The Reds have been linked with an interest before, with scouts reportedly having been sent to watch the 25-year-old back in September

Liverpool and West Ham are keeping close tabs on Sassuolo striker Gregoire Defrel, according to Gazzamercato.

The 25-year-old has impressed for the Serie A side this term and his performances have caught the eye of the Premier League duo.

With goals drying up, Jurgen Klopp’s Reds would prefer a January swap as they look to improve their attacking options, though Sassuolo are unlikely to let the forward leave midway through the season.

West Ham, on the other hand, are looking further into the future, and are weighing up the merits of a summer move, when Defrel is more likely to be sold.
