Liverpool legend urges Rodgers to get unhappy Spaniard signed

Liverpool have joined Arsenal in the race for Asier Illarramendi, according to the TalkSport website.

Illarramendi has struggled to nail down a first-team spot at the Santiago Bernabeu since arriving at Real Madrid from Real Sociedad for £25m in 2013.

That has alerted clubs in the Premier League, with Arsenal and Arsene Wenger long-term admirers of the Spaniard.

However, Liverpool are now vying for Illarramendi’s signature after ex-Reds midfielder Xabi Alonso urged the club to sign him. © 2017 Frontier Theme
