Liverpool are being tipped to make an improved bid to sign Real Madrid midfielder Asier Illarramendi this summer, according to sources in Spain.

The former Real Sociedad man has not managed to establish himself as a regular since moving to the Bernabeu, but looks a player capable of strengthening most sides around Europe.
