Brendan Rodgers is looking to further strengthen his Anfield attack having completed a £4m move to sign Southampton veteran Rickie Lambert and may see Sanchez as a possible third prong of an strike-force that would of course include Luis Suarez and Daniel Sturridge.
Sanchez struggled in his first two seasons at Barcelona but was a big success in 2013/14, scoring 21 goals and providing 15 assists in all competitions, however incoming boss Luis Enrique is set to conduct something of a clear-out and the former Udinese man seems surplus to requirements.
A successful move for Sanchez would be a big statement of intent from the Merseyside outfit and Rodgers wants a deal signed and sealed before the World Cup starts, no doubt concerned that a good display could see his valuation rise whilst also attracting new suitors.
