Liverpool Ramp Up Interest In Real Madrid Star

Posted by

Liverpool are tracking the Spaniard, who is almost certain to leave.

Asier Illarramendi made the move to Real Madrid after leaving boyhood club Real Sociedad in a costly €32.2m move, yet the defensive midfielder has struggled to establish a first-team place since his arrival, and Liverpool look set to pounce, according to El Confidencial.

Even with injury to Luka Modric, the 24-year-old hasn’t been given many opportunity by Carlo Ancelotti, having been handed just five La Liga starts.

He is beginning to recognise that a summer departure is needed to reignite his career.

Illarramendi was brought in as a replacement to Xabi Alonso, and the former Anfield star has told the Spaniard to join Liverpool ahead of Arsenal.

However, the move will likely depend on Brendan Rodgers’ men securing a spot in the Champions League next season. With the Reds flying-high in the second half of the season, such success is very much a possibility.
