LIVERPOOL teenage defender Calvin Ramsay is a loan target for Championship pair Watford and Swansea.
And he has done enough to catch the eye of Hornets boss Slaven Bilic and Swans chief Russell Martin.
Both sides are chasing promotion and believe the one-cap Scotland defender could help them.
Liverpool are reluctant to let Ramsay out even though he is still in the shadow of Trent Alexander-Arnold and his chances of a start will be slim this season.
Reds boss Jurgen Klopp has huge faith in the starlet they signed ahead of many rivals and is happy for him to stay put.
A heavy schedule of Premier League and cup games in the run-in also means he could be called upon but the Championship rivals are ready to pounce if he becomes available.
Liverpool are also in talks to extend Roberto Firmino’s contract with the Brazilian in the last six months of his deal.
It would only be a short-term extension, but Firmino is happy to stay at the club.
Meanwhile, club legend Steven Gerrard pleaded with Liverpool to sign Jude Bellingham ahead of the draw against Chelsea.
He said: “All he needs to do is send his diary to me when he’s got a free day.
“I’ll fly to Dortmund personally, take him out for a nice dinner, and we’ll talk about it!
“On the back of the World Cup, what he’s doing out in Dortmund. I’m a huge fan of him anyway. The way he comes across, the way he speaks about the game. Every time I’ve watched him he impresses me.”
