Liverpool could battle the likes of Chelsea and Arsenal for Real Madrid defender Alvaro Arbeloa, reports The Daily Star.
Arbeloa, of course, spent two and a half years at Anfield before leaving the club for the Bernabeu in 2009, however it now appears that the Spanish ace could make a return to the Premier League in this transfer window.
Liverpool may have a battle on their hands in order to bring the Spanish ace back to Anfield, however, with their Premier League rivals Arsenal and Chelsea also interested in his services.
It remains to be seen as to whether the Premier League trio step up their interest in the experienced defender, but he'd certainly prove a reliable asset for the interested clubs. It appears, then, that the former Liverpool man is on the lookout for first-team action, with appearances hard to come by at the La Liga giants.
The same report has suggested that the player would rather sign a new deal with Real, but may have to move in order to play more regularly in the up coming season.
Reds boss Brendan Rodgers is seemingly determined to improve his squad ahead of the new season. Liverpool may have lost Uruguayan superstar Luis Suarez to Spanish giants Barcelona in this window, but they have splashed the cash in the last month or so.
The trio of Rickie Lambert, Adam Lallana and Dejan Lovren have all joined the Merseyside outfit from Southampton, whilst Rodgers has also completed deals for Divock Origi, Emre Can and Lazar Markovic, as the Reds embark upon a Champions League campaign.
It appears, though, that Rodgers could further add to his side ahead of the new campaign, with defensive recruits seemingly a priority. Liverpool fans will be hoping the club improve at the back next term after errors cost them the league title in 2013/14.
The Reds will be desperate to go one better next season after flourishing under Rodgers, but they will have to do it with the added pressure of elite European football.
