Liverpool are closing on the signing of Real Madrid’s Spanish midfielder Esteban Granero, according to The
Kenny Dalglish has been looking into the possibility of bringing the Spaniard in on a loan deal until the end of the season. Granero has struggled for playing time in the Real Madrid midfield this season, starting just nine games in all competitions, and finding his chances limited by the form of Xabi Alonso. He would be a versatile acquisition for the Merseyside club, with his ability to play either on the wing or in a more attacking central position.
Dalglish hopes that Granero could be tempted to relocate to England by the prospect of more regular first team football, and also hopes that the move might bring out the best in misfiring frontman Andy Carroll. The loan move would also be favoured by the club, who are reluctant to sanction as much lavish spending considering the amount that Dalglish has already invested in the team.
