Liverpool remain interested in Real Madrid forward

Real Madrid forward Denis Cheryshev is ready to force an exit from the club amid interest from Liverpool, report the Daily Express.

The Russian star has found it hard to impose himself on Rafa Benitez’s first-team with the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo, James Rodriguez and Gareth Bale jostling for positions in forward berths.

With Euro 2016 looming, the 24-year old is ready to force his way out of the Spanish capital as he looks to prepare for the championships in France.

The Reds were understood to have been keen on bringing the player to Anfield over the summer, but were unable to reach an agreement with him.

It is thought that the desire to land him has not cooled despite the change in regime on Merseyside, with a loan move mooted as a solution to all parties.

After Raheem Sterling and Lazar Markovic left the club this summer, the only natural winger available to Jurgen Klopp is England Under-21 star Jordon Ibe.
