Deportivo La Coruna are looking to sign Liverpool teenager Antonio Barragan on loan.
The Spanish defender linked up with The Reds last summer from Sevilla and made a big impression in the reserves.
His sole first-team appearance came in the preliminary rounds of the UEFA Champions League against CSKA Sofia, but he is rated highly by Rafa Benitez.
The versatile stopper, who turned 19 earlier this month, may again have a peripheral role to play in Benitez's plans for next season.
To that end, reports in Spain claim Deportivo are willing to hand Barragan first-team experience by signing him on a season-long loan.
Deportivo are restructuring their squad for next term and are awaiting a response from Liverpool regarding their enquiry.
