LIVERPOOL are targeting a move for former Chelsea star Joao Felix.
The Portugal international is being eyed as a potential replacement for Mohamed Salah if he leaves Anfield.
Salah is a target for Saudi champions Al-Ittihad, who have offered the Egyptian a five-year deal worth £100million-per-season.
The 31-year-old has reportedly told Liverpool he wants the move and the Reds are now lining up a replacement.
According to A Bola, Felix is a possible target and could be available for £60million.
However, Liverpool would face competition to sign him from Benfica, Barcelona and Al-Hilal, the report adds.

Felix spent the second half of last season on loan at Chelsea, scoring four goals in 16 Premier League appearances.
He has struggled for opportunities since returning to Atletico Madrid.
The forward has yet to play this season and was left out of the squad for last weekend's clash with Real Betis.
Salah has remained in the Liverpool team despite his links with an exit, though.
