Anfield side register interest in San Siro midfielder.
Liverpool have reportedly offered £9.5million for out-of-favour Wesley Sneijder while Manchester United and Spurs remain on high alert.
The Inter Milan ace has been left feeling isolated at the San Siro after snubbing a suggested annual pay cut of £1.6m.
Liverpool are first out of the blocks, according to Gazzetta dello Sport’s front page, while their Premier League rivals are confident little more than £11m will secure a deal.

It would be quite some coup if Liverpool could pull off the signing of Inter Milan playmaker Wesley Sneijder. The 28 year old does seem likely to leave the San Siro side sooner rather than later after making it abundantly clear that he wants out after being frozen out of the first team picture.
Brendan Rodgers could well do with some added midfield creativity and this may be all the more relevant in the medium term if Nuri Sahin elects to return to Real Madrid on completion of his loan spell.
Though Steven Gerrard has been a consistent performer over the past six months for both club and country he is not as advanced an option as he once was. There are few goals in Liverpool’s midfield at present and Sneijder would be the ideal man to fill the void.
If Inter Milan are so keen to rid the club’s balance sheet of Sneijder’s £200k a week wages that they are willing to accept offers as low as £9.5m then there will be an abundance of bids for the former Real Madrid and Ajax man.
Clearly as Man United and Tottenham are more likely to be able to offer the talented playmaker Champions League football then they would be more likely to lure Sneijder but don’t rule out Liverpool from the running entirely.
If the Dutchman feels that Liverpool are on the up and have long term potential then perhaps Brendan Rodgers can sell the idea of a move to the Merseyside club.
