The left-back quartet are on the radar of the Premier League giants as they step up plans to strengthen their squad in the summer transfer window.
Liverpool will battle Arsenal and a string of other leading Premier League clubs including Tottenham for Chilwell, 19, in the summer, while the Merseysiders are also closely monitoring Guerreiro, 22, Willems, 21, and Hector, 25.
Manager Jurgen Klopp has no plans to sell Moreno, who has had two mixed seasons at Anfield following his arrival from Sevilla, but is keen on competition for the 23-year-old.
