According to the Liverpool Echo, Rafa Benitez is ready to turn his attention to Albert Riera as hopes of bringing Gareth Barry to Anfield seem to have ebbed significantly.
The Espanyol winger has been on Rafa BenitezÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s radar for some time and is considered to be a suitable choice to fill the RedsÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ troublesome left wing spot.
The 26-year old has already made it clear that he would relish a move to Anfield if Liverpool were to make a concrete offer for his services. A bid could now be imminent with the RedsÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ move for Barry now being water under the bridge.
The Liverpool board refused to meet Aston VillaÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Ã‚Â£18 million valuation for the English midfielder, believing it to be far in excess of what the player is worth.
