The Merseyside giants have been keeping close tabs on the highly rated Peru international for over a year now, with the Reds having even sent scouts out to Germany to watch the centre back in action first hand during the course of the past 12 months.

And now Liverpool head coach Brendan Rodgers will have been given renewed hope in his efforts to land Zambrano after it emerged that the central defender had tuned down Frankfurt’s offer of a new contract to remain with the Bundesliga outfit beyond the end of his current deal, which expires at the climax to this campaign.

All of which now means that the 24-year-old can start to talk any interested foreign clubs now that the January transfer window has opened again for business for the year ahead of a possible lucrative Bosman-style free transfer next summer.

So far in this season the defender has managed to appear in a total of 26 matches in all competitions for Frankfurt, 16 of which have come in the league.
