want players who want to play for Roberto and Swansea City. That attitude is vital - however good they are."
