Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers is keeping tabs on Arsenal defender Carl Jenkinson, according to Metro.
The Englishman is currently on a loan deal at West Ham United and will return to Emirates at the end of the season.
The 23-year-old has been impressing at the Upton Park, he has made 25 appearances in the Premier League so far this term.
The Gunners have no plans to keep the player and with West Ham interested in his services they are certainly going to offload him permanently.
Liverpool have also joined the race, as per the latest reports. The media claim that the Reds could beat the Hammers if they take the interest seriously.

The Sun reported that the Reds manager is keen to bolster his defensive area. Also, current right-back Glen Johnson is said to be on his way out of Anfield this summer.
Jenkinson has no place at Emirates as Arsenal have already developed a new star Hector Bellerin for the right back role. The Spanish youngster has been playing tremendously in the absence of Mathieu Debuchy.
Bellerin has been eyed by Barcelona for the summer window as Daniel Alves’ replacement. Alves is being targeted by many Premier League sides including Liverpool, Manchester United and Arsenal.
Liverpool recently entered the race to sign the Brazilian on a free summer deal.
