Liverpool are ready to make a £27m move for Chilean attacker Alexis Sanchez on the back of his World Cup heroics against Australia, according to reports from The Metro.

The Barcelona star shone for his nation against the Soceroos in their opening game of the tournament, scoring one and setting up another in the 3-1 win.

Reds boss Brendan Rodgers was rumoured to have been interested in the South American ace prior to the competition, and it is now understood that scouts from the club were watching him against the Aussies.

His all-action showing is believed to have convinced the Merseysiders of his abilities, with a £27m offer now on the cards.

Reports indicate that Barca are willing to cash in on the 25-year-old as they plot a major summer overhaul, with some rumours suggesting that Juventus are closing in on his signature.

Manchester United are also in the battle, but Liverpool’s Champions League status may well give them the edge.

Rodgers has already signed Rickie Lambert and Emre Can, and is also watching Southampton’s Adam Lallana.

    Sanchez looks pure class, this would give us 4 quality attackers who all have different benefits for the team. If this could happen along with the few defenders required it would then be a case of who we release and how much we get for them to strengthen the midfield and wide positions as our current squad is thin on numbers.
