Liverpool edge even closer to summer signing of Spaniard!

Liverpool appear a step closer to securing the transfer of Asier Illarramendi, as Real Madrid are reportedly lining up his replacement.

The Spanish giants have joined the race to sign William Carvalho, according to the Daily Mail, which could force Illarramendi to look elsewhere for first-team opportunities.

Reds boss Brendan Rodgers is still keen to bolster his squad this season and sees Illarramendi as an ideal signing, if he can get him for the right price. © 2017 Frontier Theme
