Liverpool are watching Atletico Mineiro striker Diego Tardelli.

The Telegraph says Liverpool are believed to be monitoring Brazil striker Diego Tardelli ahead of lodging a £6 million offer.

The 25 year-old, formerly with Real Betis and PSV Eindhoven, has been named as one of coach Dunga’s seven back-up players for his 23-man squad for the World Cup after impressing for the Belo Horizonte side this season.

There remain obstacles to Rafael Benítez making his third signing of the summer, though, beyond West Ham also being interested.
