Liverpool are monitoring Atletico Madrid defender Javier Manquillo.

The youngster is keen to leave Atletico this summer on-loan and favours a switch to Marcelo Bielsa's Olympique Marseille.

El Mundo Deportivo says Liverpool have been monitoring Manquillo over the past year, along with Southampton and Bayer Leverkusen.

The defender's current deal carries a €20 million buyout clause.
