Liverpool are looking at two players to replace Raheem Sterling, who has been heavily linked with an exit to Manchester City in recent weeks, according to the Express.
City made a second bid of £40million to sign Sterling on Wednesday, and although the offer is expected to be rejected once again by the Reds, the Sky Blues will continue pushing for a transfer.
Sterling became a subject of interest for the Citizens following the England international’s contract standoff with Liverpool, in which he snubbed a salary of £100,000-a-week earlier this year.
And with Sterling expected to leave, Kop manager Brendan Rodgers has therefore identified two players he will be targeting to replace the 20-year-old in the upcoming summer window.
The first option is Monaco ace Lucas Ocampos, who had a brilliant campaign while on loan at Marseille last season.
And the Reds will also continue their chase for Dnipro’s Yevhen Konoplyanka, who will be leaving the club on a free transfer after scoring eight goals and supplying seven assists in 42 games.
