Stoke City are hoping to land Liverpool youngster Sheyi Ojo on loan as part of the deal to take Xherdan Shaqiri to Anfield.
Goal reports that the Potters have enquired about taking the player temporarily, with Gary Rowett preparing for life after Shaqiri.
Previous reports have suggested that the recently-relegated side would look to get a Reds player on loan in return, that player now appears to be Ojo.
The youngster spent last season on loan at Fulham and has previously had spells at Wolves and Wigan.
Ojo was unable to hold down a regular spot in the Fulham side last season, but he did feature 22 times during their promotion campaign.
Jurgen Klopp has a wealth of youngsters available to him this summer but Ojo does not appear to be part of his plans for the first-team squad going forward.
He would provide some Championship experience to the Stoke squad who are hoping to secure promotion back to the top flight at the first time of asking.
