Liverpool target Sevilla winger

Liverpool are planning a rebuilding programme in the summer, after their title challenge this season faltered.

Their defeat to Everton in the Merseyside derby on Saturday was not only the first time they had lost to their neighbours at home for 22  years, but it was also their fourth successive defeat at Anfield, which had been almost impregnable for so long.

They are now 19 points behind leaders Manchester City, and not even guaranteed to finish in the Champions League places.

One area where they want to strengthen is attack, and they have identified Sevilla winger Lucas Ocampos as one of their top targets.

The Argentine has a release clause of £56 million, and the Reds may have to include Takumi Minamino in part-exchange. The Japanese international joined Southampton on loan in January, and scored for them in the Premier League earlier on Saturday against Chelsea.

Sevilla are interested in Minamino, but Liverpool would still need to pay a fair bit of the fee for Ocampos in cash.
