Liverpool see Benfica fullback Maxi Pereira as Johnson replacement
Record says Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers is keen on bringing in Pereira, who would cost around £7.5m.
Pereira is being considered as a long-term replacement for Glen Johnson.
England defender Johnson has just 12 months remaining on his deal though, and will have to accept a reduction in wages if he wants to stay at Anfield.
