Liverpool are interested in Bayern Munich fullback Diego Contento.

The Germany youth international is ready to leave Bayern this month after losing his first-choice status last season.

Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers, in the market for a new left-back, has made enquiries, as has Hertha Berlin.

"It's important that he plays more than last season," revealed agent Ludwig Kogl.
