Preston North End midfielder Adam Barton is in the sights of Liverpool.

The Daily Mail says Liverpool are weighing up a £2.5million bid for Barton.

Liverpool scouts have watched the 20-year-old extensively this season and assistant manager Sammy Lee made another check last Saturday as Barton helped Preston recover a draw against QPR.

The former Blackburn trainee, who has been capped by Northern Ireland, is rated at £5m by Preston - but they may struggle to command that figure if they go down to League One.
