Illiaramendi has not been able to break into the first team at Real Madrid since his 30 million euro move to the Spanish capital and Liverpool might be looking to bring in the Spaniard to Anfield and offer him first team football.
It is no secret that Liverpool are desperately searching for a defensive midfielder who can also initiate attacks. Illiaramendi fits that bill quite well but the 25 year old has found himself benched by Modric and Kroos at the Bernabeu and with the arrival of Luca Silva, playing chances for Illiara are set to reduce as Ramos also proved that he can hold his own in that position making Illiaramendi all the more dispensable. Liverpool are set to pounce and bring in Illiaramendi who is still quite talented and influential in his rights and Rodgers believes he can fill the void left by Alonso when he departed the club for Real Madrid.
Illiaramendi would cost the Reds about 25 million Euros and they would be looking to make the deal happen before any other European heavyweights get interested in the midfielder
