Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers is monitoring the situation of Real Madrid attacking midfielder Mesut Ozil as the German is becoming out of favour at the Bernabeu, according to the Sunday Mirror.
The arrival of Luka Modric has forced Ozil further down the pecking order in the Spanish capital and Real gaffer Jose Mourinho has been forced to sit down with the German international to discuss his poor start to the new season.
Ozil is under contract until 2016, but he won’t want to become a second string player and so a move away from Madrid next summer may well be conceivable and Liverpool have been tracking Ozil since his Werder Bremen days.
Liverpool currently have another Madrid midfielder on loan and Nuri Sahin is starting to show his class on Merseyside, proving Mourinho’s decision to only let him out on loan a shrewd one.
When Sahin returns to Los Blancos at the end of the season, it may well see the end of Ozil’s Real Madrid career and you can be sure that Rodgers and Liverpool will be interested.
