Liverpool are reportedly considering a summer swoop for Barcelona winger Jeffren.
The young Spaniard has struggled to break into the first team at the Nou Camp under manager Pep Guardiola, and Liverpool boss Kenny Dalglish could offer the player an exit from the Catalan club.
A former Spanish U21 international, Jeffren's development has stalled after graduation from the Barca B team back in 2008. With only 18 La Liga appearances to his name, the 23-year-old is now considering his options.
"It's not easy to succeed in Barcelona, but it's my dream," said Jeffren.
"If the club decides that I am not needed then it's understandable to consider my options."
The Spanish giants are thought to be chasing a fee in the region of €10 million, although SkySports reports that the club could settle for a fee in the region of €8 million.
Reports in the press in Spain claim Liverpool have taken a keen interested in the player, and are currently considering their transfer options for the end of the season.
Contracted to Barcelona until 2012, the Merseysiders should be able to negotiate a knock-down price for the player, who would add to the attacking options at Anfield.
Liverpool have been linked with a string of wingers and strikers in recent weeks, and Jeffren has the ability to play in both these positions should Dalglish look to utilise the 23-year-old in either spot.
NESV, the club's owners, showed in January that they are willing to back the Liverpool manager financially, and will look to do so again at the end of the season as 'King Kenny' targets a number of additions.
