Liverpool are being linked with a move for Villarreal winger Santi Cazorla after goalkeeper Jose Reina recommended the player, according to reports.

The Spanish international has been linked with a move to Anfield in the past, and now reports in The People claim Cazorla has received the backing of the Reds' current stopper.

With 33 international caps to his name, the former Recreativo star doesn't lack experience and has also represented the Yellow Submarine in both the Europa and Champions League.

A £28 million minimum fee release clause could threaten to be a major stumbling block for Liverpool, although it's claimed that £18 million would be enough to land the 26-year-old.

Dalglish has set Liverpool transfer sights on a winger this summer, with Stewart Downing, Eden Hazard and Charles N'Zogbia all reported to be Merseyside targets during the transfer window.

After securing the addition of Jordan Henderson, the Scot appears ready to spend big once again, and is being backed to the hilt financially by Liverpool owners Fenway Sports Group.


With Reina, a former keeper at El Madrigal, acting as an ally within the Liverpool camp, Cazorla has emerged as a legitimate target for the Anfield outfit.

Despite plans to buy British where possible, Damien Comolli is believed to be an admirer of the player and will be working alongside Dalglish to bring the best possible players to Liverpool before the season starts again in August.
