Liverpool are reportedly plotting a summer swoop for Valencia winger Pablo Hernandez.

The Mirror initially reported that the Reds had been alerted to the potential availability of the Spaniard and now suggests interest from Merseyside is 'expected' in the 25-year-old.

Liverpool director of football strategy Damien Comolli is thought to be keen on Hernandez after admitting that the Anfield club currently lack penetrating wide options.

Hernandez would certainly provide Liverpool with more natural width and - valued at €17 million - would be an interesting addition to Kenny Dalglish's squad.

More likely, however, is a Liverpool move for Aston Villa attacker Ashley Young - with both Dalglish and Comolli known to be admirers of the 25-year-old.


However, according to the Mirror, Liverpool will have to battle with Manchester United in order to sign Young in what is likely to be a busy summer transfer window for the former.

Liverpool owners New England Sports Ventures (NESV) are expected to make their mark on the transfer market again when the window reopens in June as they look to further enhance their playing squad.

NESV spent £58 million to bring Andy Carroll and Luis Suarez to Anfield in January and are likely to invest heavily again before the start of the new season.
