Liverpool are reportedly monitoring the progress of Oostende and Cape Verde midfielder Kenny Rocha Santos.
The 22-year-old played the full 90 minutes of Cape Verde’s 1-0 win over Ethiopia in their Africa Cup of Nations opener on Sunday.
And now the Premier League giants have joined Porto and Feyenoord in tracking the midfielder, according to Dutch outlet Voetbal.

The report claims that the Belgian side Oostende rate him at just €10million (£8m) and he could therefore be a cheap option for the Reds.
Liverpool have been linked with a move for Brighton midfielder Yves Bissouma for some time but they have reportedly slapped a £50m price-tag on him.
The Seagulls are under no pressure to sell their prized asset but their stance may change if an offer of around £50m is made, according to The Athletic.

When asked if any clubs have spoken to him about the 25-year-old, Brighton boss Graham Potter said: ‘Nope’.
He added: ‘Who knows. It’s the transfer window, you never know.
‘We are comfortable with where we are at, we know the situation. From my perspective, I will just try to help him when he comes back from the AFCON and help him get back to his best. When he does that, he is a top player.
‘We want to keep all our players but I also understand the way the market is and the way football is. We understand where we are in the football football pyramid.
‘You know that things can happen but my expectation is that we will have a strong squad come the end of the transfer window.’
