Liverpool are still hoping to land Aston Villa defender Jordan Amavi, according to reports in his native France.
The 22-year-old arrived at Villa Park a year ago in a £7.7million deal from Nice but missed most of the season after suffering a knee injury in November.
Villa’s relegation from the Premier League has thrown the left-back’s future into doubt and Liverpool had emerged as potential admirers of the 22-year-old.
And, according to Le Parisien, the Reds maintain an interest in signing Amavi this summer and are currently preparing a bid.
Southampton and Lyon are also keeping close tabs on the situation with Villa hoping for a bidding war between the interest parties to ensure they receive the highest price.
