Liverpool are ready to take the next step in their pursuit of Rodrigo De Paul, according to reports in Italy.
The 26-year-old midfielder is seen as potential replacement for Georginio Wijnaldum.
Udinese have publicly admitted they could lose De Paul this summer.
They are seeking £30m for the Argentine, and Liverpool are preparing their cash.
Wijnaldum is set to leave Anfield at the expiration of his contract this summer.
