Real Madrid winger Lucas Vazquez could be flying in to Liverpool this summer.

The 23-year-old is currently on loan at Espanyol, who have the option to buy the midfielder at the end of the season for€3million (£2.1m) - and the Reds are keen to open negotiations with the La Liga outfit, Marca reports.

It is hoped Espanyol go ahead and make the move permanent, with the club then allowing him to sign on at Anfield for a profit.

Where Madrid would stand on this idea is unknown, although boss Carlos Ancelotti has said he is keen to have Vazquez, who has hit three goals in 25 appearances this term, in his plans next season.
