Liverpool are considering making a move for highly rated midfielder Mario Bolatti, currently under contract with Fiorentina, claims Argentinian newspaper Ole.
Reds boss Roy Hodgson sees the 25-year-old Bolatti as the perfect replacement for Javier Mascherano.
Bolatti started his professional career with Belgrano and also played for Porto and Huracan before joining Fiorentina in January 2010.
The Argentinian international initially appeared to be on his way to River Plate on a one-year loan deal, but Liverpool's interest could very well convince Bolatti to stay in Europe after all.
