Anfield side could be handed chance to bring in Bernabeu starlet on loan deal.
Liverpool have been linked with a move to sign Real Madrid youngster Alvaro Morata by Spanish source Punto Pelota.
The Spanish giants are said to be open to allowing the Spanish Under 21 international to move to Anfield on a season long spell so as to help the striker hone is trade and could perhaps use Brendan Rodgers’ interest in the Bernabeu youngster to help in their continued pursuit of want-away Uruguayan Luis Suarez.
The ever reliable Sport Witness point out that Real Madrid’s fanbase wouldn’t be happy to see a player of Morata’s undoubted potential leave on a permanent deal and yet a move to include the 20 year old on only a temporary basis would perhaps not be all that attractive to Liverpool as part of a package that would see their most effective attacking weapon leave Merseyside.
Morata has been part of the Real Madrid first team set-up for three seasons, though has predominantly featured in their ‘B’ team, and thus far hasn’t had all that much time to prove himself in the senior side and as such a loan move would at least afford the locally born youngster the chance to gain some much needed experience.
Carlo Ancelotti is reportedly looking to use Karim Benzema as his main starting striker, though clearly the purchasing of Luis Suarez could make the Italian re-think this strategry, and Gonzalo Higuain continues to be linked with a move away from the Spanish capital with both Napoli and Arsenal keen on the Argentine.
Morata impressed at the European Under 21 Championships in Israel this summer, during which he netted four times and finished as the competition’s top scorer.
Rodgers has already brought in Luis Alberto and Iago Aspas from La Liga sides Sevilla and Celta Vigo so is not averse to shopping in the Spanish top tier.
