Liverpool are currently monitoring Antonio Valencia and could make a bid to take him away from Manchester United in the upcoming transfer window, Metro reports.

After a chaotic season for the Red Devils, the Ecuadorian winger could make a switch to join Brendan Rodgers’ side with his future role still unknown since the appointment of Louis van Gaal.

The incoming manager has already made it clear he needed to overhaul the current squad and Valencia could be one of the players to face the axe.

With only one year remaining on his current contract, United may want to make some extra funds from his sale rather than to let him play out his deal.

Rodgers believes that the 28-year-old attacker is versatile enough to add some extra reinforcements into his right flank in order to keep the team fresh for both domestic and European football.

The Ecuadorian moved to Old Trafford following a £16 million transfer from Wigan Athletic back in 2009, but due to his recent performances, the Reds manager is aiming to secure him for far less.
