Liverpool trying to land Real Madrid attacker before transfer deadline

The January transfer window is only hours away from closing and there are almost always big surprises pulled of in the final minutes – and Liverpool could be poised to pull off one of the biggest ones yet with a late push to sign Real Madrid winger Denis Cheryshev.

According to AS [per the Metro], Liverpool have pulled ahead of Premier League rivals Manchester United, Arsenal and Chelsea in the race for the 25-year-old Russian attacker and are trying to sign him in the final hours of the transfer window.

Cheryshev has made barely half a dozen appearances for the La Liga giants this season after an impressive loan spell with Villareal last year. The Russian winger has been a member of Real Madrid since 2002 and was a rising star on the Real Madrid B team.

Liverpool are in serious need of help at winger after losing Philippe Coutinho for the foreseeable future at a critical point in their season.
