Anfield side keen on Nou Camp back up.
Liverpool plan to continue to add to their Anfield squad and are preparing a bid for Barcelona attacker Jeffren.
The Merseyside club are believed to be set to complete the signing of Aston Villa winger Stewart Downing and have already snapped up Jordan Henderson and Charlie Adam and Kenny Dalglish is thought to be keen to beef up his attacking options whilst planning for the future and sees the young Nou Camp youngster as an ideal signing.
Venezuelan born Jeffren is set to leave Barcelona just under five years since his debut for the Catalan club. The adaptable youngster has failed to win a regular spot in the club’s first team both under Frank Rijkaard and then Pep Guardiola.
Dalglish is looking to bring in extra attacking options to give his squad more strength in depth and given the fact that Frenchman David N’Gog has failed to make an impact and Dirk Kuyt has been converted into a wide player, the addition of another attacker makes a great deal of sense.
Barcelona are after a quick sale and some sources believes that means Pep Guardiola could accept as little as
€7m (£6.1m) for the youngster.
Though far from being a first team regular at the Nou Camp, Jeffren has found himself becoming more of a regular presence in Guardiola’s plans of late, making 31 apperances over the past two seasons across all competitions.
Damien Comolli has done business with Barcelona before, helping bring Giovani dos Santos to Tottenham and whilst that move has not worked out all that well it was deemed something of a shock when it took place. This has led some to believe that Liverpool are leading the chase for Jeffren.
The speedy attacker also fits the criteria of Liverpool’s new owners who are willing to invest in youthful additions hence their forking out of funds to sign Luis Suarez, Andy Carroll and Jordan Henderson, all 23 years or age or under.
Jeffren has just returned from Spanish Under 21 duty where he helped his country to the European Championship title in Denmark.
