Liverpool have reportedly set their transfer sights on Spanish international winger Santi Cazorla.

The 26-year-old Villarreal midfielder has made an impressive start to the season with the La Liga outfit, and now Liverpool boss Roy Hodgson is keen to bring the player to Anfield in a bid to strengthen his attacking options.

Barcelona and Real Madrid have both been linked with the player in the past, who has earned 29 caps for his country in their most successful period ever.

Liverpool Director of Football strategy, Damien Comolli, is thought to have played a role in highlighting the player as a potential addition to the Merseysiders, with the former Spurs guru looking to bring high-quality foreign imports to the club at the first opportunity.

Spanish daily AS claims that the Reds will look to tempt Carzola into a switch to the Barclays Premier League, with the Liverpool chief looking to use Fernando Torres and Jose Reina as part of the negotiations.

The arrival of new owners NESV at Anfield has seen the club linked with a handful of attacking players in recent weeks, and Liverpool boss Hodgson is thought to have a shortlist of 'five or six' players heading into the opening month of 2011.

A transfer war chest in the region of £35 million has been touted, and Cazorla now appears to be one of the targets with the funds after the Spanish reports confirmed he was a 'prime transfer target'.

Liverpool will have to pay a fee in the region of €10 million to prize the player away from the Yellow Submarine.
