Anfield club see either Stamford Bridge or Turk Telekom Arena players as next stage of rebuilding.
Liverpool manager Kenny Dalgish will attempt to sign either Chelsea’s Florent Malouda or Galatasary’s Arda Turan in the summer.
The Scot realises his team need more width and wants a player to supply plenty of crosses for target-man Andy Carroll.
Dalglish sees either player as good enough but any move depends on Chelsea’s transfer ambitions.
The West London club have also been linked with a move for Turan and if they sign the Turkey international it will allow Malouda to leave and for Liverpool to pounce.
But the Reds will make a move for the 24-year-old anyway, who has his heart set on a move to the Premier League.
“He can only go to one of the top five clubs in the Premier League,” said Turan’s representative Ahmet Bulut.
“If he gets an offer from one of them, then of course he will want to play there.”
Bidding for either player is likely to start around the £15million mark.
