Crossing the Stanley Park divide is never the easiest thing to do, though even the most ardent of Liverpool fans in the Transfer Tavern this evening have welcomed reports linking the Reds with a move for a former Everton player.
According to a Spanish journalist, the Reds will have scouts in attendance as Valencia take on Europa League semi-final opponents Villarreal this Sunday.
While the Yellow Submarine will no doubt be of interest to the Reds with the second leg of their crunch clash next week, it is claimed representatives will run the rule over Los Che star Shkodran Mustafi.
The German defender progressed through the youth ranks with the Toffees upon leaving in 2012 after barely getting a look in at Goodison Park.
Since, the 24-year old has gone to establish himself as one of the top defenders in La Liga, as well as winning the World Cup with Germany in 2014.
Such is the nature of his impressive form, the Reds are believed to be keen on bringing him back to Merseyside as they look to improve their defensive ranks.
Is Mustafi the kind of player Liverpool need right now? Would he improve their defence?
