Liverpool are reportedly ready to join Chelsea and Tottenham in the race to sign Porto midfielder Joao Moutinho.
Moutinho has been linked with a move to the Premier League for some time.
Chelsea first became keen on signing the Portugal international when Andre Villas-Boas quit Porto to take charge at Stamford Bridge last summer.
Villas-Boas was sacked by the Blues at the start of March, but it is thought the west London club are still showing interest in the attacking midfielder, who would likely cost in the region of £25million.
With AVB expected to be confirmed as Tottenham's new manager in the next few days, Spurs are in the running to sign the 25-year-old, who is seen as a possible replacement for Luka Modric, who looks set to leave White Hart Lane this summer.
And according to the Daily Mail, Liverpool are also showing interest in Moutinho, who impressed for his country at Euro 2012.
The player last month put Premiership clubs on alert by revealing he was keen on a move to England.
"Every player wants to experiment with different leagues," he said.
"Right now I'm happy because I am playing in one of the biggest in Europe. But if a good opportunity arose we'd have to see.
"The Premier League? I can only say it's one of the best leagues in the world - but I have not spoken with any club."
