Liverpool plan to trump West Brom for on-loan Ahmed Hegazy

Liverpool are eyeing West Brom defender Ahmed Hegazy.

The centre-back has impressed at the Hawthorns since arriving on loan from Al Ahly.

ESPN says Liverpool have been in discussions with the 26-year-old's parent club.

The Reds are said to be facing competition from Leicester thought, with their head of recruitment Eduardo Macia having worked with the defender during their time at Fiorentina.

One stumbling block for Jurgen Klopp's hopes of landing the Egypt international is the option in West Brom's loan deal which means the Baggies can sign him on a permanent deal for €5million.

However, the presence of Mohamed Salah at Anfield could yet swing the deal in their favour.
