Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers is determined to make more signings before the end of the transfer window and has earmarked Real Madrid’s Denis Cheryshev as his next target.

The Russian winger spent last season on loan at Villarreal and impressed, and now Rodgers wants to bring him to Anfield with competition for places fierce at the Bernabeu in Cheryshev’s preferred position.

He faces a challenge for playing time up against the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo and Gareth Bale, so Real Madrid may be willing to let him depart.

Reports in Spain, echoed by the Daily Telegraph in England, claim that a Liverpool offer of £14.9m would match Madrid’s asking price - with the Reds keen to offer the full amount and complete the deal quickly.

Having sold Raheem Sterling for £49m to Manchester City, Liverpool are in need of adding to their stock of wide players. Divock Origi, who scored in Liverpool’s 2-0 friendly victory last night, can play out wide or through the middle while the other goalscorer against HJK Helsinki, Coutinho, can do the same.

Adam Lallana and Lazar Markovic are similarly versatile.

But the Reds lack an out and out wide-man, something that the Russian international Cheryshev can provide.

Real Madrid could insist on a buy-back clause, something they’ve done in the past on deals for promising young players. Alvaro Morata and Dani Carvajal both left the Bernabeu despite showing promise with Madrid including buy-back agreements as part of the transfer agreements.

Carvajal did in fact return to the Bernabeu after moving to Bundesliga side Bayer Leverkusen.

What do you think Liverpool fans - would a move for Cheryshev be the right call?
