Reports from Spain claim that Rafa Benitez has set his sights on EspanyolÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Ã‚Â£8million-rated winger Albert Riera.
Benitez is rumored to be a keen admirer of the 26-year-old Spain international.
As part of the deal, Liverpool will try to give them Argentine Argie Sebastian Leto, who joined the Reds in 2007.
A club official at Espanyol said: “It is certain that we are interested in Leto, but our idea is to prepare a separate deal for Riera.”
Reira, who was on loan at Manchester City two years ago, have also caught the interest of Spurs, Blackburn and Fiorentina.
