Liverpool are following Barcelona winger Alexis Sanchez. The Daily Express says Reds manager Brendan Rodgers has sent scouts to Barcelona to check out the Chilean midfielder in action.

Though Liverpool are understood to be in the market for a forward, midfield is one department they need to strengthen especially as the likes of Steven Gerrard and Jonjo Shelvey need support in terms of supplying service to main talisman Luis Suarez.

Sanchez has become a bit part player at Camp Nou this season, with the majority of his La Liga appearances coming from the subs bench.
