Reds keen to bring Peruvian starlet to Anfield.
Liverpool are said to be weighing up a move for talented young Real Madrid playmaker Cristian Benavente this summer, according to Football Direct News.
Reports in Spain are suggesting that that the highly-rated teenager has caught the eye of Brendan Rodgers this season, and he has subsequently sent his scouting team out to Madrid to have him inspected close up.
Since then, glowing reports have been sent back to Merseyside and the data is now in the hands of Liverpool’s technical staff, who will asses whether to make a concrete offer for the player when the transfer window re-opens in the summer.
However, Real are said to be torn over what to do with the 19-year-old, as he is one of the leading eading operators in the La Liga heavyweights’ Castilla academy, impressing on a regular basis in the second tier of Spanish football.
Should a permanent transfer not be an option, a loan deal for him to spend the campaign with the Reds may be on the cards instead, as Madrid coaches want him to gain some significant first team experience.
