Everton loanee Royston Drenthe is ready to cross the city to join Liverpool this summer, according to the Sun on Sunday.

The 25-year-old Real Madrid winger is out of contract at the Santiago Bernabeu at the end of the season, and sees his future away from Spain.

However, the Toffees' precarious financial situation means that they are unable to meet his £80,000-a-week wage demands so a permanent move to Goodison Park seems unlikely.

Liverpool manager Kenny Dalglish has been impressed with Drenthe's form for Everton this campaign, and is ready to offer him the chance to move to Anfield in June.

Having already spent close to £115million on new signings since returning to the Reds hotseat in January 2011, Dalglish is expected to be busy again in this summer's transfer market, as he looks to continue strengthening his squad.

Despite winning the Carling Cup this season, and confirming their place in the FA Cup final in May with victory over their Merseyside rivals at Wembley yesterday, Liverpool's season has been a disappointing one in terms of Premier League form.

Currently sitting 8th in the table - a whopping 36 points behind leaders Manchester United - it's clear that the Reds need to continue adding to their squad in order to return the club to the glory days.
