Liverpool are willing to meet Valencia midfielder Dani Parejo’s buyout clause this summer, according to Superdeporte.

The Spanish newspaper claim that Reds boss Brendan Rodgers has identified Parejo as a top target and is prepared to pay Valencia’s full €25m (£20.42m) asking price.

Liverpool will embark on their first Champions League campaign since 2009 next season and Rodgers is desperate to bolster his squad in preparation.

Parejo’s versatility make him an attractive proposition for the Anfield club. The 25-year-old can play anywhere in midfield, be it in an attacking or defensive capacity, either out wide or in the centre of the pitch.

He has scored five goals and provided eight assists in 41 La Liga and Europa League appearances this season.

Parejo began his senior career at Real Madrid, who loaned him out to English Championship outfit Queens Park Rangers in 2008.

He left the Bernabeu permanently in August 2009 when he joined Getafe in a swap deal that saw Esteban Granero move to Real.

After scoring five goals in 42 league outings for Getafe, Parejo signed for Valencia for a transfer fee of £5m in July 2011.

He has yet to be capped at senior international level, but he represented Spain’s Under-21 side on 19 occasions, scoring five goals.
