Liverpool move ahead of Arsenal in race for Real Madrid star

Under fire Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers is lining up a move for Real Madrid winger Denis Cheryshev, according to reports in the Metro.

The Russian attacker has struggled to impose himself on first team proceedings at the Bernabeu, with a host of big names to jostle for a position with.

He’s previously played for La Liga sides such as Sevilla and Villarreal, joining them on loan deals after graduating from the Madrid side’s youth system.

The 24-year old has to contend with the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo, Gareth Bale and James Rodriguez for a spot in Rafa Benitez’s starting eleven, so a deal could be on the cards.

A Russian international, Cheryshev has previously been linked with the likes of Arsenal, but Brendan Rodgers could be tempted into making a January move for the player.

The Reds have only Jordon Ibe as a natural first team winger, after selling Raheem Sterling to Manchester City in a record breaking £49m deal earlier this summer.

Serbian midfielder Lazar Markovic joined Turkish titans Fenerbahce on a season-long loan deal, leaving Rodgers without a wealth of wide options.
