According to Marca, Liverpool are eyeing up a move for Real Madrid winger Denis Cheryshev.

The 24-year-old is currently enjoying a very fruitful spell on loan at Villarreal, which has put Brendan Rodgers on red alert. Cheryshev has been one of the standout players in La Liga this season, racking up four goals and nine assists for The Yellow Submarine.

Villareal will be doing everything in their power to keep the Russian at the Estadio El Madrigal, but the potential €30m reported price tag may put Liverpool in the driving seat.

Brendan Rodgers side, who were tipped for another title challenge after going so close last year, have endured an extremely disappointing season. The Reds currently sit sixth in the Premier League table, seven points off Manchester United who occupy the last Champions League spot.

Rodgers is expected to spend big in the summer, and Denis Cheryshev could be on his way to Anfield.
