Liverpool are one of a handful of clubs being linked with a move for Ghanaian youngster Daniel Opare.

The Real Madrid full-back is recognised as one of the brightest young talents to come out of Africa, and Liverpool boss Rafa Benitez is hoping to capitalise on a loan opportunity for the 19-year-old.

Picked up by the Galacticos in 2007, Opare was making progress in the club's B team and was hoping to force his way into first team recognition this season before injury struck.

The Bernabeu outfit are keen to keep hold of a potential prize asset, but are reportedly ready to loan the youngster out for a season to gain some valuable first team experience.

"His injury means he will not be considered for Real's first-team but he hopes a spell on loan somewhere could help him come to the attention of Jose Mourinho," the player's representative, Chris Nathaniel, told

"Daniel is now considering his options carefully as he has a number of options and he is already looking forward to pre-season training - wherever that may be."

A host of clubs across Europe are taking an interest in Opare, with Wolfsburg, Lyon, Club Brugge and PSV Eindhoven just four clubs reportedly showing an interest.

West Ham United are also keen to bring the player to the Premier League, and could also provide the Anfield side with some competition for the versatile defender.
