Liverpool are reportedly poised for a transfer battle with Real Madrid in the race to sign Yann M'Vila.
The French international midfielder has been on the radar of a string of clubs in recent months, and Liverpool boss Roy Hodgson is one of the interested parties in the player.
Real Madrid boss Jose Mourinho is also thought to be keen on the player, with the Special One ready to go toe-to-toe with Liverpool should they make the first move this month.
French Football magazine reports that Damien Comolli, Director of Football strategy at Anfield, has made an 'active enquiry' with regards to the Rennes player's availability.
Recently appointed to his position at Liverpool, Comolli has reportedly taken an interest in a number of young French starlets, although the link to M'Vila appears stronger than most.
The Ligue 1 outfit are keen to hold-on to their prized asset, although an offer in the region of €15 million from Liverpool could be too good for Les Rouges et Noirs to turn down.
Hodgson, reportedly fighting for his job at Anfield, has money to spend following the artival of NESV as the new owners on Merseyside at the end of the summer.
With roughly £35 million at his disposal and the backing of Comolli, a move for M'Vila is a realistic possibility for Liverpool despite Madrid also making enquiries about the player.
