Liverpool are following Steaua Bucharest defender Iasmin Latovlevici. According to his representative, Florin Iacob, big-spending French outfit Monaco are interested in his client, but he told Sportro TV that "even bigger" clubs were also looking in the player's direction.

"Everything depends on the offer," said Iacob.

"I have been contacted by clubs even bigger than Monaco. Don't be surprised if Liverpool are interested in him. I do not confirm their interest, but it will be a surprise for everyone."
