Anfield side hope to sign Bernabeu midfielder.
Liverpool are to push on with efforts to sign Real Madrid midfielder Asier Illarramendi and are apparently confident of snapping up the underused Bernabeu star according to the Daily Star.
The 25 year old defensive midfielder has struggled to retain a foothold in Carlo Ancelotti’s first team set-up and could well be set for a summer exit.
Real Madrid are demanding £15m for the former Real Sociedad man but Liverpool are only willing to bid £12m but given there is little between the two side’s valuations one imagines a compromise could be found.
Illara cost Real Madrid £23m just under two years ago but has become something of a bit part player at the Spanish giants, making just nine La Liga starts this term, and may be open to a move to the Premier League.
With Steven Gerrard set to leave in the summer Brendan Rodgers could well do with a fresh central midfield addition.
