Liverpool are set to go head to head with Everton in the race to sign highly rated Granada defender Guilherme Siqueira this summer, according to reports in the Daily Star.

The Merseyside giants have been trying to find a left back all summer long that can act as competition for current left-sided full back Jose Enrique at Anfield next season.

However, now it appears as though Reds head coach Brendan Rodgers is set to make a move for Brazilian Siqueira, who has been at Liga minnows Granada for the past two years, having originally signed for the Spanish outfit from Serie A side Udinese on a four-year deal in June 2011.

And in the intervening two -year period, the 27-year-old has appeared in 70 league matches for Granada, finding the back of the net on an impressive 12 occasions from his left-back berth.

But Rodgers and Liverpool know that they will face stiff competition for the full back’s signature though this summer from not just city-rivals Everton, who have also reportedly been keeping close tabs on Siqueira, but also from the likes of Spanish giants Real Madrid and Turkish champions Galatasaray.

Siqueira has a contract with Granada that runs until June 2017, with a buyout clause in that deal worth £21 million, although it is understood that his club would be willing to listen to offers in the region of £8m for their player.
