Liverpool ready summer bid for Real Madrid ace

Liverpool are preparing a summer raid for Real Madrid star Jese Rodriguez, according to reports from talkSPORT.

Jese has been heavily linked with a move away from the Santiago Bernabeu in recent weeks, with the winger finding it difficult to play on a regular basis being behind the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo and Gareth Bale in the pecking order.

His lack of playing time has thus alerted Reds manager Jurgen Klopp, who is a big fan of the Spaniard and believes he will fit in well at Anfield.

And according to Spanish source OkDiario, Klopp is ready to lure him over when the transfer window reopens this summer.

However, it is believed that the La Liga giants will demand £20million, despite Jese being surplus to requirements in Madrid.

Liverpool will also have some competition for his signature, with Premier League rivals Arsenal keen on his services.

Jese, 22, has made 20 appearances in all competitions this season, scoring three goals.
