Liverpool are being linked with a bid for Udinese wing-back Mauricio Isla.

The Chile international has been watched extensively by Manchester United chief scout Martin Ferguson.

However, La Tercera says Liverpool are set to table a £15 million offer for Isla before the market shuts next week.

Isla can play in midfield and on the flank - and has been a major influence in Udinese's success over the last two seasons.
