Villarreal striker Luciano Vietto could complete a move to Liverpool this summer, according to the player's agent.
As reported by the Express, Jorge Cysterpiller, who represents the 21-year-old hot-shot, has insisted that there is a great deal of competition for the player's services, with Spanish giants Real Madrid also interested in landing him.
In fact, he's also suggested that two Bundesliga clubs are interested in the Argentine, with there being a possibility that he will look to move on in the summer transfer window.
The young forward has produced the goods this term, having found the net on 16 occasions in all competitions this term, so would no doubt prove to be a good coup for Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers.
And it certainly appears that the Merseyside outfit have a chance of bringing the talented La Liga ace to England.
On his way out?
Speaking to AS about the striker, Cysterpiller said: “We know that a lot of big clubs are watching Luciano Vietto.
"There is a lot of competition for him.
"He could sign for Liverpool, we know that he is admired by the Reds, as well as Real Madrid and two Bundesliga clubs.
"I think he could leave Villarreal in the summer.”
It now remains to be seen as to whether Liverpool step up their interest in the forward anytime soon, but they may well want to act quickly if they're going to land him this summer.
Liverpool are in need
There's no doubt about it, Liverpool are certainly in need of improvement in the attacking department. In truth, the duo of Mario Balotelli and Rickie Lambert have failed to impress this term, with versatile forward Raheem Sterling often being used in the striker's role.
With Belgian youngster Divock Origi set to link up with the club at the end of the season, Reds boss Rodgers is clearly planning for the future, so should look to bring Vietto to the club.
In fact, Vietto would probably prove a great option than either of Lambert or Balotelli almost immediately. 16 goals domestically and on the European scene is not bad going for a 21-year-old, so he seems worth the gamble.
