Esteban Granero: Reported to be interesting Liverpool
Esteban Granero's agent has claimed that Liverpool are in the market for the Real Madrid ace.
Granero is finding his chances severely limited at the Santiago Bernabeu under Jose Mourinho.
Only this week reports in Spain claimed Mourinho wanted Granero to remain, despite only three Primera Liga appearances this term.
But now Granero's agent says that the 24-year-old could very well be on the move this month, and Liverpool are reported to be one of those looking to land him.
"He's finding his chances limited at Real. He's keen for a move away - possibly to Liverpool," Teo Lazaro is quoted as saying by The International Business Times.
"If he can't play at Madrid then he'll play somewhere else. It's as simple as that."
Lazaro added that he had heard nothing from Arsenal in connection with the former Spanish Under-21 international, after they were strongly linked.
Granero has found his chances limited at Real since returning to the club in 2009.
He originally left for Getafe, where he shone for two years, after which point Real used a buy-back option, but he has since failed to hold down a regular spot with Los Merengues.
