£3m Malaga playmaker on Liverpool radar

Liverpool are being linked with a summer move for Malaga midfielder Manuel Iturra.

The Daily Express claims Reds boss Brendan Rodgers is ‘weighing up’ an offer for the 28-year-old, with the report claiming Manuel Pellegrini will listen to offers in the region of £3million for his player.

Iturra, who has appeared 38 times for Chile, has been in-and-out of the Malaga side this season, making 18 appearances. However, he’s yet to score in the current La Liga campaign.

And, with reports in The Sunday People over the weekend claiming Iturra will not sign a new contract with the nouveaux-riche club, the possibility of a move at the end of the campaign now seems realistic.

Whether it’s a switch to Anfield remains to be seen, but Rodgers proved in January that he’s willing to gamble on players from across the continent, with Philippe Coutinho joining Liverpool from Inter Milan in the final days of the window.

Were Iturra to join the Reds, then he'd fight for first team chances alongside captain Steven Gerrard, ex-Swansea star Joe Allen and Brazilian international Lucas Leiva. Youngsters Jordan Henderson and Jonjo Shelvey are also pushing for senior opportunities.
